The Cuban government sent this Friday to Nicaragua another load of anti-Covid-19 vaccine, Soberana 02, to complete in that country the necessary doses for child immunization, the Finlay Institute informed.

In a tweet, the entity stated that Cuba has already shown a significant reduction in the incidence of COVID-19 in the 2 to 18 years age group, thanks to the vaccination campaign developed in our country with its products Soberana 02 and Soberana Plus.

In that Central American nation, the national vaccination campaign in pediatric ages against the disease began last October 25 and extended to the population from 2 to 17 years of age.

For this purpose, Cuba had already sent the first shipment of 1,200,000 doses of its vaccines against covid-19, Soberana 02, and Abdala, the latter belonging to the Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology.

Both immunizers were approved for emergency use by the Health Regulation Authority of the Nicaraguan Ministry of Health.

This country thus joined other nations such as Iran, Venezuela, and Vietnam, where vaccines created by Cuban scientific institutions are already being administered to their populations to combat the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.
