The President of Mexico gets a dose of AstraZeneca vaccine at a press conference

Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador received a dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine against the Corona virus, while attending a press conference, after he delivered a speech on the importance of vaccination, to reassure citizens of the safety and security of the vaccine.

Mexican President Andres Manuel said he wants to reassure people that they follow all the studies that are being done around the world to ensure the safety of people, adding: "I want to say that there is nothing compulsory, and we as free people must exercise our freedom and conviction, but never impose a vaccine." According to CNN.

Earlier, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador announced that he would receive the "Oxford - AstraZeneca" vaccine against the Corona virus.

And Jeff Zents, the Coronavirus Response Coordinator at the White House in the United States, has officially announced that Washington will send about 4 million doses of AstraZeneca vaccines against Corona to Mexico and Canada.

Zentz clarified - according to the American (CNN) news network - that the United States will "lend" the two countries 4 million doses of vaccines while it is awaiting official approval for its use locally.

CNN had reported earlier that Mexico would receive nearly 2.5 million doses and Canada another 1.5 million.

Lopez Obrador, 67, said - as reported by (Russia Today) news channel - that the risks of the vaccine are minimal compared to its benefits, after warnings by international health organizations of the possibility of blood clots.
