A few months ago, the grandmother of María Fernanda, 15 years old, had COVID-19, however, thanks to having both doses of the vaccine against the disease, she was able to overcome in the best way. This motivated María Fernanda to get vaccinated as soon as she could.
This Tuesday the vaccination against COVID-19 began in Jalisco, with the first dose, to adolescents between 15 and 17 years old who were registered last Friday.
“Because of the vaccine, he did very well with the disease. That is what matters most and what motivated me to get vaccinated, also to take care of her. We already needed to be vaccinated because several of us are already in school, in face-to-face classes, and thanks to this, infections can be reduced. It is very necessary because there are still people who do not take care of themselves, “he shared.
María de Jesús, his mother, added that most of your family already has the inoculation.
“One as an adult has a little more care, but they are adolescents and maybe they don’t have the same care, with this they are already a little more protected. We know that it is not 100%, but it is already something. In my house they only lack a child of 12 and one of 10, but hopefully soon it will be possible, “he said.
But she was not the only one who came on the first day of vaccination for adolescents motivated by her grandmother. Alondra Gómez, 17, was another case, as she takes care of her grandmother, who has diabetes.
“Is a extra measure to protect it In addition, in face-to-face classes there is always a risk of contagion. She already has her vaccine and that they already began to vaccinate us is super good because, despite the measures, there are always people who do not pay attention and adolescents are getting infected, “he said.
He also called on the rest of the adolescents to get vaccinated because, he said, “it is safe and necessary.”
Four days ago, the Jalisco Health Secretariat opened the registry for the first days of vaccination against COVID-19 in the state for minors between 15 and 17 years old without comorbidities or vulnerability on the page vaccination.jalisco.gob.mx.
These, along with those of the 12 to 14-year-old group with comorbidities, will be applied in 39 locations in Jalisco.
Last night, 200,070 doses of vaccines against COVID-19 were received in Jalisco from the Pfizer-BioNTech laboratories.
