In a message posted on Twitter, the head of Cuban diplomacy stressed that his country currently has an index of 321.61 doses administered per 100 inhabitants, which exceeds high-income nations.

He added that 96.7 percent of the Cuban population that can be vaccinated has a complete schedule and 80.9 percent received a booster. The country has developed its immunization strategy using mostly its own vaccines on technological platforms of proven safety and efficacy for more than 30 years.

Cuba was the first country to immunize its pediatric population against Covid-19, which allowed children and adolescents to join classrooms with greater protection.

Clinical trials with Cuban immunogens continue to stand out, one with children under two years of age and another with a nasally administered vaccine candidate.

Cuban vaccines are used in a dozen countries and the World Health Organization will soon receive the dossier of two of them for emergency use authorization.
