    When are the second doses coming to Celaya? We're already a week past the 3-week mark for the second dose. It must occur at the latest by April 21, if I'm understanding correctly. Will you spread the word re: Celaya?

    Thanks for asking!

    SMAFAQ won't be doing special coverage for Celaya but the GTO Vaccination links above will include information for Celaya. On News Wire Mexico I include coverage for Celaya. I know of no better site to find current news (in English or Spanish) for the state of GTO than News Wire Mexico. (In fact, if it is news you are after, it has better coverage of SMA than SMAFAQ does.)
