Mexico begins universal vaccination program to reach remote areas

Mexico City, Mexico — President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has announced a universal vaccination program that will be applied in 800 municipalities and remote communities in five states.

Mexico’s president said that the states of Veracruz, Puebla, Guerreo, Chiapas and Oaxaca will have a universal vaccination day in approximately 800 municipalities and remote communities where the single-dose Cansino vaccine will be applied in order to protect people from the third wave of COVID-19.

The program will begin with 100 municipalities in Veracruz before moving on to the remote areas of Guerrero and then Puebla. He noted that in Oaxaca, there are 570 remote municipalities, 217 in Puebla and 212 in Veracruz.

He added that the continued arrival of vaccines combined with the vaccines packaged locally, there are enough to extend the vaccination program in these remote areas.
