Resident doctors in USA have been dismissed due to lack of reinforcement against COVID

Mexican medical residents enrolling and exchanging at universities in the United States are suffering because of the lack of a new Covid-19 vaccination booster supported by the World Health Organization, WHO or the FDA (Food and Drug Administration). USA), as Mexico only has Cuban supplements.

According to its official website:, one of the requirements to apply for medical rotation at Harvard University is to have “FDA or WHO authorized COVID-19 vaccines, including all dosages described A new Covid-19 bivalent booster administered after September 1, 2022 for the primary series and all eligible students.

“If you are present on campus, you will need to present proof of vaccination to University Health Services.

“You must submit the documents within 7 days of enrolling in any on-campus course.”

Interviews by medical students and professors shavings He explained that it has become impossible for residents to apply for overseas rotation, as universities such as Harvard in the United States do not allow them to complete their registration, due to a lack of the new Covid-19 vaccine booster, supported by the WHO. .

While nursing and nutrition students from the Autonomous University of Chihuahua, UACH, have also faced problems completing their stays in hospitals and public health centers in the state of Chihuahua, as one of the requirements is to have a Covid-vaccination certificate.19 Boosters are included with the 4th, 4th and 5th doses.

“They are asking us to have five Covid vaccines when most students in the state do not even have a third reinforcement and the same health officials explain to us that Mexico does not have a fifth dose, therefore, because of this need because of the lack of , many students are opting out of our internships,” he pointed out shavingsA Nursing student at UACH.

In September 2022, the Mexican Ministry of Health signed a contract with the Cuban government for new reinforcement doses to receive 9 million doses of the Abdala vaccine against Covid-19, Hugo López-Gatell, Undersecretary of Prevention and Promotion of Health Reported. Which is not supported by the World Health Organization.

The only reinforcements of Covid-19 vaccines the Mexican population has received are the Cuban ones and none endorsed by the WHO, such as: Pfizer/BioNTech, AstraZeneca/Oxford, Janssen, Moderna, Sinopharm, Sinovac, Bharat, Novavax, Casino and Valneva .

“I believe that the authorities supplying vaccines should turn to pharmaceutical companies that are already consolidated around the world and not ‘buy’ from countries that do not even have Phase 3 research. This could have a very serious impact on the lives of Mexicans, our country Mexico ranks first in the world in the death rate from COVID-19 and we cannot allow this unfortunate statistic to be repeated.

In addition to the fact that without WHO support these vaccines would prevent Mexicans from studying in foreign universities, working in other countries and even participating in sports and cultural competitions, ”Adrian Verdin, an intensive care doctor Zendejas said in an interview. For the Mexican Council of Medicine. criticism.

In late December, via a YouTube video, Alejandro Macias, the former health commissioner who dealt with the Influenza A (H1N1) pandemic in Mexico in 2009, warned that Abdala was “a vaccine that has original sin because the phase without the three being studied en masse in more than 1,000,000 people in Cuba. It has also not been studied as a booster.”

“It is unfortunate that parallel effects such as the need for large numbers of Mexicans to travel abroad were not taken into account in the decision to purchase the vaccine.

It is not just about tourism; In addition to not knowing their efficacy against new variants or reinforcements that may emerge in 2022, the use of vaccines that are not listed by WHO for emergency use, as is currently the case in Mexico, closes doors and opportunities for students is, researchers, and individuals. business”, argued Javier Tello, surgeon and public health policy analyst.

There are other arts universities in the United States, such as Bate College in Maine State, which requires its students, on the recommendation of the FDA, to have a full vaccination schedule and reinforcement with a “bivalent vaccine” based on the origin (parental) SARS- strain” of CoV-2 and Omicron variants BA.4 and BA.5 (BA.4/BA.5) of SARS-CoV-2.

“The bivalent vaccine began to be implemented last September. It is manufactured by Pfizer and Moderna and protects against the original version as well as the Omicron variant. And Abdala was not made for that,” Telo explained.

Currently, in January 2023, the versions of Covid circulating in the world are very different from the original virus, so vaccines made with that early version of Covid from Wuhan, such as Abdala, are already there, according to intensivist Verdin. practically obsolete.

“Unfortunately, in Mexico, people’s immunity, health, and possibly lives today are divided between first-class citizens, who can go abroad to get vaccinated with up-to-date vaccines, and second-class citizens, The ones that will keep the government have decided to implement”, Javier Tello concluded.
