Abdala is one of the five formulas against SARS-CoV-2 being investigated in Cuba and is a subunit vaccine based on the receptor-binding site (RBD) of the virus protein S.

According to those in charge, it has an application schedule of three doses administered 14 days apart.

This news was celebrated by President Miguel Díaz-Canel, who highlighted the work of the team in charge of developing the antigen and met with them to congratulate them in person together with the team of the Government’s temporary work group for the prevention and control of COVID -19.

Cuba began developing its own vaccines against SARS-CoV-2 when the first cases of infected were just registered in its territory, explaining that it was not in a position to compete with other countries for the importation of medicines.

Now, the Cuban government hopes to ask the local regulatory authority for permission for the emergency use of the vaccines and receive official approval in late June or early July.

You will then need to send the information to the World Health Organization (WHO) for eventual authorization and use abroad.
