    Egyptian Health Minister Hala Zayed said on Sunday that Egypt will start locally producing China’s Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine in June. The minister said during a press conference in Cairo that the first 2 million doses will be produced in June at the plants of the Egyptian Holding Company for Biological Products and Vaccines (VACSERA). Zayed noted that two agreements were signed between Sinovac and the VACSERA in April, with the first one enabling the Egyptian side to obtain the expertise and technical assistance to produce the vaccine, while the second gives the VACSERA the license to manufacture and pack the vaccine in its factories. The Sinovac vaccine to be produced in Egypt will be dubbed Sinovac-Vacsera, the minister revealed.
