Dozens of immigrants tried to get vaccinated during an event held by state and Mexican authorities, with some of them finally being immunized against the Coronavirus.
Covina Posada del Migrante shelter manager Altagracia Tamayo told reporters about 90 immigrants who live in the shelter lined up since 4 a.m. Monday at the Plaza La Cachanilla shopping center to get the vaccine.
The immigrants attended the clinic after a late call from the authorities to admit those coming from other countries.
According to Tamayo, some tried to take immigrants out from the line and forced them to take the final spots. It was not revealed who tried to take immigrants out.
The activist said six immigrants who live in the shelter had tested positive for SARS-COV-2. Tamayo said she’s interested in vaccinating most of the immigrants in order to prevent the spread of the virus. Vaccinated immigrants were first forced to file a separate application additional to the registration form.
