Minister of Health: Opening youth centers for registration and vaccination against Corona .. next Sunday


The Minister of Health, Dr. Hala Zayed, said that the African continent is witnessing the beginning of the fourth wave of the Corona virus, including Egypt, and most countries of the world are witnessing the confinement of the fourth wave, noting that only 2% of the world’s vaccines have reached the continent of Africa.

He added, during an intervention with the media, Amr Adib, during the “Al-Hekaya” program, which is broadcast on the “mbc Egypt” channel: “Vaccines are important, they may not protect against infection by 100%, but they protect against complications from infection with the Corona virus, the United States of America has more than 120 There are 150,000 injuries per day, which is the most infected in the world, but the deaths have decreased significantly in those countries, and herein lies the importance of vaccines.”

She added: “During the past week, we increased the vaccination centers from 650 to 850 centers, in addition to paying street buses to urge citizens to get vaccinations. This is starting from Sunday, and we thank the Minister of Sports and the governors for facilitating this matter, and we have zero waiting in terms of vaccination for travel.”

He said, “Egypt is one of the few countries in the world that includes all types of vaccines in the global market, and within a few days we will have Pfizer and Moderna vaccines, in large quantities, and we are talking about 5.2 million doses.”

And she continued: “A few minutes ago, I finished a meeting with the leaders of the ministry and the directors of 500 hospitals, and we were talking about crisis management in hospitals and vaccines, and the extent of people’s response to them. Regarding the delay in the message about the vaccine, this was logical because the priority was for the elderly, the chronically ill, tourism employees and some sectors, and now that there is an abundance of vaccines, the messages arrive quickly.”

She said: “Those who registered 16 million citizens, including 3.2 during this month only, which is the most month that witnessed registration for obtaining the vaccine, and we do not have any existing doses that have not been obtained, and all the doses that have reached us from imports and friendly countries we pay to the vaccine centers, During this week, we paid 5 and a half million doses.”
