Vaccinating the world against COVID-19 is critical to protect everyone from the virus.

Canada is pleased to contribute to Mexico’s ongoing national vaccination campaign through this shipment of doses. Canada remains committed to ensuring that countries around the world have access to COVID-19 vaccines through its investments in the COVID-19 Vaccine Global Access (COVAX) Facility, as well as through direct, bilateral donations such as this one.

This donation is a sign of the strengthening of bilateral relations between Mexico and Canada, and the common goal of protecting the health of their populations, agreed Rodrigo Carranza Vega, Director of Internal Control Monitoring and Transparency of the National Center for Child and Adolescent Health (Censia); Roberto Velasco Álvarez, head of the North American Unit of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (SRE), and the Canadian Ambassador to Mexico, Graeme C. Clark, during the reception ceremony.

Ambassador Clark stated, “These doses will help bring Mexico closer to reaching its vaccination targets. As friends and neighbours in North America, we are committed to working closely with Mexico to promote the recovery from the pandemic and the well-being of the people in the region.”
