Dr. Alaa Eid added, through a telephone conversation with the journalist Amr Abdel Hamid, on the “Public Opinion” program broadcast on Channel Ten, that 30,000 citizens have received the vaccine during the last period, and we are targeting 250,000 citizens this week.
He explained that with the arrival of the shipments, we will expand more than 5,000 units to vaccinate a larger number of citizens, noting that the Ministry provides the amount of special vaccines to vaccinate pilgrims during the Hajj season.
Eid pointed out that there was an agreement on joint cooperation regarding the manufacture of the vaccine between Egypt and China. The protocol includes an agreement to manufacture the Sinopharma vaccine in the Egyptian company Vacera and also prepare to buy a second package of Sinopharma vaccine within a week.
And the head of Preventive Medicine at the Ministry of Health said that laxity in following preventive measures is behind the recent rise in Corona virus infections, especially in the governorates.
The Head of Preventive Medicine at the Ministry of Health stated that awareness campaigns must be conducted that appeal to the importance of the Coronavirus vaccine, and to obtain it.
