The US has required that Mexico send their tetanus vaccine north of the border. This is hard to believe but on Tuesday of this week Humberto and I had to visit 4 different hospitals so that he could get his booster for a dirty wound.
The only reason he got what he needed was through the good heartedness of Lorena from the Mojoneras clinic who advocated on his behalf at the State hospital somewhere in the hills behind Central Camionera.
I am totally shocked that a country like Mexico should be sending their precious tetanus vaccine to the US.
Mexico desperately needs all its tetanus vaccines to prevent tetanus which is deadly without vaccination.Mexico is a rual country and wounds are frequently contaminated with soil which harbors the tetanus spores.
