In Mexico, as in most countries, it was decided that health professionals should be the first to receive the Covid-19 vaccine. The reason is because of the risk they face when carrying out their activities. The risk they face is very great and it is the least that could be done to protect them. But now a dispute has arisen as to whether it is appropriate to offer a booster to maintain high doses of antibodies. So far only one pediatrician has managed to receive the endorsement to receive a third dose in our country and her story is as follows.

Progress in the national vaccination campaign

To begin with, it should be noted that in Mexico no one is authorized to receive an injection. According to the Ministry of Health (SSa) there are a total of 70 million 049 thousand 066 people have been immunized against Covid-19 in the country. The figure represents a 78 percent advance in vaccinating people over 18 years of age.

But although in other countries the application of the booster dose For health professionals, in Mexico there is still no date or at least intention that this could happen. Therefore, a pediatrician had to resort to the legal route to receive the third dose of the vaccine.

Historical fact in Mexico

Based on what was published by the newspaper The reason He is from the Secretariat of National Defense (Sedena) and works in Mexico City. After weeks since the process began, he finally received a favorable resolution. Now the only thing missing is that he be assigned a date and place to go for the immunization.

In this sense, the pediatrician obtained permission to receive the third dose for two specific reasons. The first is because he is on the front line of battle and he attends children in person on a daily basis and is in contact with parents. While the second is because she is pregnant and is 18 weeks pregnant. Therefore it is doubly vulnerable.

For his part, in December of last year he received the first dose of the Pfizer vaccine and more than seven months have passed since he completed the immunization schedule. Based on what has been indicated by some international studies, its protection could be at risk.

All of the above led her to file an amparo because it was the only one the pediatrician had to receive the third dose of the vaccine. So far it is the only case of a health professional who has achieved it in our country. Because the authorities have not informed whether they plan to enable the reinforcements, it could be an alternative that more people choose.

For now, do you think that a booster dose should be applied to health professionals?
