220 thousand 285 people were vaccinated against COVID-19 yesterday in Baja California, most of them went to the Government Center/IMOS, the Autonomous University of Baja California (UABC) Otay campus, El Trompo Museum and the Fairs, Events and Exhibitions Center (FEX).

With these figures, one million 606 thousand 150 people have completed their vaccination schedule in the State, which represents 59.63% of the population. Let's remember that as of Tuesday, June 22nd, one million 387 thousand 533 people were fully vaccinated (51.52% of the population), which means that in one day it increased by 10%.

Today, there are still more than 180 thousand Johnson & Johnson vaccines available in the state, which are expected to reach 70% of the vaccinated population, since they are single dose vaccines. It is worth mentioning that of this total number of vaccines, 108 thousand 550 are located in Tijuana.

The Secretary of Health, Alonso Pérez Rico, reminded the population that today is definitely the last day of vaccination with this drug, so he invites people to go to the different points for its application.

He also commented that in case the vaccine does not run out at the morning points in Mexicali, it will most likely be applied at night at the FEX. In view of this, they asked to be attentive to the official media of the Secretariat of Health.

"Seven days ago more than one million people were not vaccinated, today they are," said Pérez Rico, who again urged Baja Californians to get vaccinated.
