This Friday, September 3rd, the National Academy of Medicine (ANM) warned that Venezuela does not have suitable vaccines to immunize minors, as Nicolás Maduro’s regime plans to do.
“There is no anti-Covid vaccine authorized by any serious regulatory body for children under 12 years old,” said the Academy in response to the announcement made by the dictatorship about vaccinating minors from 3 years of age.
Furthermore, the ANM indicated that the only vaccines approved from the age of 12 and above are Pfizer-Biontech and Moderna, which must be frozen between -50 and -80 degrees Celsius, a type of cold chain with which DOES NOT EXIST in Venezuela.
Finally, they ratified that the return to classes must be safe, for which some premises must be met:
Vaccinate all teachers, employees and workers of educational institutions
Vaccinate students with approved biologicals according to international regulations
Have operational toilets, which must include permanent soap and running water
Have alcohol-gel for hand hygiene at different points of the campuses
Provide new masks to all attendees at the campuses, daily
Reduce the capacity in classrooms with partial attendance hours
The groups of students that is their turn to remain at home must have quality computer equipment and Internet access, as well as comply with this premise for all teachers
