Students must register through the Surokkha app or website

Health authorities in Bangladesh are all set to start administering Pfizer and Sinopharm vaccines from next week, Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) Director General Dr ABM Khurshid Alam has said.

The DGHS DG disclosed the information while speaking to reporters after a sudden visit to the Infectious Diseases Hospital at Mohakhali in Dhaka on Monday.

“Although the date is yet to be fixed, we will start administering the Pfizer and Sinopharm vaccines from next week,” he said.

People who have already registered for Covid-19 vaccines will receive the vaccines, and they will receive texts from the health authorities informing them when to get vaccinated, the DGHS chief added.

When asked about the resumption of the vaccine registration process, Khurshid Alam said: “It will resume once we receive the next consignment of purchased vaccines.”

He further said that all students would have to register through the Surokkha app or website for the nationwide vaccination campaign.
