Second batch of Covid vaccines arrive in Mexico

Mexico City, Mexico — The second batch of Covid vaccines has arrived in the country. The plane carrying the 42,900 vaccines arrived at the Mexico City International Airport from Belgium over the weekend.

The Pfizer vaccines will continue to be distributed to the country’s health care workers before being rolled out to the general public. The first batch, which arrived last week, was also reserved for use for Mexico’s health care personnel.

Zoé Robledo, director of the Mexican Social Security Institute of Mexico said that the application to health personnel will continue.

“Now, what is up to us is the identification of the health personnel to be vaccinated. These personnel are the initial target population. It is strategic to protect those who have protected us and continue to protect us,” he said.
