Anticovid-19 booster doses will be applied to tourism workers.

As part of the vaccination of risk groups in the country, before the end of the year, tourism workers will be given a booster dose of Cuban anti-Covid-19 immunogens, which will allow them to continue raising their immune level.

Although it has not yet been reported which of the Cuban vaccines will be used for that purpose, in a recent press conference the president of the Biotechnology and Pharmaceutical Industries Group (BioCubaFarma), Eduardo Martínez, specified that the proposals will be Soberana Plus, Soberana 01, Abdala and Mambisa.

Martínez asserted that the process could begin next November with the first vaccinated in Cuba against Covid-19, who belong to the Health and biopharmaceutical sector, as well as participants in clinical trials, which include men and women  of the leisure industry.

Those employed in Varadero facilities were subjected to the Abdala clinical trial, which was an important step in the immunization of personnel vulnerable to the contagion of COVID-19, due to the place they occupy in the provision of services in a essential sector in the economic structure of the country.

With the new immunization proposal, managers and employees of the important sector will be more protected in their jobs and thus will also take care of the health of their family and the inhabitants of the community where they reside.

The increase in the occupational capacity of the hotels in operation to date in Varadero and the entry into operations of others, produced a demand for force that significantly increased the reincorporation to work positions, with which the reinforcement dose becomes more relevant anti Covid-19.

Currently, hotels and non-hotel facilities in Varadero are getting ready for the de-escalation of Cuban tourism and the reopening of the borders planned for the coming November 15th, date that coincides with the start of the winter season, a period from November to April where the Island receives its greater flows of foreign visitors.
