Yesterday, Oct. 7...Noti Isla Mujeres reports that residents of the municipality of Benito Juarez (Cancun) came to the Bicentennial Dome in La Gloria to receive a vaccine, which caused long lines. The vaccine brigade only had a thousand doses, and the personnel reviewing people's documents decided to give priority to the islanders, which caused some of those from Cancun to cause a ruckus. This vaccine event began yesterday and ends tomorrow, for those who hadn't received their first dose.
