Mexico plans to give COVID-19 booster shot

The announcement came as Mexico nears 450,000 deaths from COVID-19. The country has fully vaccinato solo circa 50% del proprio 126 un milione di persone.

Presidente Andrés Manuel López Obrador said plans for the boosters are still being drawn up, ma aggiunto, “It won’t be long, we have the vaccines.

López Obrador’s administration has long resisted adopting measures like mandatory face masks, mass testing and travel restrictions that have been used in many other countries.

Assistant Health Secretary Hugo López-Gatell had said as recently as August that there was no scientific evidence to justify giving booster shots, and suggested they were part of a campaign by vaccine manufacturers to increase sales.

Mexican officials announced Tuesday, Nov. 30, 2021, that they have reversed their previous position against giving coronavirus booster shots and are studying a plan to administer third doses to people over 60.  (AP Photo/Marco Ugarte, File)
