Mexican Governors Pursue Plan To Purchase Vaccines On Their Own
Governors in Mexico are moving forward on a plan to purchase vaccines for their states.
Sonora’s Gov. Claudia Pavlovich, who’s currently the head of the National Conference of Governors, recently announced the effort.
The strategy would have to “complimentary and coordinated” with the federal government’s vaccine plan, she said.
Older residents of cities and medical professionals not inoculated in the first phase would be the priorities for any vaccines purchased, according to the governor.
Older residents of rural communities in Sonora and across the country were being vaccinated last week with the AstraZeneca vaccine. Front-line medical personnel also received their second dose of Pfizer’s but well after the recommended 21 days due to unexpected delays.
