Social media users have theorized that President Andres Manuel López Obrador could face severe repercussions after he refused to purchase Covid-19 vaccines for children, vowing that Mexico wouldn’t bow to pressure from drugs firms.

In remarks made earlier this week, the Mexican leader said his government was still waiting for the scientific community to demonstrate the benefits of vaccinating minors.

Until conclusive evidence was provided, Mexico would refuse to purchase jabs for children, as pharmaceutical firms seemed to be focused more on making profits than on ensuring medical necessity as they rake in record sales from Covid-19 vaccines.

Mexico will not be held hostage by pharmaceutical companies that only want to do business and scare children with the idea that it is necessary to vaccinate against Covid-19.

Undersecretary for Health Hugo López-Gatell claimed there was “no scientific evidence” showing the jab was “essential” for minors, given the high rate of inoculation among the adult population.

Mexico has approved a range of Covid-19 vaccines for emergency use, including shots developed by Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Johnson & Johnson, and Sinovac, as well as Russia’s Sputnik V.

Like many other countries, Mexico rolled out its inoculation program in phases, giving high-risk groups first priority. Currently, those under 18 are not included in the vaccine drive.

Largely ignored by international media, Obrador’s provocative remarks went viral after an English-subtitled video of his speech was shared across social media.

Several comments hailed the Mexican president’s “cajones” for calling out Big Pharma greed. Pfizer, for example, has boasted record profits and recently raised full-year sales estimates for its vaccine to $45 billion.

Others shared more conspiratorial reactions to Obrador’s comments. Numerous observers theorized that the Mexican president was exposing himself to potential harm or an “accident” by criticizing Big Pharma firms in such a blunt and direct manner.

While Mexico doesn’t feel comfortable administering the shot to youngsters, many other countries have begun to offer the vaccine to minors, both in clinical trials and as part of inoculation drives. According to the Mayo Clinic, around 14% of Americans under 18 have received at least one Covid-19 shot.

AMLO is president until 2024, so by then we’ll see the results of this experimental shot. The president of Mexico is limited to one 6-year term.

His win in 2018 was the 3rd attempt, the election was stolen twice before from him, but the last time it wasn’t even close, so they couldn’t cheat that easily. Hopefully he has reliable security

All of Latin America still has real left-leaning politicians, unlike Europe where the left is dead, or English speaking North America, where it never existed. And whenever a Latin American country has one of those as president, they become more independent and the people and the environment benefit. But also, the CIA will begin to interfere to find ways to oust them. You probably cannot count how many times this has happened. I would expect that the drug cartels will become even more violent and powerful soon, because the CIA is working with them already and so they are the… Read more »

I would triple my bodyguards, as already three presidents have been assassinated by the Big Pharma industry. The Presidents of Haiti, Burundi and Tanzania all of a sudden died after ignoring the vaccine obligations.
