"#Soberana01, #Soberana02, #SoberanaPlus, #Abdala and #Mambisa. The Strength of One Country: more protected, more immune, happier. Let's join this effort by complying with the #COVID19 health measures."
Although a series of countries have shown interest in acquiring Cuban COVID-19 vaccines and countries such as Iran are participating in phase 3 of clinical trials of the front-runner SBERANA 02, authorities remarked that immunizing the population is a priority.
The Cuban Biopharmaceutical industry has more than five decades of experience manufacturing vaccines and innovative, worldwide-renowned products. In this sense, Martínez said that all technological facilities to produce the COVID-19 vaccines are ready.
