Our Mexican Government has announced that they will begin vaccinating elderly people next week.
For this reason … if you signed up to get the COVID vaccine, it may be time to TURN-OFF any “call-blocking” features you have on your phone.**
I got called today from an (871) Coahuila area code, asking me several questions about my interest in being vaccinated against COVID. They asked if:
1. The person receiving the call is the specific name & phone number you used to sign up for the COVID vaccine.
2. Do you still want the vaccine?
3. Do you want to be scheduled for an appointment to get vaccinated, and would like to be called when it’s time to go get vaccinated?
I was called today about this from an (871) area code (Coahuila)** – and one other person from PV has reported being called.
THIS IS IMPORTANT .. because many gringos block phone calls from unknown phone numbers, so, it might be time to turn OFF call blocking options on your phone ?? Also note, that the govt. employee calling me was very rushed, and spoke incredibly fast. …
If you are unsure, we suggest that you be prepared to ask the person calling you several simple clarifying questions:
” ¿Me preguntas si me gustaría vacunarme? “
” ¿Me preguntas si quiero una cita? “
The govt employee responded:
” Sí, ¿quieres que te llamemos para programar una cita? “
“ Claro que si, yo quiero que tu re-llamarme con mi cita para mi vacunación. … Gracias ! “
**Sidelight #1: Do most people reading this have call blocking activated on their phone (to block telemarketing calls)? and … Whom else out there is receiving this kind of call?
**Sidelight #2: If you cannot handle Spanish, you can ask the Govt. employee to contact you by your WhatsApp number – and you can use the “translate” function to communicate with them. 😉
Let’s hope that this signals a good start to Mexico’s COVID vaccination program !!
