Reinforcement vaccination in Cuba is being carried out in a phased manner, which prioritizes the most vulnerable population groups. The process started with health and BioCubaFarma professionals. Subsequently, it continued with tourism workers, border patrol agents, and citizens with co-morbidities and finally comprised the rest of the population.
