President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has announced the launch of a COVID-19 vaccination registration website.

The website is mivacuna.salud.gob.mx — but as this story was posted, it was down, presumably from heavy traffic.

For now, the website is only accepting registrations for people aged 60 years or older.

Aside from the age range, other requirements include having a Mexican population registry code or CURP, as well as a Mexican domicile and valid email address.

There has been no official statement regarding foreigners’ ability to register on the site, but presumably, all persons 60 or over with a CURP should be able to register. AMLO has in the past stated that the vaccine would be free and universal.
