A total 816,380 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine were administered. The ultimate goal is to vaccinate all citizens over 18 years of age and the president mentioned that the country is close to achieving that goal at the current rate. “On Saturday, we finished 50 and over and we continue with 40 and 49, and pregnant women, and we are going to comply so that in October, everyone over 18 years of age will be vaccinated, even with one dose.”
Mexico at peace. López Obrador said that the country is at peace and there is no risk of instability prior to the legislative elections on June 6.

You have to participate.”
