Mexico's President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO) on Wednesday announced that people over 60 years old will be vaccinated as of February 14, when the country will receive 870,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine.
The Foreign Affairs Ministry expects to receive another 1.6 million doses from AstraZeneca through the COVAX alliance, promoted by the World Health Organization (WHO) to facilitate access to vaccines in Latin America.
The AstraZeneca vaccine has the most affordable price on the market. Last year, Mexico signed an agreement to receive over 77 million doses.
However, AMLO's announcement came after Germany, France, and five other European countries decided not to administer this vaccine to people over 65 years old due to the lack of information on its effectiveness for this age group.
