If other countries, such as China and Venezuela, have announced their intention to also vaccinate children against Covid-19, Cuba is the first to do so. A national vaccination campaign for children and adolescents between the ages of two and 18 opened on the island on Friday, September 3.

This campaign initially concerns adolescents aged 12 and over, before being extended to children aged two to 11 from September 15.

The Communist government has made the vaccination of children a condition of the reopening of schools. These have been closed since March 2020 and only reopened briefly, for a few weeks, at the end of the year, before closing again in January. Schoolchildren and students must since follow the lessons via television, and will have to do it again from Monday, the day of the return to Cuba. Once the campaign is over, the government plans to reopen the establishments on a phased basis in October and November.

This campaign will be carried out with Cuban vaccines Abdala and Soberana. In the evening, the Medicines Regulatory Agency (Cecmed) announced that it had given authorization for the emergency use of the Soberana 2 vaccine, one of the vaccines used in this campaign, for children and adolescents aged two to 18 years old. The composition of Cuban vaccines, which are not recognized by the WHO, is based on a recombinant protein, the same technique used by the American company Novavax.

The island of 11.2 million inhabitants has accumulated 672,599 cases, including 5,538 deaths. By early August, 95,100 Cuban minors had contracted the Covid and seven died from it.
