    The duration of this day will depend on the response of the public to attend to be vaccinated with the second dose, therefore, they are urged to stay informed through the official pages of the Municipal Government of San Miguel de Allende and the Ministry of Health.

    The recommendations to the San Miguel population are: respect the instructions of the authorities during their stay at the vaccination point and wear the mask at all times.

    The Ministry of Public Security and personnel from different directions of the municipal administration will provide the necessary support so that the 8th. Vaccination Day in the municipality is developed optimally. Vaccination is a universal right!
