More than 1.4 million vaccines administered reports state Health Secretary

Cancun, Q. R. — More than 1.4 million doses of vaccines have been administered across the state of Quintana Roo reports Health Secretary Alejandra Aguirre Crespo.

Since the vaccine can prevent people from becoming seriously ill in the event of a covid-19 infection, health authorities continue to urge people to get vaccinated noting that “the vaccine against this disease does not replace prevention actions.”

“The vaccine prevents you from getting seriously ill in case of contagion, so in order not to take risks, it is necessary to continue with preventive habits,” she said.

Aguirre Crespo explained that from the first day of January to the last day of August 1,435,352 covid-19 vaccines were administered.

She stated that of those vaccines, 35,301 were applied in health personnel with 201,342 vaccines to people over the age of 60. For those between the age range of 50 to 59, 244,618 shots were given.

Health officials saw 340,502 state residents between 40 ad 49 show up and 248,594 between 30 and 39. Youths also lined up with a total count of 325,383 vaccines being delivered to them, while 5,779 pregnant women received their shots.

Another 30,256 from the education system were vaccinated along with a mixed group of 3,577 staff of brigades, volunteers and others, she detailed.
