Luis Gerardo Méndez does not want someone else to go through the painful experience of losing a loved one to COVID-19, so recommends people get vaccinated and continue to take care of the wave of new infections by the omicron variant.
The actor recalled that 10 months ago he cried like never before when he learned that his father was going to be intubated after his picture was complicated by COVID-19. Relates that at that time they predicted his father 20% chance of life, and that three weeks later he died.
I took this photo the night they told me my father would be intubated.
I have never cried so much in my life.
The doctor told us that he had a 20% chance of succeeding.
Actually that night I knew I would never see him smile again.

Luis Gerardo Méndez invites you to take care of yourself against COVID-19
Luis Gerardo made the call in light of the increase in cases around the world, specifically in Mexico.
“Ómicron is already everywhere and as we have seen in other countries, this will be the largest wave of infections. And although we hear that the symptoms are mild, this is in people vaccinated or who already had a previous infection. This variant will infect hundreds of thousands more in the country and sadly there will be more deaths. The vast majority of patients requiring hospitalization are not vaccinated. This is my story and it doesn’t have to be yours. Get vaccinated, and if you are already eligible, take your booster and let’s continue to take care of each other. Remember that the vaccine is not only for you, it is for everyone. For the community. For our country, which has one of the highest COVID fatality rates in the world. “
