At a press conference on television, Dr. Maria Elena Soto Entenza, head of the Department of Primary Health Care at the Ministry of Public Health (MINSAP) informed that those citizens who have received one or two doses of the Abdala vaccine have to wait 26 days between shots to complete their vaccination program.
Dr. Soto Entenza said that, in the case of Soberana 02 and Soberana Plus, they have to wait up to three months betwen the first and second shot, and up to six months between the second and third dose.
She also ratified that people who got infected two or over two months ago will be administered a single shot of Soberana Plus, produced by the Finlay Vaccine Institute (IFV), and that they have the necessary amount of that vaccine to protect the entire population group.
She spoke about the vaccination with the first dose of Soberana 02, also produced by IFV, of students in senior years of preuniversity and technical and vocational education who started their school year on Monday, a process which will continue this month with the second shot and will end in November.
The group made up of children from two to ten years of age is currently undergoing the same process, and those people who were not able to get vaccinated within schedule will be immunized this week.
The MINSAP expert recalled that the clinical trial with Soberana Plus in convalescent minors from 2 to 18 years of age will start on Tuesday at the Juan Manuel Marquez Pediatric Hospital in this capital and, if the results are positive, the regulatory institution will approve its extension to all that population group.
