Khaleda receives second dose of COVID-19 vaccine
BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia received the second dose of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine, 30 days after taking the first one.
She took the vaccine shot at Sheikh Russel Gastroliver Institute and Hospital in the city’s Mohakhali area around 4:15 pm, reports UNB.
Like the first dose, the BNP chief was given the second shot in her vehicle amid the gathering of BNP leaders and activists.
Earlier on July 19, Khaleda took the first dose of Moderna COVID-19 vaccine at the same hospital.
She registered online through the Surokkha app for getting the vaccine on July 8.
On April 11, the 76-year-old BNP chief tested positive for COVID-19 and she was admitted to Evercare Hospital on April 27.
She tested negative for COVID-19 on May 8, 27 days after she had been infected with the deadly virus.
On June 19, Khaleda Zia got back home from the hospital after 53 days of treatment for COVID-19 infections and other physical complications.
Amid the coronavirus outbreak, the government temporarily freed Khaleda Zia from jail through an executive order suspending her sentences on March 25 last year.
