By BBN Staff: Mexico has received a shipment of 870,000 AstraZeneca vaccine doses from India on Sunday.
The country has laid out plans to vaccinate the elderly, the country’s poorest and the residents in most remote areas first, the Associated Press reports.
Frontline health workers in the country received doses of the Pfizer vaccine but those have almost been depleted.
The AstraZeneca shots were purchased at $4 each and will soon be distributed.
“The decision has been made to start in the most remote, marginalized towns with the country’s poorest population,” said President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
Mexico hopes to get enough vaccines from Pfizer, Russia, China and India to vaccinate all Mexicans over 60 by mid-April.
