That is why, he said, Mexico is requesting that the Covax mechanism, backed by the UN and World Health Organisation (WHO), to send the vaccines that have been negotiated.

“We want what we are owed. The delivery of the appropriate vaccines to start the immunisation of children,” Lopez Obrador said from the National Palace in Mexico City.

The President also indicated that the inoculation process of minors will follow WHO guidelines.
