In early July of this year Baja California achieved to vaccinate 70% of its population against COVID-19, today there are 2,111,253 people who have completed their vaccination plan, which represents 78.32% of the population.
However, in view of the new variants of COVID-19 and the upcoming arrival of the winter season, a period in which infections increased during the last wave, the Secretary of Health, Alonso Pérez Rico, said that it is possible that this entire population will have to get vaccinated.
What is being demonstrated is that the antigenic variants are increasingly beating the effectiveness of the vaccine, but the one we have is going to withstand precisely this third wave. By November we have to reinforce everything, we will surely have to vaccinate these 2.6 million Baja Californians again. We are already preparing the entire health system for November.
With the latter, he referred to the hospital auxiliary units, the health units themselves, ventilators, supplies, etc.
So far during the pandemic, according to figures from this agency, 54 thousand 669 people have tested positive for COVID-19, while 8 thousand 892 have died.
Today there are one thousand and 25 active cases, of which 417 are located in Tijuana, 319 in Mexicali, 170 in Ensenada, 47 in Rosarito, 36 in Tecate, 33 in San Quintín, and three in San Felipe.
