According to MINSAP, 10,592,857 citizens have received at least one dose of the home-grown vaccines, while 9,362,784 have already administered a second dose and 9,038,896 a third dose.

A total of 9,860,083 Cubans have received the complete vaccination scheme against Covid-19, accounting for 89.0 percent of the country’s population, the source stated.

Cuba is currently accelerating the administration of Covid-19 booster doses, which will not only increase the number of memory cells, but with higher quality, and thus developing antibodies with better neutralizing capacity.

The Cuban vaccines are safe and without serious side effects, this strategy will be staggered and its aim is to achieve greater protection against new Covid-19 variants.
