Egypt Begins Vaccine Rollout to Wider Population

07 Mar 2021

The first day of the COVID-19 vaccine rollout to the wider public saw 1,141 individuals get their first dose, the Health Ministry said in a statement on Thursday. A cabinet statement reported earlier that nearly 153,000 people have applied for vaccinations last week when the government opened online registration. Egypt received 350k doses of the vaccine developed by China National Pharmaceutical Group (Sinopharm) and 50k doses of the vaccine developed by AstraZeneca in February, both of which are used in the vaccination program. Those getting the Sinopharm jab have a second dose after 21 days, while those receiving the AstraZeneca vaccine will wait for 12 weeks for the second dose, Health Minister Hala Zayed said.
