Young residents of José María Morelos create long line to get vaccinated

José María Morelos, Q.R. — A long line began early in the town of José María Morelos as residents arrived for their first vaccination shot. Residents began to line up at 5:00 a.m. to ensure they received one of the 1,500 vaccines sent.

Health officials are currently vaccinating the town’s young residents, who covered a six-block area Wednesday morning in the form of a long line to get vaccinated.

On Tuesday, Governor Carlos Joaquín González emphasized the importance for locals to get vaccinated, adding that the state vaccination scheme will continue to be strengthened along with economic recovery.

The outcome in José María Morelos, a town southwest of Tulum, was one of the largest in the state with other areas such as Chetumal reporting a low turnout for the vaccination of its young 18 to 29-year-old residents.

On August 9, Tulum will begin the vaccination program for its 18 to 29-year-old youth.
