Vaccination Schedules?

We'd like to know on what state or local government or public sites are posted upcoming vaccination dates? We seem to be surprised sometimes to see the long lines (thankfully!) without knowing in advance. We are still aware of unvaccinated locals who we like to encourage to get the shot as well as unvaccinated gringos in the coming months as well who we would nudge. Any help/advice will be appreciated!
Thank you!

I'll let you know here as soon as the government announces vaccines for residents and visitors of Zihuatanejo de Azueta. The government website won't be the place to find the info you seek, but it IS where you need to REGISTER in order to receive a Covid-19 vaccine. I've announced each successive vaccination process here, so if you followed me here you wouldn't've been surprised. ;-)

Thanks for your information Rob. I am hoping to learn how to find out myself when "each successive vaccination" will occur without following any sites. It must be posted somewhere "officially" in advance. Appreciate your contribution though.
Thanks!

Follow the radio, the newspapers, the local TV station and the local social media. That's how we all keep up with and keep each other up with the info you seek. Right here is the easiest place for you to check unless you want to do what I do, as mentioned above. No, it's NOT posted somewhere "officially" in advance, though sometimes the state and municipal governments want you to think they are doing so. This is still Guerrero, México. Word of mouth is still the best source of news in Zihuatanejo.

Absolutely!!!!

What you can't get on this board is hard to find. Fortunately you, Rob, sift through things for us. IF we still lived in the US, we would still be the, "clearing house" for the local, important news. I still read the Los Angeles Times daily, but mostly for the entertainment value. Occasionally there is great news to pass on.

We follow this board, https://www.meganoticias.mx/ixtapa-zihuatanejo, which changes frequently during the day, doesn't do anything on the weekends, and is biased, but can be a great source for things like vaccination schedules.

Remember, this is a country that is foreign to you and us. That is a part of it's appeal to us, and we live here permanently. There are loads of other things that make us love it here, but the occasional inconvenience, like waiting for hours for COVID vaccines, is WAY more than worth it!
