Vaccination against the coronavirus for people between 18 and 29 years old advances in Mexico City every week; However, there are five mayors of the capital of the country that have not yet received a date to apply the biological.
These demarcations are Iztapalapa, Azcapotzalco, Coyoacán, Álvaro Obregón and Cuajimalpa, entities for which the general director of Digital Government of the Digital Agency for Public Innovation, Eduardo Clark, requested solidarity so that each person wait their turn.
“It will be their turn for all of them, the five municipalities will have their turn, even the lags of the other 11 municipalities that we have concluded, but we have to wait for the communications, the guidelines and this order that we are trying to implement to ensure that it touches us all in an agile and comfortable way, ”he said last Sunday.
Regarding the excess demand in Xochimilco for this age group, Clark reported that on Thursday there was a forecast of 18 thousand people and 26 thousand 600 were vaccinated; on Friday they calculated 16,900 and 23,000 young people were vaccinated, and on Saturday 21,500 were predicted and 24,000 people arrived.
He said that the government of Mexico City plans to vaccinate 115,000 people between the ages of 18 and 29 who are residents of Xochimilco.
The official ruled out that the excess demand in Xochimilco is due to the fact that doses of Pfizer are being applied at that headquarters, which would imply a general rejection of biologics from other pharmaceutical companies.
He attributed this extraordinary demand to the fact that it is the first call for people from 18 to 29 years of that mayor’s office, as well as the fear of the increase in infections registered in recent days.
“The last week of July according to the data we have is the highest transmission of the virus in this entire third wave, in many cases, it could have been one of the weeks of highest transmission in the entire pandemic. It was a different context than what we were saying two weeks before, four weeks before, and fortunately many people realized the importance of getting vaccinated ”, he assured.
