Egypt to produce 2m doses of Sinovac Covid-19 vaccine

Egypt on Friday received the first batch of components to locally produce 2 million doses of China’s Sinovac Covid-19 vaccine.

The country is expected to manufacture 40 million Sinovac doses in the first year of production, health authorities said.

As part of Egypt’s efforts to ramp up vaccination, the delivery to Cairo also included 500,000 ready-to-use doses of Sinopharm.

The health minister said that 2 million doses of Sinovac will be delivered to vaccination centers across Egypt within a two-month period.
