On Monday, Cuba began inoculating children as young as 2 years old with vaccines that have not been recognised by the World Health Organisation.
According to the VOA, the goal of the campaign is to vaccinate at least 90% of the population. About half of the Cuban population has had one shot and about a third has had two shots.
Cuba has recorded an average of about 7,000 new cases a day over the past 7 days with a population of more than 11-million, it has one of the highest coronavirus rates in the world.
The country is eager to get its children back in the classroom and most Cuban homes do not have internet access.
