The government of Canada donated 3.1 million dosages of Pfizer-BioNTech covid-19 vaccines to Mexico on Thursday, July 28, to be administered to minors.
The vaccines, which were delivered early Thursday morning via a Federal Express (Fedex) airplane, were received by Mexican authorities at the Toluca International Airport arriving from Memphis, Tennessee.
They were the first arrivals in Mexico of vaccines donated by Canada.
In a brief ceremony, Canadian Ambassador to Mexico Graeme C. Clark spoke about the friendship between the two countries and their shared commitment to work permanently to promote regional post-pandemic recovery.
Between Dec. 23, 2020, and now, Mexico has received 121 shipments of contracted-for Pfizer vaccines.
This constituted the first donation of Pfizer vaccines that Mexico has received.
