In addition, he considered that As long as there is no total vaccination coverage for people over 18 years of age, it is better to wait for this population to be immunized with at least the first dose before starting immunization in children and adolescents later.
You definitely have to vaccinate them, now if the question is, do you have to vaccinate them at this time? I would say that it depends on the availability of the vaccine. If someone who has money and the possibility of taking their children to vaccinate in the United States is money well spent. “
“Now as public health in Mexico that depends on the vaccine that exists, the ideal is that if we had enough vaccine we would already be vaccinating all of them,” he said.

Guanajuato is a place where people do not put buts about vaccines, you put a table and people line up to get vaccinated wherever they want, here in Guanajuato there has never been any difficulty in giving vaccines. “
And yet Guanajuato does not lead the national statistics of vaccination rates, I have wondered, because you cannot give a vaccine that does not arrive, if they send us a vaccine we will finish it quickly, “he mentioned.
