Cuba has developed world’s first conjugate COVID 19 vaccine Soberana 2.

Cuba has said its homegrown Covid-19 vaccine Soberana 2 (Sovereign 2), when delivered with a booster shot of Soberana Plus, is about 91 per cent effective against symptomatic Covid-19 cases as demonstrated in its late stage clinical trials.

Soon after the results were announced, Cuban President Miguel Díaz-Canel thanked the island nation’s scientists for working on the vaccine. If approved, Cuba will become the first Latin American country to manufacture and produce a vaccine against Covid-19.

In total, the Soberana 2 is delivered through a three dose regimen. Two shots of Soberana 2 and one of Soberana Plus, when taken in a 0-28-56 day regimen, have an efficacy of 91.2 percent, the Cuban government’s Covid-19 task force announced.
