For his part, the president Andrés Manuel López Obrador has failed this type of action. During the inauguration of the University for Well-being ‘Benito Juárez García’ in Juan R. Escudero, Guerrero, the president condemned that officials or medical personnel who do not treat patients with Covid-19, “skip the line” for the application of the vaccine.
“Let’s act with equality, no influentialism, nothing that: ‘I have money and it’s my turn, it’s up to me’ or ‘I have influences, I have handles, I know the doctor who manages health in a state ‘or who works in a health unit, in the Issste, in the Insurance or ‘I have a friend who is a politician or a union leader’ and just like that bad habit of influentialism was before, I would say of agandalle, that is now over.
There have been two, three cases where they have been abused, it is even worth saying. But we have to move forward in leaving behind that subculture of agandalle. In the case of the State of Mexico, when the vaccines started, the same thing, a doctor took his family, the governor of the State of Mexico heard that this was wrong and made the decision to separate him from office.

“Fortunately it is not the rule, it is the exception, there are very few who behave in that way, most of the people understand that we have to wait until it is our turn.
I’m going to wait until I get my turn according to my age, they will vaccinate the president when they are vaccinating adults over my age. Nobody in such delicate health circumstances can act arrogantly and the authority is obliged to set an example, ”said López Obrador.
