translated from Spanish: Receives 13-year-old Covid-19 vaccine in Baja California

Baja California.- A 13-year-old girl has made history in the vaccination campaign against Covid-19 in the Mexican Republic, being the first person under 18 years of age to be vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2.Ingrid Nattalie, who lives in Mexicali, Baja California, was able to be immunized with the antiticovid biologic thanks to an amparo promoted by her parents so that the minor could be inoculated before classes begin face-to-face on August 30. The dose received by bajacaliforniana was that of Pfizer-BioNTech, which for weeks has been authorized by the Federal Commission for protection against health risks (Cofepris) for emergency use in people over 12 years of age. However, despite being endorsed for this age range, the federal government has not included children under the age of 18 in the national plan for vaccination against SARS-CoV-2. Even the National Palace has repeatedly disdained immunization in infants and adolescents. According to statements made by relatives of the teenager to local media, to get them granted amparo, Ingrid Nattalie’s parents argued, in the legal appeal, that the 13-year-old needed to be vaccinated before the imminent return to face-to-face classes ordered by the government of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.Read more:  90% of schools will return to face-to-face classes on August 30: SEP When they were granted amparo, the federal policy applied in the inoculation campaign against the coronavirus was suspended on an individual basis.
