A Covid-19 vaccination campaign will begin on September 28 on the occasion of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s 75th birthday.
Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) director general Professor Dr ABM Khurshid Alam said this on Sunday.
“We are not calling this a mass vaccination though we will vaccinate people massively. But we will give the vaccine in a large scale. About 2 crore people will be vaccinated every month including one crore through the campaign,” said the DGHS director general.
“We have adequate stock of vaccines in our hands. We have confirmed the source of the required vaccine in the coming days.”
Earlier, DGHS had arranged two mass vaccination campaigns in the country. However, this time it has been organized a vaccination campaign on the birthday of the prime minister. A target has been set to provide 80 lakh doses of vaccine on that day.
