The president of BioCubaFarma, Eduardo Martínez, announced that Cuba is developing vaccines specifically against the Omicron strain of the virus.

According to MINSAP, 10,169,492 people received a dose of Cuban vaccines, while 9,216,229 have already been vaccinated with the second dose and 8,719,662 with the third.

9,217,347 citizens have already been vaccinated with the complete scheme, representing 82.4 percent of the Cuban population, the source said.

The Director of Scientific Policy of the Group of Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Industries (BioCubaFarma), Rolando Pérez, explained that domestic vaccines have a scheme consisting of three injections.

A booster will not only increase the number of memory cells, but also their quality, and “we will be promoting antibodies with a better neutralizing capacity,” he stressed.

The application of booster doses was approved by 27 countries, 12 of them in Latin America, with various vaccines being able to be combined in the process.
