Migrant workers are protesting for Pfizer and Moderna jabs at Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College Hospital in Dhaka Bangla Tribune

They want Pfizer or Moderna jabs instead of Sinopharm shots

Migrant workers demonstrated at the vaccination centre at Dhaka’s Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College Hospital on Saturday over coronavirus vaccine jabs.

The demonstrators, who had blocked the street in front of the hospital, demanded for either Pfizer or Moderna jabs as they claimed Sinopharm vaccines were not recognized by the Saudi Arabian authorities

The protestors said that after receiving the mobile phone message for receiving the shots, they came to the hospital only to see there was no Pfizer or Moderna vaccine left. Only the Sinopharm vaccine was available.

One of the expatriates said: “My visa will expire soon, what do we do now? We spent a lot of money and came from the village for vaccination.”

Police officers and five protestors discussed the matter with the director of the hospital for an hour. 

Hospital Director Dr Md Khalilur Rahman said that they do not have Pfizer or Moderna vaccines at the moment. “That’s why we are using Sinopharm vaccines to vaccinate people.”

“We only have the Moderna vaccine for the second dose vaccination,” he added.
