Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla, the Cuban Foreign Minister, posted on his Twitter account that the country has an index of 321.61 doses administered per 100 inhabitants - an amount that exceeds high-income countries.
The Cuban top official said, in addition, that the Island's population that is capable of receiving the vaccine against COVID-19 has been inoculated with the complete scheme and the 80.9 percent received a booster.
The immunization strategy of the Caribbean country is based on the usage of its vaccines on technological platforms of proven safety and efficacy. Cuba is registered as the first country to immunize its pediatric population against Covid-19.
