Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Monday that the government would try to reduce the supply of Pfizer vaccine against Kovid-19 to other distributors.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has discussed with Pfizer that the agency’s DOS portfolio could be distributed to poorer countries.
Mexico expects to deliver about 400,000 doses a week of the Fischer vaccine, developed in partnership with Germany’s Biotech. Lopez Obrador told a news conference that Mexico would receive only about half of what it received after agreements between the American pharmaceutical company and the World Health Organization.
It is not clear how long it will take to reduce. Pfizer did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The Pfizer / Biotech vaccine is currently the only vaccine currently being distributed in Mexico, making it the fourth most deadly pandemic in the world.
Mexico also signed agreements to buy vaccines from British AstraZeneca and Chinese Cancino. Mexico has approved AstraZeneca dosage and is expected to receive it by March. The country is still analyzing the canine vaccine.
Mexico should produce the AstraZeneca vaccine, Foreign Minister Marcelo Abrad said on Twitter, with Argentina sending the active ingredient to Mexico.
