Argentina's health minister Gines Gonzalez Garcia resigned on Friday following reports that people had been able to use connections to get access to Covid-19 vaccines to which they were not entitled.

He said in a letter to Argentine President Alberto Fernandez that individuals were able to sidestep the vaccination procedure due to "unintended confusion" in his office while he was away.
