On Thursday, Cuba began a vaccination campaign against the infection of the Corona virus “Covid-19” for children aged between two and 10 years, saying it was necessary to curb the spread of the mutated “delta” strain.
The hardest-hit provinces, such as Matanzas, Ciego de Avila and Cienfuegos, received support from doctors from other regions of the country as well as international donations.
Cuba has two domestic vaccines, which it says are safe and effective, and requires vaccination with three doses of each.
Over the past weeks, the government has started vaccinating people between the ages of 11 and 18.
Cuba is facing a continuous outbreak of “Covid-19”, which puts great pressure on medical facilities and exacerbates economic problems.
