#Jesús #Ortega #Martínez, director of #Laboratorio #Santo #Domingo, revealed to MILENIO that they already made the first contacts with #Russian authorities to analyze the importation of the vaccine #Sputnik V.

“We would love to include the vaccination system for the business unit, and we are waiting for it to be possible. #We even had an approach with the #Russian embassy, ​​and we are in talks to make a formal request for the possibility to import the vaccine, “he explained.

#In this regard, #Juan #José #González, #Medical #Director of #Laboratorio #Santo #Domingo, pointed out that the importation of vaccines can take between 3 and 4 months.

“As such, we already started the procedures last month and we hope that the authorities will authorize and review us. #To begin with, you have to have a special refrigerator at less than 60 degrees, a series of vaccine logs that you have to monitor, and it is a somewhat cumbersome procedure. #But, fortunately, as we already have a blood bank, it will be very simple for us, ”he explained.

#Ortega #Martínez pointed out that at this time they do not know what the cost to the public of the vaccine would be.

#Separately, #Salvador Díaz #González, president of the #Association of #Industrialists of the #Otay #Table, in #Tijuana, #Baja #California, announced that this organization has already contacted #Pfizer in order to acquire its anticovid vaccine to immunize the employees of the companies to those it represents.

“#We already have contact with the pharmaceutical company, which is the same one that provides vaccines to the federal government, this after the announcement made by the #President of free purchase,” said the representative of the maquiladoras in #Tijuana.

#He stressed that for employers acquiring the doses against the virus “is cheaper than tests to detect covid and the main thing is that it helps the health of the staff.”

#According to Díaz #González, #Pfizer stated that there will be availability of vaccines for purchase by private companies, but they will have to wait until the deep-freezing systems required by the biological developed by the pharmaceutical company are ready.

#Meanwhile, they are working on speeding up the procedures for importing them, declared the #Baja #California business leader.

#For his part, the governor of #Nuevo #León, #Jaime #Rodríguez, reported a meeting with businessmen of the entity and the state secretary of #Health, #Manuel de la O #Cavazos, to analyze the purchase of the vaccine abroad.

“Let’s hope that the statement (by López #Obrador) does not remain in a speech because then it will be that #Cofepris will not give us permission and we will continue to have problems. I will stop what I have to stop doing to buy the vaccine and the businessmen have made the offer to buy it for all workers and that is good, we all have to make an effort, ”said the #New #Leonese president.
