Egypt to receive over 525K doses of Johnson vaccine

The Egyptian Authority for Unified Procurement, Supply, Medical Supply and Medical Technology Administration (UPA), announced that the second batch of 525,600 doses of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine will arrive Saturday evening.

The authority confirmed that this comes to expand the nation’s provision of COVID-19 vaccines and provide a special vaccine for those wishing to travel and all citizens.

Egypt received 261,600 doses of Johnson & Johnson vaccine on August 9, in cooperation with the African Union.

Egypt’s Health and Population Ministry announced in August the availability of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in the 126 offices and international vaccination centers affiliated with the ministry throughout the country to vaccinate travelers abroad.

The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is a single dose without a booster dose, it noted, and that vaccination certificates are provided for the purposes of traveling abroad with a QR code system in 126 centers across the country.

Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine is a viral vector vaccine, it explained, operating through the same method as AstraZeneca and Sputnik. It has a 66 percent efficiency and protects against symptoms in general.
