The experimental vaccination of school children started on Thursday

Vaccination of students aged 12 to 18 will start tomorrow on an experimental basis. After vaccinating 50 to 100 children on the first day at multiple centers in Dhaka on Thursday (October 14th), they will be monitored. From next week, children will be vaccinated in Dhaka and all other city corporations and districts.

Earlier in the day, the Director General of the Department of Health, Professor. Abul Bashar Mohammad Khurshid Alam said the immunization program for students aged 12 to 18 will start this week. Currently, preparations are underway to vaccinate school children at 21 centers at district and city corporation level across the country. In this case, preparations are underway to vaccinate at the Bangabandhu International Conference Center in Agargaon, Dhaka. Many students can be vaccinated here at once.

He said the school would provide a list of students to the educational institution, according to which tickers would be registered in security apps with birth registration certificates.

In Bangladesh, people over the age of 18 are now being vaccinated. The World Health Organization has no direct guidelines for vaccinating people under the age of 18. The issue of vaccinating minors came to the fore when the educational institution reopened in September.
