    Current Stage
    Mexico started Stage 1 (primarily front line Covid health care workers) in December and started Stage 2 (other health care workers and those 60 and over) on February 15. It is expected that both Stage 1 and Stage 2 will be executing simultaneously until Stage 1 completes.

    National Policy Highlights
    The Planned Schedule
    op8d7at9v2k2qa8q.png

    Specific objectives
    Immunize at least 70% of the population in Mexico to achieve herd immunity against the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
    • 100% of the health personnel who work in the care of COVID-19.
    • 95% of the population from the age of 16.

    Strategy
    The GTAV (grupo técnico asesor para la vacuna -- technical advisory group for the COVID-19 vaccine) recommends carrying out a strategy focused on reducing the number of deaths associated with COVID-19, designed based on the mortality observed in Mexico. ...

    As recommended by the GTAV, age is the first priority axis with which the number of people killed by COVID-19 in Mexico will be reduced. (See also: "Vaccinate the 20% of the country that represent 95% of the deaths"). It is seconded by the personal comorbidities of those who are going to receive the vaccine ... the priority axis 1: age of the people, continues to be the main axis, with an emphasis on vaccinating as a priority within each age group those living with comorbidities. ...

    Prioritization of the population to be vaccinated
    Vaccination of older adults will have a primary focus on greater territorial vulnerability, so it will start with the population residing in dispersed rural areas and will progressively continue until reaching metropolitan areas. ...

    In entities where the epidemic risk traffic light remains green, an indication that the entity is at the lowest possible epidemic risk at that time, the teaching staff becomes a priority group to be immunized given the importance of returning to school activities face-to-face, thus mitigating the risk of educational and development lag for minors. ...

    Stage 2: February 2021 - April 2021
    (In Stage 2) ... more than 10 thousand vaccination points are considered in the 32 states of the country. Brigades of 12 members will be integrated, which include 30 thousand servants of the nation assigned to the Ministry of Welfare, in addition to the personnel of the various institutions of the health sector, Sedena, Navy and voluntary personnel (if required).

    It will begin by immunizing three million older adults residing in rural areas and gradually continue to small and medium-sized cities until reaching metropolitan areas and completing the goal for this stage.

    Vaccine Roll-Out Interview for San Miguel de Allende
    February 17, 2021 Interview with Edgar Fernando Tovar Rico Roadrunner Brigade Coordinator/Coordinator Nation’s Servers.

    The interview covers useful information and is split into these sections:
    1. On-line registration
    2. Confirmation Call
    3. The Appointment Call
    4. Appointment Day/Vaccination
    5. Side Effects/Waiting
    6. General Questions

    To highlight two of the questions and answers:
    3d. Will they be told which vaccine they will be receiving now or any time before the appointment?
    No. There 5 vaccines approved in Mexico. There is a distribution plan that considers localities and populations. For example, the Pfizer vaccine requires sub-zero specialized refrigeration so is being allocated for healthcare workers and urban centers that have adequate cold chain storage. It would not be used in remote areas. Another example, the Cansino vaccine is a one dose shot and is best suited for remote areas. Having said this, MUCH depends on the pharmaceutical companies and their ability to produce and supply. The current thinking is for those in the 60+ timeframe in these localities, will be receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine.

    4b. Do we know when the vaccines will arrive in SMA?
    Right now, we estimate in 2 weeks. That could change if any of the pharmaceutical supply changes.
