The president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, reported this Sunday during his tour in Guerrero, that his government accepted that the deliveries of vaccines against Covid-19 from Pfizer laboratories be reduced, at the request that the United Nations Organization ( UN) to avoid hoarding and have access to poor countries.
“Now in the world there is a controversy because The UN has asked Pfizer to lower its deliveries to the countries in which it has a contract, as is our case, European countries, so that a quantity of vaccines is made available to the UN and that there is no hoarding, and that the UN also makes these vaccines available to poorer countries.
We agreed with that, that they lower us and then replace us with what corresponds to us, ”said the Mexican president.
However, he said this does not change the inoculation plan in Mexico “because we are looking for other vaccines anyway.” He recalled that Mexico has managed vaccines with other laboratories.
“In any case, it does not change our plan, because we are already looking for other vaccines, not just Pfizer.. We are already in deals to start arriving a vaccine called CanSino, from China; and a vaccine from a Russian laboratory, plus an AstraZeneca vaccine, from the University of Oxford. So we are going to have enough vaccines ”, assured López Obrador.
The president revealed that the UN has asked the pharmaceutical company Pfizer to lower its deliveries to the countries with which it has a contract, such as Mexico, so that a quantity of vaccines is available to said body “and that there is no hoarding” .
The goal, he said, is for the UN to make these vaccines available to poorer countries.
So far, Mexico has agreements for 34.4 million doses from Pfizer, 77.4 million from the British AstraZeneca, 35 million from CanSino and 34.4 million from the Covax platform of the World Health Organization (WHO), in addition analyzes the purchase of 24 million of the Russian Sputnik V.
Finally, he stressed that the last shipment of vaccines will be “practically concluded”, before the next Tuesday arrives “we will not have unapplied vaccines, very few.”
And he pointed out that with this the country will have “more authority and more right than those who receive the vaccine and do not apply it,” as he assured that this is happening in some European countries.
“But if we apply the vaccine – that is what I was referring to – then we are going to have more authority and more right than those who receive the vaccine and do not apply it, they have it frozen, that is happening in some European countries; then, there are claims to the interior of each country, where there are state or provincial governments, or countries that are independent, where it is being questioned that there are regions where 100 is applied and other regions where it has not been applied, which is frozen, inside there is that controversy.
In the case of Mexico, the last shipment – tomorrow we may report – will be practically completed. We will not have unapplied vaccines, very few, that is why it is very good news that the governor gives, that everything that was sent to Guerrero to COVID hospitals, everything was applied this weekend, ”the Mexican president stressed.
Mexico seeks to vaccinate its almost 130 million inhabitants with a plan that is already underway and that will culminate in March 2022, with an investment of 32,000 million pesos (about 1,600 million dollars) .In the first stage, it intends to vaccinate personnel. of health and in the second to about 15 million people of the third age, until March of this year.
