MEXICO CITY (Reuters) – Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Thursday that following a conversation with U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris, the United States had agreed to send Mexico one million doses of Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine against COVID-19.

“I expressed our gratitude in the name of the Mexican people,” Lopez Obrador wrote on Twitter.

Earlier, Lopez Obrador had said Mexico vaccinated more than one million people in a single day on Wednesday, the highest number on record.
