Mexican president congratulates creators of Covid-19 vaccine

Mexico, Jan 29 (Prensa Latina) Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador congratulated the creators of the Patria (Homeland) vaccine against Covid-19, the newspaper La Jornada published on Monday.

The president’s congratulations refer to the researchers from the National Council of Humanities, Science and Technology who participated in the research for the development of the vaccine, which, if authorized by the regulatory agency, might be administered in the country as a booster.

López Obrador also acknowledged the favorable opinion on the new vaccine issued by the New Molecules Committee of the Federal Commission for Protection against Sanitary Risks, as part of the process initiated by the Avimex laboratory to get the emergency sanitary registration.

“Patria, the new Mexican vaccine against the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, which causes Covid-19, is ready now,” the president stressed in a message posted on his X account and reproduced by La Jornada.
