The National Vaccination Campaign has already started all over Mexico, this Friday there will be medical personnel applying the vaccine to senior citizens (over 60 years old) in the Municipal Development (DESOM) Module in San Felipe, only for those people who are older than 60 years old and made an appointment, and this figure includes about 200 Americans and Canadians living in San Felipe.
Sixty thousand people have already made an appointment to receive the first vaccination dose, nevertheless, information is somehow confusing, two days ago the Federal Delegate for Baja California, Alejandro Ruiz Uribe, said that people who didn´t make an appointment could show up at the vaccination points and request to be given the dose of the Pfizer vaccine, which is the one that has been administered since the campaign kicked off early this week.
Baja California Health secretary, Alonso Pérez Rico, has ordered all the staff involved to continue vaccinating and today it´s San Felipe senior residents turn, and said that only those who made appointments will receive the first dose against COVID-19.
Given the contrasting information given by the Federal Delegate and the Health Secretary, the recommendation to all those, older than 60 years old and who didn´t make an appointment, is to try and make one or wait for the next Coronavirus vaccine lot which will be arriving as of next week.
