Playa del Carmen and Cozumel pediatric vaccine programs suspended after both municipalities run out

Riviera Maya, Q.R. — The Covid-19 vaccination program for young children has been temporarily suspended in Riviera Maya. Governor Carlos Joaquin announced the suspension due to an overwhelming turnout.

The suspension has been put into place for the multiplicities of Solidaridad (Playa del Carmen) and Cozumel after both ran out of the pediatric vaccines.

On Wednesday, the governor said “due to the high demand during the vaccination day for children between 5 and 11 years old, they inform me that the doses in Solidaridad and Cozumel were sold out. As soon as more vaccines arrive in the state, we will be reporting the dates of the new day.”

Both municipalities ran out after only two days of the Pfizer vaccine campaign for young children. They were scheduled to provide vaccines up to July 8, but ran out beforehand.

Young children in the municipalities of Tulum, Felipe Carrillo Puerto, Othón P. Blanco and Bacalar are still able to receive vaccines. The program for other municipalities in the state have not yet begun.
