    Will COVID vaccines be made available in SMA?
  • Glenn Wilson
    Much of what I know about that is in the post:

    Including ...
    Federal government guarantees application will be universal and free throughout the country.
    ... Mexico will apply the coronavirus vaccine to foreigners residing in the country for free.
