Rajshahi Civil Surgeon’s Office on Wednesday served separate show cause notices to two upazila health and family planning officers over irregularities in Covid vaccination in their respective areas.

They are Dr Golam Rabbani of Bagmara upazila and Dr Barnabas Hasda of Tanore.

Dr Rabbani was asked to explain why Rajshahi-4 lawmaker Enamul Haque had administered Covid vaccine to an elderly in presence of the health official on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Dr Hasda was issued the notice after a photo of Tanore Upazila Parishad Chairman Lutfar Haider Rashid Moyna being vaccinated at his home on Tuesday went viral.

District Civil Surgeon Dr Kaiyum Talukder said: “The two officials have been asked to clarify the incidents. I am not at liberty to say anything else right now.”

Divisional Health Office Director Dr Habibul Ahsan Talukder said the next course of action would be decided after reviewing their written explanations.

Asked about the matter, Dr Hasda said: “I have talked with the civil surgeon… He has sent a [show cause] letter to my office, but I have yet to open it since I am currently staying in Dhaka.”

Dr Rabbani refused to comment on the matter.
