Egypt to intensify vaccination ahead of a fourth COVID-19 wave




Egypt will vaccinate all 4.5 million of its state employees against COVID-19 in August and September
as it seeks to accelerate vaccinations ahead of a likely fourth wave of infections, the health minister
said on Monday (Aug 23).


The country's infection rate is still low but started to increase last week and the upward curve is
expected to continue for a while, Hala Zayed told a briefing, adding that a significant increase is
expected in late September.

"It is important for the Egyptian government and the political leadership that we work to intensify
vaccinations in the coming period," Zayed said.


As part of the programme, all workers in pre-university education, university employees and university
students - a total of more than 5 million people - will be vaccinated before the start of the academic
year in October, she said.


So far, about 10 million people have registered online to get vaccinated and nearly 7.5 million have
received at least one dose, Zayed said.


The prime minister said in June the government aimed to vaccinate 40% of the population of more
than 100 million by the end of this year.


Egypt has received millions of doses of COVID-19 vaccines produced by AstraZeneca, Sinopharm,
Sinovac, Sputnik, and Johnson & Johnson.


It has also produced 15 million doses of Sinovac's vaccine locally, Zayed said, and will receive about
5.2 million doses produced by Pfizer and Moderna in September.


The Egyptian Drug Authority on Monday approved an emergency use licence for the locally produced

VACSERA-Sinovac vaccines, it said in a statement.
