Cuba decided to step up the current health intervention with the anti-COVID-19 Abdala vaccine candidate in Havana, said Minister of Public Health, José Angel Portal.
The decision was annouced in a meeting led by Prime Minister, Manuel Marrero, and attended by leaders of the Government and the Communist Party in the province. In this meeting it was explained that Havana is the most at-risk territory due to the complexity of the current epidemiological situation.
According to Dr. Portal by the end of July, all persons over 18 years of age, who are not prevented from being vaccinated at this time, should have completed the three-dose schedule designed for Abdala vaccine candidate.
However, the Prime Minister warned that this action cannot lead to a decrease in risk perception and compliance with the hygienic-sanitary provisions.
