Another 20 to 30 lakh vaccines are coming on 22 February

Nazmul Hasan Papon, managing director of Beximco Pharmaceuticals Limited and president of the BCB, said another 20 to 30 lakh vaccines for the second coronavirus would arrive on February 22.

He was speaking to reporters after receiving the vaccine at Kurmitola Hospital in the capital on Monday (February 15th). This is the second shipment of 30 million doses purchased from the Seram Institute of India. The Oxford vaccine will come to Dhaka in 6 stages at a cost of Rs 50 lakh each time.

“The number of vaccines may vary depending on our needs,” Papon said. Because there are still more than 6 million ticker stocks. However, there is no issue of breach of contract. There will be no crisis with vaccines. And this vaccine is the safest vaccine.

Earlier, on January 20, the Government of India sent 2 million doses of Oxford-Astrogen Gene vaccine produced by the Serum Institute of India as a gift to Bangladesh. The first consignment of Rs 5 million bought later came on January 25.

Vaccination started on February 8 across the country. The first to be vaccinated was Runu Veronica Costa, a senior staff nurse at Kurmitola General Hospital. As of Sunday, more than nine lakh people had been vaccinated.
