According to the Undersecretary of Health Promotion and Prevention, Hugo López-Gatell, today there were only 4 thousand 32 vaccinations due to the transfer period to mass vaccination, where it is intended that all health personnel in the country be protected against covid-19

"Today we had a more modest achievement of 4 thousand 32, for what reason, because we are already in the period of transfer towards mass vaccination, this is what explains that today we have had a much lower vaccination because the personnel of the units of vaccination and logistics are already oriented to what will explode tomorrow as mass vaccination, "he commented.

The federal official recalled that the vaccination began on December 24 and then there was a supply of two large blocks of just over 55 thousand vaccines and there is a linear progression. He also mentioned that starting tomorrow it will grow rapidly due to mass vaccination.

López-Gatell said that tomorrow there will be a thousand vaccination brigades , made up of twelve people each representing different institutions, which will be deployed in more than 800 hospitals that attend covid-19

"Tomorrow they will be vaccinated in some routes of displacement that this morning our Secretary of National Defense explained the order of displacement in national territory, these routes of displacement will be achieved on the same day, during this day the personnel will be deployed to vaccinate at all 32 states, "he said.

The Undersecretary of Health commented that from now on the shipments that bring the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine will be of more than 430 thousand doses every week and that they will arrive every Tuesday with the aim of covering all health personnel, so that by the end of January all health personnel should have been vaccinated.

The official added that it will not only be first-line doctors, but also those who perform support or auxiliary tasks such as orderlies, receptionists, laboratory workers, social workers, nutritionists, dietitians, among other categories.
