Vaccinating children is important, Maria Elena Soto, head of the National Department of Primary Health Care, said during a recent speech, in which she stressed that the vaccine will not be administrated now to children who suffer from an acute infectious disease. They would be vaccinated later.
Soto explained that children receiving steroid treatments will have to wait to reduce its doses in blood before being vaccinated. Those who had an allergic reaction to thimerosal will be immunized later.
The national children’s vaccination campaign against Covid-19 started on September 5 in central Cienfuegos province and Isla de la Juventud special municipality.
