BAGHDAD - In a health center of Medical City, Iraq's largest medical complex, medical staff members gathered Tuesday to register for COVID-19 vaccination with the Sinopharm vaccine donated by China.

"We are very optimistic about the vaccination program, and we started the vaccination of some 40 medics in more than an hour of the first day," Safaa al-Din Kareem, a nurse vaccinating the health workers at the scene, told Xinhua.

Iraq kicked off its national vaccination on Tuesday by administering the China-donated vaccines to Iraqi frontline health workers.

The Chinese vaccines, Kareem said, are like a lifesaving guard for the medical staff as they "came at the right time because we need it at this critical time with the increase of the coronavirus infections, especially after the detection of the new strain of coronavirus."

Iraqi health workers have expressed their gratitude for the donation, especially as they combat the pandemic on the front line, with infection risks every working day.

Asraa Abbas, a nurse in her 30s, said she felt very happy after receiving a shot, because everyone in hospitals was put in constant danger.

"The Chinese vaccine not only came to save me, it came to save my whole family," she said, adding that all citizens should take the vaccine, and still, they should follow health protective measures and keep social distancing.

Iraqi Minister of Health Hassan al-Tamimi said Tuesday that the vaccination began in Baghdad, while the vaccines were delivered to all Iraqi provinces, including the semi-autonomous region of Kurdistan, hours after the vaccines arrived from China.

Sayf al-Haidari, a supervisor of the vaccination program, told Xinhua that China's Sinopharm vaccine has proven successful.

"The Chinese vaccine is one of the vaccines that have been tried in many countries, including the Arabic countries, and have proven successful," al-Haidari said. "The preliminary results of this vaccine indicated that its success rate is good and high, and other contracts are to be concluded to bring other batches of this vaccine."

巴格达——周二,在伊拉克最大的医疗中心医疗城的一个卫生中心,医务人员聚集在一起,用中国捐赠的国药疫苗为新冠肺炎接种疫苗。


“我们对疫苗接种计划非常乐观,我们在第一天的一个多小时内开始为大约40名医务人员接种疫苗,”在现场为卫生工作者接种疫苗的护士Safaa al-Din Kareem告诉新华社。


伊拉克周二开始全国疫苗接种,向伊拉克前线卫生工作者提供中国捐赠的疫苗。


卡里姆说,中国疫苗就像是医务人员的救生警卫,因为它们“来得正是时候,因为我们在冠状病毒感染增加的关键时刻需要它,特别是在检测到新的冠状病毒株之后。”


伊拉克卫生工作者对捐赠表示感谢,尤其是当他们在第一线抗击大流行时,每个工作日都有感染风险。


30多岁的护士阿斯拉·阿巴斯(Asraa Abbas)说,她在接受注射后感到非常高兴,因为医院里的每个人都处于持续的危险之中。


“中国疫苗不仅是为了拯救我,也是为了拯救我的整个家庭,”她说,并补充说,所有公民都应该接种疫苗,而且他们应该遵循健康保护措施,保持社会距离。


伊拉克卫生部长哈桑·塔米米星期二说,疫苗接种从巴格达开始,在疫苗从中国抵达几小时后,疫苗就被运送到伊拉克所有省份,包括半自治的库尔德斯坦地区。


疫苗接种项目的负责人赛义夫·阿尔·海达里告诉新华社,中国国药集团的疫苗已被证明是成功的。


“中国疫苗是已经在包括阿拉伯国家在内的许多国家尝试过的疫苗之一,并且证明是成功的,”阿尔-海达里说。“这种疫苗的初步结果表明,它的成功率很高,还将签订其他合同,带来其他批次的这种疫苗。”

Mohammed Kamil of the Iraqi Ministry of Health praised China for the COVID-19 vaccines with affordability and accessibility.

"China's donation initiative to Iraq was fast and effective, although China needs large quantities of vaccines for its own population," Kamil said, referring to China's efforts to make COVID-19 vaccines global public goods.

"It is not about the vaccine only. In the past months since the outbreak of the pandemic, China has built a PCR (Polymerase Chain Reaction) laboratory," Kamil said. "This cooperation is very good, and is a goodwill gesture that shows China's desire to help Iraq to overcome this crisis."

伊拉克卫生部的默罕默德·卡米尔称赞中国的新冠肺炎疫苗价格低廉且容易获得。


卡米尔说:“中国对伊拉克的捐赠行动迅速有效,尽管中国需要大量疫苗来满足本国人口的需求。”他指的是中国为使新冠肺炎疫苗成为全球公益所做的努力。


“这不仅仅是疫苗的问题。在大流行爆发后的过去几个月里,中国建立了一个聚合酶链反应实验室,”卡米尔说。“这种合作非常好,是一种善意的姿态,表明中国希望帮助伊拉克克服这场危机。”
