Mexican Nurse Gets 1st COVID Jab in Latin America


A Mexican nurse has become the first person in Latin America to receive a coronavirus jab when her country began its vaccination programme today (Thurs).

Mexico received an initial shipment of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines the previous day.

A short time later, Chile began administering the same vaccine, with Costa Rica to follow later today.

Mexico has one of the highest pandemic death tolls in the world, exceeded only by the US, Brazil and India.
