UPDATE 1-Mexico president receives AstraZeneca vaccine against COVID-19

Tue, 20th Apr 2021 15:54

(Adds context on AstraZeneca, quotes)

MEXICO CITY, April 20 (Reuters) - Mexican President Andres
Manuel Lopez Obrador received the AstraZeneca shot against
COVID-19 on Tuesday, urging trust in vaccines after several
countries limited the use of AstraZeneca due to suspected links
to rare blood clots.

Lopez Obrador, 67, has said the benefits of getting
inoculated outweighed the risks of the low-cost shot, which is a
core pillar of Mexico's vaccination strategy.

Ahead of rolling up his sleeve for the shot at the end of
his regular daily news conference, Lopez Obrador said he wanted
to encourage all older adults to also get their shots to be
protected from the coronavirus.

"We're sure there is no risk, no danger, that there are no
serious side effects," he said, without specifically naming
AstraZeneca.

He added that his government is tracking vaccine studies
being carried out worldwide.

Lopez Obrador said he would sit for 20 minutes after
receiving the jab, as recommended by a healthcare worker who
administered the shot to the president on live television and
social media.

"It didn't hurt," Lopez Obrador said. "Right now I'm feeling
very good."

Mexico's health regulator said earlier this month that it
did not plan to limit the use of the two-shot AstraZeneca
vaccine, but was looking into information from Britain's vaccine
advisory committee.

The committee has said an alternative to AstraZeneca should
be given to people under 30 where possible.

Mexico began vaccinations late last year and has so far
fully inoculated nearly 4 million people, most of whom are
adults over 60, out of a total population of 126 million.
