  1. You are correct in that nobody is exempt, and part- and full-time workers are treated equally under the law. However, the calculation is proportional for a part-time worker. And the "holiday bonus" is not a discretionary bonus--the aguinaldo is required by law. Therefore, the math gets a bit complicated. Smartest and safest advice is to go to one of our well-regarded local attorneys to have the calculation confirmed for you and a contract drawn up. You can then use this contract as a template for future workers.

  2. 1:46 Friday

    they called from la Barca hospital just now. The event tomorrow is postponed and they don’t have a new date yet.

    12:49 pm Thursday

    As noted below, only Ajijic Radio on-line has posted this information for first-timers for the Covid vaccine BUT I've still not been able to confirm independently. I've been calling the hospital since 8 am and just got a live person who also cannot confirm. She did give me two extensions, and I've left messages and a callback number at each. So, for now, I cannot say with certainty that this event is legit.  If you want to verify yourself, the phone number is 393-759-5980. After the recording, dial either of these two extensions-- x 1097 or x 4071. I've left messages and a callback number at each, and will update if I hear anything. For now, there is no confirmation that this is "on" for Saturday.

    Saturday only in La Barca at regional hospital. Single-shot Cansino
    (NOTE: I only have seen this posted on the original source, noted below. I've not been able to confirm it, but this was posted late Wednesday Here's the phone number and address, to confirm: AddressVenus 84, Col. Fraccionamiento del Sol, 47910 La Barca, Jal. Phone: 393 759 5980)

    2nd doses have happened in all the small towns, so it should happen here as well.  

    Actually, that is incorrect. Statewide, most seniors are awaiting their second shots. It appears that the cry to vaccinate private medical workers and teachers (so some schools can open in person on May 17) has bumped the anticipated schedule.

    Tonalá announced this afternoon the second-dose Covid-19 vaccines are Tues-Fri of this week; alpha order and only 5 locations (down from the original 11.)


  4. Add "Secretaria de Salud Jalisco" to the list above.

    If you go to each link and click the "Follow" button (and you can go into the settings and raise the viewing priority of each to your liking) you'll get alerted to updates.

    Outside of FB, El Informador, El Mural, El Financiero papers update federal and state deliveries, which then filter to the local official media sources on FB.

    Building outside Soriana. Pay inside Soriana. I think PCR is ready next day. Cost 2000+ pesos. Open 8-4 Monday through Friday. Get there early. Other test sites 4000+ pesos. 

    PCR results at the Soriana location are 48-72 hrs, they told me Friday. They also are open 8-1 on Saturdays. Pay first at a register inside Soriana, then take your receipt to the trailer.

    Antigen test results were received a few hours after the sample, via email. Had name, DOB, QR code etc. on the pdf. $485.00.


  6. Hector, the Chapala EXPAT Liaison who initially posted the info, now says: 
    Save the Nation is a no show and not answering the Delegados calls.We. apologize ,but, it is out of our control
    As soon as we know something we will post here. So sorry! Your friend Hector!


    The Guadalajara Reporter, however, says you can go next week to the old City Hall in Chapala and pick up.
    Persons who were vaccinated in Ajijic last week and did not receive an official comprobante (voucher) verifying that they got the shot will be able to pick up the document today, Thursday March 25 and tomorrow, March 26, according information provided by Chapala government officials early this morning.
    The location is the Biblioteca Virtual, the lavender-colored computer module situated next to the restrooms at the Ajijic Malecón, that will reportedly be open from 9 a.m. until at least 2 p.m.
    Individuals who were vaccinated or representatives going in their place will be asked to show an official identification (Mexican INE voter credential or INM foreign resident card) of the shot recipient.
    Interested parties who are unable to appear on the above dates are advised to go instead next week to the Servidores de la Nación reception desk at Chapala´s Antigua Presidencia (former town hall) located on Avenida Madero next door to Banamex, open weekdays, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
    English-speakers may best stay up to date by following posts by Héctor España on the Chapala Expat Liaison Facebook page.

    My question is, what is the maximum time before it expires? I have a scheduling problem based of a forecast of world events.

    Here is what I found online, albeit it is dated 2020: 30 calendar days prior to expiry and up to 90 days after.
    ¿Cuánto tiempo tengo para renovar mi licencia después de vencida Jalisco?
    “La revalidación de la licencia de conducir se podrá solicitar a partir de los treinta (30) días calendario anteriores a la fecha de revalidación consignada en la licencia de conducir y hasta los noventa (90) días calendario posteriores a dicha fecha.Mar 6, 2020

    Not to mention the fact that while some people DID cross municipality lines it had been  specifically requested NOT to do so.  Dose allotments are made according the number of people registered in each area, so those selfish ones who ignored the request got a vaccine at a Tonala resident's expense.  Shame on you!

    Natasha, some Jalisco vaccination locations initially publicized residency requirements, yet lifted or modified them towards the end of their campaigns. Other municipalities from their first day actively invited seniors from any municipalities to be vaccinated at their site to encourage locals who were hesitant about vaccination to follow the example, and so they would not have to return unused vaccines. The public health coordinator for IMSS, Silvia Valencia Espinosa, in late February said that wherever one can get the vaccine is where one should get it. 

    Here's the headline and story from El Informador:  https://www.informador.mx/jalisco/COVID-19-acuna-a-adultos-mayores-sin-importar-residencia-20210228-0014.html

    COVID-19: Vacuna a adultos mayores, sin importar residencia

    Los tapatíos pueden acudir a otros municipios de Jalisco para recibir su dosis; sólo deben presentar la credencial del INE y su CURP

    Even Lakeside vaccine sites, during their vaccine clinics this week, relaxed initial requirements and provided vaccines to people who are from out of the area, had not previously registered on the site, are on tourist visas, or had incomplete documentation. This was authorized by the people in charge of the vaccine events, often at locations that had weak initial attendance.

    Now that the vaccine arrivals to Mexico are more frequent and greater in number, hopefully this will become a non-issue.

    I wish people would not just post about things Ajijic . Most people here don't live in Ajjic.

    This is not just for Ajijic: it consolidates this last push of vaccine for the 60+ crowd for all of Lakeside, which earlier in the week had three different vaccine locations for all our municipalities.

    And now the date and venue have changed again as of an hour ago--Parque de la Cristianía, 8 am SUNDAY, same document requirements. 

  10. Interim Presidente Municipal announces now, live, (Saturday, 9:15 pm) that the Sinovac vaccine scheduled for seniors on Monday morning in Ajijic has been RESCHEDULED.

    8:00 am tomorrow, at Parque de la Cristianía in Chapala.

    One still needs to bring a photocopy of (new) CURP, Temporal/Permanente/INE, and the federal vaccine registration confirmation (mivacuna.salud.gob.mx)

    Sr. Trejo did not say whether or not any vaccines remaining after tomorrow will be made available on Monday.

    I posted all the info you need to get vaccine in your car in Tonala. Check posts below.

    According to the Secretaría de Salud and posted on 19 March, the Tonalá event is over.

    Concluye vacunación en Tonalá con 100% de vacunas contra COVID-19 aplicadas en adultos mayores

    Se aplicaron 40,948 dosis y solo dos fueron desechadas, la mejor productividad alcanzada en estas jornadas de vacunación. En diez municipios del Estado de Jalisco, se rebasa el 70% en la aplicación de vacunas asignadas.

    Este jueves concluyó la vacunación contra COVID-19 para adultos mayores en...

    If you have info on this, please post. Any word on which areas might receive the Astrazenica from the US?

    The interim municipal president announced on Friday that vaccinations will continue for those age 60+ on Monday at 8 am in Ajijic, at the malecón, to use up the approx. 800 doses of Sinovac that remain from the allotment to our area.  

    Please have a photocopy of three documents with you: the federal vaccine registration confirmation (get at mivacuna.salud.gob.mx), your CURP, and both sides of your Temporal/Permanente/INE. Having a copy of these documents to turn in to the registrars for your paperwork greatly speeds up the registration process.

    Was there seating and shade in Ajijic or was that only in Chapala? I guess I need to know if there is any relief from standing for hours at Ajijic.

    Most of the wait time in Ajijic is spent standing on line on the water-side of the malecón. A number of people took their own folding chairs; some locals had parasols to shade them from the sun--both of which help. Once you get close (about an hour from the end of the process) to the vaccination tents that accommodate 50 people each, you are shaded. As one groups gets vaccinated and does their 30-minute post-shot wait and final registration paperwork, the other group gets vaccinated.

    There are at most 800 shots remaining, but in my experiences this week and unless more volunteers are relocated to Ajijic to speed the process, that's still several hours of waiting. This week, many people arrived hours before the posted 8 am start time to get a spot, and the cooler morning air was more pleasant than the mid-afternoon sun.

  14. Locally, we've had no car-line system for vaccinations--all have been walk-up at the designated locations. There's some 800 vaccines left in the Lakeside allotment; these will be distributed to the remaining (60+ years) eligible people starting at 8 am MONDAY at the Ajijic malecón.  

    You need to turn in copies of three documents during registration: the federal registration comprobante (mivacuna.salud.gob.mx), CURP, and front/back of temporal/permanente/INE. While you gather these copies, you might as well make another set to have ready for the second dose, in approx 28 days. Notification of dates and locations will appear on official social media.

    Wait for it...... wait for it....... NO!  According to Informador on-line newspaper from Guad, there will be NO ALPHABETICAL  lineups on   given days.

    Of course  not.... made absolutely too much sense!!!!!      Stay tuned.......... tomorrow is another day 😒

    I'm now seeing that criteria removed as well but it doesn't start till the 20th so we have plenty of time for more updates.

     Es importante recalcar que la aplicación del biológico para adultos mayores NO se realizará en orden alfabético por letra del apellido.
