President receives Astrazeneca vaccine

President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador rolled up his sleeve to get a Covid jab Tuesday, urging others to do the same, declaring “it protects us all.”

In an effort to demonstrate its safety, the president received a first dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine, which has been linked to rare blood clots in several countries.


Mexico recently received a “loan” of 2.5 million doses of the British/Swedish vaccine, and is expecting more to arrive through the Vaccines Global Access Facility (COVAX) program.
