During the 25 days that lasted the clinical trial, the president emphasized that no serious adverse events have been reported.


"History is being made in Cuba," the dignitary emphasized on his social network.


Recently, Dr. Vicente Vérez Bencomo, director of the Finlay Vaccine Institute, explained that anti-Covid-19 conjugated immunogens such as Soberana 02 and Soberana Plus were always intended for children in the Caribbean nation.


The expert pointed out that this technological platform ratified the proven efficacy of other injectables, hence the safety of the application of these drugs in children under 19 years of age.


Cuba became the first country in the world to carry out a massive vaccination campaign in the pediatric population.


On the other hand, specialists on the island agreed on that in coming weeks the behavior of the pandemic will tend towards control, as a result of the vaccination process developed with national immunogens and other factors. (Source: Prensa Latina)
