During his report this Monday, the head of the Secretariat of Health, Alonso Perez Rico, commented that there was information circulating among the population about the lack of interest on the part of senior citizens residing in Tecate to receive the anti-COVID vaccine, which he denied.
"The scenario that patients or people from other cities go to the vaccination points to get vaccinated because it is expected that the communities of Tecate are not having much attendance, is not real. Those from Tijuana and Ensenada are not going to get vaccinated in Tecate. Yesterday (Sunday) there was a confusion that there was a call to a neighborhood that borders between Tijuana and Tecate and it was perceived that people from Tijuana were being vaccinated in Tecate; this is not correct, we are going to vaccinate and close Tecate", explained the Secretary.
He also stated that this type of action not only causes a person from that community to be left without their vaccination, but also affects the vaccination logistics.
On the other hand, the head of this agency mentioned that vaccination will begin today in Ensenada and starting this week also in the suburban and urban areas of Mexicali, with Rosarito and Tijuana remaining as pending. "Surely by the end of this week or early next week we will start with Tijuana," he commented.
In order to receive the drug, adults over 60 years of age must present their CURP and an ID.
Looking at the spaces that could be used as vaccination sites in big cities, such as Tijuana, Perez Rico said that they will resort to massive scenarios to vaccinate more people and outdoors.
Finally, he added that another shipment of the vaccine will arrive this Tuesday from Pfizer, which will be destined to the suburban areas of Mexicali, and with the next shipment that arrives in the state, the vaccination will begin in Tijuana.
