Egyptian Government Makes Anti-Coronavirus Vaccines For Children: Prime Minister



Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly announced Monday that the government will manufacture coronavirus vaccines for children, which will be included as part of the mandatory vaccinations for children in Egypt.

During a routine inspection of coronavirus vaccine production lines at VACSERA, Madbouly added that children’s vaccine production will begin at the VACSERA factory in town on October 6th.

The Egyptian Ministry of Health and Population announced on Wednesday that as of August, 15 million doses of the Sinovac-VACSERA vaccine will be produced locally per month.

The ministry stated that it intends to produce 40 million doses of the vaccine by the end of this year.

The ministry said that 300,000 cans have been produced out of a total of 2.25 million cans to be produced in the first phase.

Two production lines are put into operation – the first with a capacity of 300,000 per shift and the second with a production capacity of three million cans per year.

The production capacity will gradually increase to one billion cans annually. The ministry noted that Egypt is qualifying the factory with experts from India and China for export to Africa and the region.

VACSERA’s factory in al-Agouza has been rehabilitated with a production capacity of 300,000 cans per shift and an annual production capacity of 110 to 220 million cans.
