We’ve had many people in FB expat groups asking how & when they can get “The Vaccine” here in Yucatan – as they hoped to maybe get it in January or February.
Merida just received our first 9,750 doses of COVID … as a part of 94,000 new vaccinations nationally today. This brings Mexico’s total of (partly) vaccinated people to 197,000 – so with our finally receiving 435,000 doses of the Pfizer vaccine earlier this week (in Mexico City), our COVID vaccination program is getting underway.
Note that those 435,000 doses will go to the highest priority places in Mexico with the worst COVID-19 problems: Mexico City & Coahuila.
In the meantime, if you want to try to get registered into the Mex. Gob. Vaccination Registration system, you can use your CURP to fill out a web-form to sign up for a future appointment to get vaccinated. … Right now, the registration system is only issuing appointments for private hospital front-line medical personnel – but is expected to soon(?) start issuing appointments for people over age 79, in the areas worst hit by COVID.
The official Govt. Website describes:
“¿Cómo registrarse para la vacunación?
Para el registro de vacunación contra el Covid-19 es necesario acceder con tu CURP al sitio https://vacunascovid.gob.mx/. Cabe recalcar que por ahora el registro solo está disponible para el personal de salud y personas de la tercera edad. “
“Dónde me toca ponerme la vacuna?
Al realizar el registro se enviará un correo electrónico el cual contiene los datos de fecha, lugar y horario el cual se debe asistir para la aplicación de la vacuna. “
Finally please note that our previous report on COVID Vaccine Availablity in Mexico
contains lots of details about which COVID vaccines will likely become available during the next 4 months.
For details, see: https://yucalandia.com/2021/01/12/covid-vaccine-availablity-in-mexico/
As a part of our last 10 months of up-to-date COVID information coverage, we will continue to provide updates as they come up.
