Currently available at Sadat metro station, citizens will be able to receive their first dose at these units simply by presenting their national ID, and schedule their second dose in the meanwhile.
So you're about to rush into the Cairo Metro when you suddenly stop and realise that you didn't get your COVID-19 vaccine shots yet. "Oh no," you tell yourself. "I should do the responsible thing and leave immediately in order to limit the spread of this notoriously viral illness." But as you're about to climb up the steps, you see a big blue box, seemingly created just for you: a vaccination unit set up by the Ministry of Health and Population.
Currently available at the Sadat metro station, the Cairo Metro company has announced that 20 more vaccination units just like this one will be established in 14 other underground stations across the capital to help combat COVID-19, including Helwan, Attaba and Gamal Abdel Nasser stations. Citizens will be able to receive their first dose at these units simply by presenting their national ID, and schedule their second dose in the meanwhile.
As part of the Ministry of Health and Population's mission to vaccinate 40% of the population by the end of 2021, the ministry will continue to set up more of these units by courts, train stations and traffic directorates.
