Mexico said it received the first shipment of Pfizer-BioNTech coronavirus vaccines on Wednesday, the day before the planned start of immunization in the country hit by the pandemic.

The doses produced by US pharmaceutical giant Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech arrived by courier plane to Mexico City, Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard said on Twitter, AFP reports.

The first vaccines will be targeted at frontline medical personnel and introduced in the capital and northern state of Coahuila due to logistics associated with the required cold temperatures.
