jrod Posted March 15, 2021 Report Share Posted March 15, 2021 Updated just now: Two updates to the ever-changing details needed to get your vaccine tomorrow. 1) The Jocotepec vaccination date has been moved up from a Wednesday start to tomorrow, Tuesday, coinciding with the Chapala and Ajijic start. 2) About 40 minutes ago, Governor Alfaro posted that the Ajijic location is the Cultural Center on the plaza. This contradicts the interim mayor’s dinnertime video update (with separate still images from other sources corroborating) that the location is to be at the Malecón. Heck if I know where in Ajijic actual vaccinations will be administered but residents from San Antonio and Riberas west to La Canacinta are supposed to go to the Ajijic location. Update from the interim delegado a few minutes ago: The Lakeside administration of the Sinovac vaccine begins tomorrow, Tuesday, in Chapala, Ajijic, and Jocotepec—note that these are different from the locations previously posted—and the vaccination runs Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. He did not repeat the hours, but those communicated earlier are 8-4. 2,600 tokens per day will be released. (Note: He doesn't clarify if this includes both Chapala and Ajijic or is the quantity for each of the two locations.) People from other municipalities are welcome, but priority will be given to those from the Chapala municipality. Here are the locations: In Chapala, the "antigua presidencia" (former) municipal (the yellow building) on Madero, #226, which is the corner of Hidalgo (the carretera) and Madero, northwest corner at the traffic light. In Ajijic, on the malecón at Calle del Paseo (the street that runs parallel to the malecón.) In Jocotepec at the Regional Hospital on the carretera. He says you need to bring: your registration doc from mivacuna.gob.mx, the original and a copy of your INE (for expats, make a copy of your temporal/permanente), your CURP and proof of address. _____________________________________________________________________________________ Governor Alfaro announced around 8:30 pm tonight that part of the newly-arrived shipment of 54,000 doses of Sinovac Covid-19 vaccine is destined for Chapala and Jocotepec. "Me da gusto informar que hace unos momentos llegaron a Jalisco alrededor de 54 mil dosis de la vacuna Sinovac que, según el Plan Nacional de Vacunación, serán aplicadas la semana que viene en 11 municipios más: San Juan de los Lagos, Encarnación de Díaz, Jocotepec, Tizapán El Alto, Zapotlán del Rey, Tuxcueca, Ocotlán, La Barca, Chapala, Ciudad Guzmán y Zapotlán El Grande. Desde ya estaremos trabajando con los municipios para ayudar en todo lo necesario. Seguiremos informando." Actual dates and locations have not yet been released for Chapala but Jocotepec just posted their vaccine schedule from 8-4 on Weds-Fri, 17-19 at the Community Hospital. NOTE: Joco is asking for original and copy of one's proof of address. #Vacunas | Los días 17, 18 y 19 de marzo, en #Jocotepec se aplicarán vacunas contra #COVID_19 a personas de la 3ra edad. Las vacunas se aplicarán en el Hospital Comunitario Jocotepec, en un horario: 8:00 am a 4.00 pm. In previous Covid-19 vaccine administrations, IMSS clinics, schools, convention areas have been used. The IMSS clinic in Seis Esquinas was previously announced as the Ajijic location; there is an IMSS location in Chapala at Flavio Romero as well. Of course, things change and hopefully more locations will be added. FUN FACT: 15.4 percent of Jalisco’s over 65 population resides in the municipality of Chapala; NOT SO FUN FACT: people over age 60 are eligible, so expect longer lines in the municipality than in a community with a bunch of youngsters, as more of us are eligible. Out-of-the way locations tend to get fewer people than busy, central vaccination locations. I’ve been checking with already-vaccinated people and the process seems fairly consistent from community to community. You need to take the following documents with you: • Your printed CURP • Official ID (permanente, temporal, INE if you are Mexican); make a copy in case they want it. • Proof of address, such as your CFE or Telmex bill (some places do not require, some do); again, a copy in case they want it. • The printout of your mivacuna.salud.gob.mx registration. If you have not yet registered, see the web address in this bullet point to register, then print your confirmation. In other Covid-19 vaccine locations here in Mexico the process has been this: One stands in line; usual opening time is 8 am. If you get there earlier, expect the line to have formed already as it is more comfortable to wait in the dark/shade than it is in afternoon sun. Be advised that some people line up more than two hours early. You’ll at some point get a number in the queue. Take sunglasses and a hat; water; many people took some type of seating, especially if you have an issue standing for hours. Social distancing, masking and all safety precautions are recommended, but picture a gazillion seniors in line at Seis Esquinas and you have an idea of what you’ll face. Unless they’ve improved the process, you likely will wait hours. And more hours. The line moves, in spurts. The reason it stops at times for longer periods is that after you get your shot, a group of a predetermined size waits together to ensure there is no adverse reaction from the vaccine, as well as it allows them time to prepare, process, and distribute to you your updated paperwork that shows which vaccine and lot you received, and when your return date is. That will take 15-30 minutes for each group. MAKE A COPY OF THIS DOCUMENT IN CASE YOU LOSE IT; PERHAPS STORE IT IN YOUR PHONE as well. HERE IS THE PROCESS MOST SITES HAVE FOLLOWED IN JALISCO: The health brigadiers have you fill out a form that functions as your registration; they'll get information from your CURP and Permanente/Temporal/INE cards. You also will be asked to communicate your telephone number, email, and zip code. If that will be difficult for you to provide in Spanish or would slow the line for others behind you, print this information neatly on a paper and take it with you to hand to the volunteer registrar. They'll fill in other details, such as the location where you are vaccinated and that location's federal health ID, called a CLUES. Next, you answer the following questions on the registration form by checking the appropriate box (yes or no): Do you present comorbidities? HIV (VIH in Spanish), diabetes, obesity, hypertension COPD (EPOC in Spanish), cerebrovascular, asthma, chronic renal issues, currently in treatment for cancer, immunosuppression. “YES” TO ANY OF THESE IS OK—It is to track comorbidities, not to exclude you. You also will be asked if you have been vaccinated in the last 30 days against: Influenza, Hepatitis B, or Measles/Mumps/Rubella (SR in Spanish). “YES” TO ANY OF THESE MAY EXCLUDE YOU from being vaccinated at this time. Multiple vaccines within 21 days lowers their efficiency, which is the reason for this question. At the end, you will get a receipt with info that includes your name and CURP, details on your vaccination dose and lot/batch number, some info on the vaccinator, and your return date for the second shot. (SInovac is a two-dose vaccine.) Keep that in a safe place for your second vaccine appointment. I hope this helps you prepare for your vaccine. 6 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
