Faced with doubts as to whether the United States would allow Mexicans vaccinated with Cansino and Sinovac to enter its territory once the restrictions on border crossings between this country and Mexico are lifted, the Baja California Secretary of Health, Alonso Pérez Rico, said that this would no longer be a problem.
According to the head of this agency, the White House issued a statement indicating that the type of vaccine applied will not be considered as a factor to determine if the crossing to his country is allowed.
Rather, vaccination against COVID-19 will be taken into account. "Vaccinated with any vaccine, ok, you can go in, not vaccinated, let's see", said Pérez Rico, who added that even the Chinese Cansino vaccine will be valid, as any other pharmaceutical, to enter the neighboring country.
He also mentioned that another aspect that is being considered is herd immunity, "if a state reaches herd immunity just like its citizens (U.S. citizens), then the limitation to cross is no longer there", he commented.
However, he said that they are waiting for the meeting of the groups of experts from Mexico, the United States and Canada to determine the guidelines for the reopening of the border.
It is worth mentioning that the statement mentioned by the Secretary of Health has not been shared in the official media of the White House.
