Camaguey authorities prioritize vaccination of vulnerable people

Camaguey, Cuba, Aug 2 (Prensa Latina) The health intervention with the Cuban-made Abdala vaccine against Covid-19, which reached over 2,500 pregnant women, in addition to senior citizens, is currently advancing among vulnerable groups in this region.

According to statistics from public health authorities in Camaguey province, located 540 kilometers east of Havana, some 17 percent of nursing and postpartum mothers have already received the first dose of the vaccine, which has a 92.28-percent efficacy, according to scientific trials.

Likewise, the health intervention, which began in the province on June 28, involved over 36,000 people with the third dose of the Abdala vaccine, which shows the ongoing progress of the process in five municipalities of the territory.

In turn, a little more than 200 elderly persons in different social care centers also completed their vaccination cycle this weekend.

Camaguey province, deemed by the Ministry of Public Health as a risk territory, continues the pediatric clinical trials with the Abdala vaccine against Covid-19, actions that are extended in two initial phases to about 600 minors aged 12-18.

In order to complement the healthcare work, the University of Camaguey stands out with the use of software to digitalize the data from the health intervention against Covid-19, which continues successfully in Cuba’s third most populated city.
