"We have been in contact with the Slim Foundation for the AstraZeneca vaccine, they tell me that at the moment they are not yet selling it but that the production that is required for the whole world as they think they calculate for September" commented the president.

Rodríguez Vallejo said that buying the vaccine will not It is depending on the federation or a government limitation, but rather that the vaccine is still in a trial stage, so it is only allowed to be sold to countries and therefore distribution is free to all health personnel.
"Here I do want to clarify it is not a blockade of the federal government that does not allow us to buy or that we do not, the Pfizer vaccine is still in the testing stage at least in Mexico and when it is a vaccine that is being tested that still cannot be marketed, they only sell it to the country so that the country can distribute it for free ”, he commented.
The governor pointed out that the supplier indicated that production has not been sufficient and that until September there could be enough for a sale to the state, however closer to the date the resource for the purchase will be seen. Depending on the supplier and manufacturing, it costs between $ 4 and $ 70 , said Diego Sinhue.
