Egyptians can register for COVID-19 vaccine next Sunday
Published in Amwal Al Ghad on 24 - 02 - 2021

Egyptians over the age of 40 and / or those with chronic illnesses will be able to register to receive the covid-19 vaccine online as of next Sunday, 28 February, Health Minister Hala Zayed said.
She added at a press conference following the arrival of a 300k shipment of China's Sinopharm vaccine in the early hours of Tuesday that people who register on the website will receive an SMS with details of the vaccination appointment, Zayed said in an online press conference on Tuesday.
They can also go to their nearest hospital to register for vaccination, she added.
Applicants will be required to submit three medical reports to determine their medical history, which the platform will use to determine their priority level and automatically schedule appointments accordingly.
The ministry will only inoculate as many people as it can ensure will have access to the second dose, meaning that the vaccination process for the wider population will take longer but will be efficient, Zayed said
The Health Ministry reported 633 new covid-19 infections yesterday, up from 623 the day before. Egypt has now disclosed a total of 179,704 confirmed cases of covid-19. The ministry also reported 39 new deaths, bringing the country's total death toll to 10,443.
