On Tuesday April 19, 2022, Baja Californian Governor Marina del Pilar Ávila Olmeda led the first anti Covid-19 community-wide vaccination campaign that took place simultaneously in several communities of the state. All of this is so that people are protected against the virus.
The tour and outreach to the public took place at Colonia Florido Morita in Eastern Tijuana, where the governor spoke directly with families in their homes in order to find out firsthand their needs, promote wellness among people, and supervise the vaccination process carried out by vaccination brigades.
Along with the Secretary of Health of Baja California, José Adrián Medina Amarillas, Marina del Pilar stated that ”the vaccine is life” which is why it will be given to all those who need it the most. This is so that Covid-19 doesn’t risk the health of people in the state and the epidemiological traffic light can remain under the green light.
Besides vaccination actions against Covid-19[b], Governor Marina del Pilar instructed members of her administration to solve the different problems that neighbors of Eastern Tijuana are facing, problems that the governor herself has been told about personally.
As part of her tour through this community, at Tijuana’s [b]Rehabilitation Child Center Teletón (CRIT), Marina del Pilar gave a special assistance pass to Carlos, a boy with a disability that will be able to receive specialized evaluations which will allow him to get the therapies he needs.
On the other hand, Marina del Pilar spoke with a group of single mothers that had applied to receive the Violet Card issued by the Secretariat of Social Integration and Wellness (SIBSO) which gives an economic benefit to all women in vulnerable conditions that are looking to give their loved ones a better life.
Lastly, Marina del Pilar encouraged everyone to get vaccinated and to take into account the efforts carried out by authorities and health personnel in applying all of the necessary doses to strengthen the immunization process in Baja Californians.
Let’s take care of each other. Let’s get the vaccine. The vaccine is life and health for all of us and it represents a return to normalcy, to a life as we knew it before Covid-19.
