Cairo – Mubasher: Egypt is expected to produce the first two million doses of China’s Sinovac vaccine against coronavirus (COVID-19) by the end of June, the Minister of Health, Hala Zayed, said, according to the Middle East News Agency (MENA).

The first shipment of the raw materials needed for manufacturing the vaccine will arrive on 18 May, Zayed added in a press conference on Sunday.

A total of 40 million doses are expected to be produced by the beginning of 2022.

In April, the Egyptian Holding Company for Biopharmaceuticals and Vaccines (Vacsera) signed two agreements with China’s Sinovac Life Sciences Company to manufacture the Chinese vaccine in Egypt.
