    SMA second dose of Covid-19 vaccines for people 40 and over will start Monday September 13.
    San Miguel de Allende, Gto., September 10, 2021. - This Monday, September 13, the application of the second dose of vaccines against Covid-19, from the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca for people between 40 and 49 years of age, begins.

    The doses that will reach the municipality are intended for those who have already received the first dose in the last Vaccination Day from July 5 to 7, 2021; so it is not necessary to queue too far in advance.

    The only point of application will be the “Baby Vázquez” Sports Module (formerly COMUDE Module) from 08:00 in the morning; It is very important that you come with your printed registration obtained from the mivacuna.salud.gob.mx page to speed up the process, as well as the proof of application of the first dose and your INE or CURP.

    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!
