Mayor of Playa del Carmen, Laura Beristain Navarrete has announced the city’s developing plans to start an elderly vaccination program with its fresh supply of more than 6,800 vials.

Beristain Navarrete states that as of March 8, adults over the age of 60 will be primarily assisted with the first of the two Pfizer vaccine applications in an attempt to largely reduce the risk of COVID-19 within the most targeted age group by approximately 80 percent.

The Director of Physical and Mental Health, Héctor González Rodríguez instructed the elderly community to present official identification (INE), CURP and proof of address to prove their age prior to being vaccinated.

He also informed the state that online registration does not change these requirements.
