This milestone was achieved by Cuba with the help of their home-grown vaccinations which are not recognized by WHO.

This groundbreaking step was taken by the local government of the communist island to make sure that most of the children are vaccinated before the start of the school year.

The new school year in Cuba kicked off on Monday, as most of the Cuban homes do not have access to the internet. This leads to home tuition via television programs.


With the clinical trials of the Abdala and Soberana vaccines, Cuba started off the vaccine campaign for toddlers with the doses first administered on children starting with the ages of 12 or younger.

Several other countries also plan on vaccinating their minor masses, with some of them conducting successful trials on younger kids but Cuba is the first one on the list to do so.


The other countries that have been planning these jabs for younger kids are China, UAE, and Venezuela.

Abdala and Soberana; the vaccines that were first developed in Latin America, are yet to gain the approval of WHO. These Cuban home vaccines are recombinant vaccines and do not require extreme refrigeration.

The school season will commence gradually in Cuba after all children are successfully vaccinated.
