The Egyptian Minister of Health, Hala Zayed, announced that it had received 854,400 doses of the “AstraZeneca” anti-corona virus vaccine, at Cairo Airport.
This batch of vaccines is the largest to reach Egypt and the Middle East from the GAVI International Alliance for Serums and Vaccines.
This batch arrived within the “Kovacs” agreement in cooperation with GAVI, the World Health Organization, the “UNICEF” and the World Bank.
Thus, about one million and 600 thousand vaccine doses have reached Egypt, between the Chinese “Sinopharm” and the British-Swedish “AstraZeneca”.
AstraZeneca recipients will receive a second dose 3 months after receiving the first dose.
