Mexico Approves Cuba’s Three-dose Abdala Coronavirus Vaccine

According to press reports, Mexico’s health safety council has approved the use of Cuba’s three-dose Abdala coronavirus vaccine.

The council reportedly said that there is sufficient evidence that warrants the vaccine’s safety and effectiveness.

However, the approval for emergency use does not necessarily mean that the Mexican government, currently the country’s only purchaser of vaccines, will acquire or administer Abdala in Mexico.

Mexico has approved ten vaccines for use but has made little use of some, like China’s Sinopharm.

Cuba has approved Abdala for use domestically and begun commercial exports of the three-dose vaccine to Vietnam and Venezuela.
