We are currently performing surgery on a normal schedule. Air passengers have been able to travel to Mexico during the pandemic and this continues to be the case. Special COVID-19 requirements or guidelines may be in place when returning to your home country.
Patients are now required to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 for at least 15 days prior to surgery. Any COVID-19 vaccine approved by the World Health Organization is acceptable. For example, patients who received the Pfizer (BioNTech) or Moderna vaccines need two shots to be considered to be fully vaccinated. Then, 15 days need to pass after the second shot before having surgery. Patients who received the Johnson & Johnson (Janssen) vaccine only need one shot followed by the 15 day period.
As an added precaution, all patients will undergo a rapid COVID-19 antigen test just prior to surgery.
