Havana - Cuba celebrates the Day of Latin American Medicine with the inauguration of a plant to create vaccines in the scientific pole of this capital.

Several types of new biological researchers, such as the antimeningococcic hyperimmune vaccine and one against thyroid fever, will be elaborated in the center, associated to Finlay Institute.

On the other hand, Delys Reyes, member of the National Secretariat of Health Workers, told media to mark the date workshops will be developed all around the country and distinctions will be awarded to outstanding professionals.

The national main ceremony will take place at Havana´s Conventions Palace.
