Sinophorm-Pfizer vaccination program is being launched across the country from Thursday (July 1) to prevent coronavirus infection.
Shamsul Haque, director of the Expanded Program on Immunization (EPI) and member secretary of the National Covid-19 vaccine plan, said this in a health bulletin organized by the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) on Wednesday (June 30).
He said along with all medical college hospitals, all district hospitals across the country; vaccination will be held at Sadar Hospital or 250-bed hospital, Bangladesh Institute of Tropical and Infectious Diseases (BITID) in Chittagong and Syedpur Sadar Hospital every day from 8 am to 3 pm.
Shamshul Haque further said that our immunization program was going on in 48 centers inside Dhaka city, at the moment we will start the immunization program in the remaining 40 centers at the same time and in the same manner as before. Those who have not been able to register and get vaccinated at these centers can now get vaccinated.
The EPI director said registration is being introduced from today for those on the priority list. Our coronary immunization center is outside the scope of the lockdown. If someone has a vaccine card, they can go to the center by showing it. In countries where the Sinopharm vaccine is accepted, our expatriate workers can go to the center and get the vaccine. Vaccination can also be done outside Dhaka. However, vaccination cannot be taken without registration.
