The risk of contracting COVID-19 and developing severe symptoms may be lower if you are fully vaccinated, with an antigen authorized by the FDA, they say.

“Before planning any international travel, review the specific recommendations of the CDC for vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers, ” adds the US alert.

Regarding the security issue, the travel alert maintains that violent crimes such as homicide, kidnapping, car theft, are widespread in Mexico and have become common.
