Mass vaccination to resume by July

The mass inoculation of corona virus disease is expected to be resumed in July, Prime Minister’s Principal Secretary Dr Ahmad Kaikaus said.

In a press conference at the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) on Thursday,  Kaikaus said ‘’We are maintaining communications and already talked with a few countries. Now, we are expecting to get vaccine soon.’’

In addition, the government is also trying to produce vaccines in the country, he added.

Mentioning that a total of Taka 14,000 crore has been allocated to collect vaccine, the Principal Secretary said Bangladesh doesn’t want any favour from anyone rather it will buy it as Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina always insists that “we don’t need any free vaccine, we will buy vaccine”.

Replying to a query, he said the government from the very first day has been working rigorously for souring vaccines. “Our high commissioners and ambassadors have been communicating with the USA, the UK, European countries, China and others countries continuously to this end,” he added.

PMO Secretary Md Tofazzel Hossain Miah, Project Director Md Mahbub Hossain and PMO’s Director General (Administration) Mohd. Ahsan Kibria Siddiqui were present.
