Mexico plans to give COVID-19 booster shot


The Mexican officials have countermanded their precursory position against giving the Coronavirus booster shots. In the latest reports on Tuesday, they have said that they are scrutinizing a plan to conduct third doses to the people over sixty.

In a bulletin came Mexico nears 450000 deaths from COVID-19. In the country, only 50% of people are fully vaccinated while the population is 126 million. 

The president of Mexico, Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has also stated that their plans for giving the booster shots are still in progress. Also in the statement, he added that “It won’t be long, we have vaccines.” The administration has resisted for a long time to adopt the safety measures taken by the other countries like mandatory face masks, travel restrictions, and also the testing throughout the country. Also, the government has resisted for a long time to vaccinate the minors but lately backed down and started administering shots to the youth too.

Also, the assistant health secretary, Hugo López-Gatell vocalized that in August there was no evidence to justify the giving of booster shots and also put forward that they were part of a campaign which was held by the vaccine manufacturers to increase their sales. At the same time, he said that the same proposal was stoutly shoved by the pharmaceutical companies but that was rejected by the international organizations saying that there are no signs or pieces of evidence that indicate the need for booster shots. 

Moreover, there are suggestions that the protection from single-dose vaccines begins to dwindle. The officials have been downplaying the threat posed by the new face of Coronavirus (Omicron) which was first identified in South Africa, saying that the strain illustrates the need to get more vaccines to poor countries. “It’s not that the new variant is terrible, it’s that the poor countries of the world have been renounced.” ~ Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.
