Mexico's government on Monday urged pharmaceutical companies to honor obligations to deliver COVID-19 vaccines on time, as reported in the Financial Post.
"We reserved ahead of time, we made agreements, what we want now is for the agreements to be honored," said President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador.
Lopez Obrador acknowledged that companies were experiencing heavy demand for the vaccines, but said it was important that the accords reached were respected "on time."
Mexico has signed purchase agreements for vaccines with several companies, including from Pfizer, AstraZeneca and CanSino Biologics.
Deputy Foreign Minister Martha Delgado noted that an executive order signed last week by President Donald Trump to prioritize US citizens in distribution of US-made vaccines might delay delivery of subsequent vaccine doses arriving from the US.
