The state official indicated that he is aware that they deserve the vaccine, as well as the entire population.
“Yes, I am aware of the letter you mention from the medicine interns that they want vaccines, and that if they don’t include them, they won’t work in our institutions. ”
“I know the behavior of young people, I respect it, I help them when I can, many of them are my godchildren, they deserve the vaccine, of course they deserve the vaccine, like all New Leonese,” he declared at a press conference.
On the other hand, the Nuevo León Health Minister stated that people who study the branch of medicine must have a vocation and service.
He also commented that it is a profession that carries many risks.
“When you study medicine you have a vocation to serve, to help others, to serve, to even risk your life to care for the lives of others.
“It is a risk, we have a great profession, male and female doctors, for me the best profession in the world; if I went back to studying something, I would go back to studying medicine,” he said.
