Before the secretariat released its report, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador published a message on social networks in which he hoped that vaccines would help overcome the health crisis.
“This will help a lot to get out of this nightmare, health crisis, of this pandemic that has caused us so much pain,” he said.
López Obrador also pointed out that they have 32,000 million pesos for the purchase of vaccines for this year, of which 6,500 million pesos have already been paid in advance to buy enough doses for the entire population.
He assured that his government will maintain the commitment that no one is left without medical attention if they need it.
Mexico was one of the first countries in Latin America to start the vaccination process against COVID-19. More than 53,000 doses have already been received, of which 32,824 have been applied to medical personnel in COVID hospitals. During January 1.4 million doses will be received to complete all health workers.
After medical personnel, the vaccination plan contemplates vaccinating the elderly, a vulnerable sector, and also teachers.
