Fernando Petterson Aranguren reported
The Secretary of Health in Jalisco, Fernando Petersen Aranguren, announced the end of the vaccination campaigns against Covid-19 for the adult population in the state, including the municipality of Puerto Vallarta, after having reached 80 percent of those over 18 years of age with a complete vaccination schedule.
"Fortunately, the efforts are yielding results and at this moment active cases, hospitalizations and deaths due to SAR-CoV-2 virus infection are at a very low level, thanks to the fact that the population assumed the preventive measures and proved that they are effective," said the secretary.
He detailed that among these measures applied, the vaccination that started in the state of Jalisco during the month of January 2021 stands out.
To date, more than 12 million doses of Covid-19 vaccines have been administered to adults in Jalisco, reaching 86 percent of those over 18 years of age with at least one dose and 80 percent with a complete vaccination schedule.
THE PANDEMIC IS NOT OVER
Petersen said that two years and seven months after the first cases of Covid-19 in the state, the pandemic is still not over and he invited the population of Jalisco to be responsible with their health and self-care during this winter season.
Among the preventive measures, the Ministry of Health of Jalisco (SSJ) will continue with the application of the pediatric vaccine against Covid-19, as it has not yet reached 50 percent coverage of children aged 5 to 11 years (two doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech biologic), added Petersen Aranguren.
The Secretary of Health invited the population to visit the website vacunacion.jalisco.gob.mx to know the addresses of the Health Centers both in the Metropolitan Area of Guadalajara (AMG) and in the interior of the state, where doses are available for children from 5 to 11 years old, without appointment (or by appointment in the AMG).
Whether with or without appointment, complete documentation must be brought: CURP, federal record, official identification (of the adult accompanying the minor) and, if applicable, proof of the last dose received and appointment with printed QR.
