People wishing to receive the vaccine must first register at mivacuna.salud.gob.mx, and print and fill out a health questionnaire.

Adverse reactions to COVID-19 vaccines administered in Yucatán have been relatively common, but have for the most part been relatively mild to moderate.

Common side effects include fever, muscle pain, exhaustion and aching or numbness in the injection area, according to the World Health Organization.

As of Monday, Mexico’s government has administered 34.6 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines but completely immunized only 11.1% of its population.
