Part of this lot will be used to apply second doses to stragglers who have already received their first. Application will begin Sept. 7.

The state Ministry of Health said that the mechanics for this vaccination scheme will be announced once the shipment arrives. The location for macro centers and modules is yet to be confirmed.

People between the ages of 18 and 29 still have time to register on the federal platform. This is a requirement in order to be included in the vaccination process.

Over 200,000 doses of AstraZeneca vaccines will arrive in Yucatán tomorrow.

The application of second doses of AstraZeneca vaccines in the age group of 40 to 49 began Wednesday. This round will cover 18 municipalities in the interior of Yucatán.

The municipalities of Tixkokob, Temozón, Tzucacab, Timucuy, Temax, and Tixpéual were the first to receive their second doses. 

On Thursday, vaccines will move on to the municipalities of Teabo, Tixcacalcupul, Tetiz, Tahmek, Yaxkukul, and Telchac Pueblo.

Around the country, over 47 million people have received at least one dose of a vaccine against Covid-19, informed the Ministry of Health.

The state of Yucatán says to have vaccinated over 70% of its population.
