Bangladesh planning to administer Chinese vaccine from next week

The government has plans to begin administering next week the 500,000 doses of Sinopharm’s COVID-19 vaccine sent by China as gift.

Health Minister Zahid Maleque said at a news briefing on Monday that the health workers on the frontline of the fight against the coronavirus will get the doses starting May 25 or 26.

The Directorate General of Health Services had earlier said students of medical and nursing colleges, and medical technologists would get the gift doses.

Maleque also said there had been significant progress in talks to bring vaccines from other countries, reports bdnews24.com.
