CAIRO – 8 March 2021: A total of 400,000 citizens have registered to reserve the Coronavirus vaccines since the launch of the website last week, announced Minister of Health Hala Zayed.


Egyptian senior citizens, aged above 40 years old, started registering for anti-Coronavirus vaccine online last Sunday.


This comes as part of the state's plan to address the Coronavirus pandemic and focus on the public health of citizens.


A total of 1,141 citizens have received the first coronavirus vaccine dose on Thursday, the first day of the vaccination campaign targeting the elderly and those suffering from chronic diseases.


Vaccine Registration  


The registration to get the vaccine is done either online (http://mohpegypt.com) or at certain health facilities. Afterwards, citizens get informed about the time and place where they will receive the vaccine.


The Ministry of Health put certain criteria during the registration process on the website, asking citizens to provide 3 medical reports to determine their health status, and then the website automatically determines priority regarding receiving the vaccine. Then, a text message will be sent to citizens on when and where they could receive the vaccine.


The eligible citizens have to take two shots of the vaccine (21 days apart) at a cost of LE 200 (US$ 12.73) per shot.


A number of centers were assigned in some governorates to receive the citizens to be vaccinated. There are three centers have been allocated in Cairo Governorate, four centers in Giza Governorate, three centers in Alexandria Governorate and two centers were designated in Qalyubia Governorate


Two other centers have been designated to receive vaccinations in Beheira Governorate, four centers in Assiut Governorate, and two centers in New Valley Governorate.
