Mexico COVID-19 Vaccine Update

We are receiving many inquiries regarding COVID-19 vaccines in Mexico, and we advise you to follow Embassy advice and alerts. Here is the guidance from the Feb 19th health alert:

The Mexican government has approved several COVID-19 vaccines for emergency use.  Federal health authorities have assured the vaccine will be available to Mexican citizens, as well as temporary and permanent residents. The Mexican government’s vaccine signup portal requires registrants provide their Clave Única de Registro de Población (CURP).  A CURP is a unique identity code that Mexican citizens and permanent and temporary residents are issued.  If you don’t know your CURP, you can search for it on RENAPO's web page. Local policies for vaccination may vary, so we encourage you to consult with your health care authorities and health professionals about how to receive the vaccine.  Please review our English language instructions on how to register for the vaccine.  At the time of your appointment, you may be asked to provide evidence of identity and residence.  Please contact the local entity distributing the vaccine to confirm the documentary requirements prior to your appointment.  We encourage U.S. citizens residing in Mexico to follow host country developments and guidelines, in particular, the Government of Mexico’s national vaccination plan against COVID-19 (Spanish only).
