This comes as good news for Bangladesh as the country has been eagerly waiting for AstraZeneca vaccines because some 15 lakh people who got the first jab have been worried if they will get the second dose in time.

These doses have been allocated from COVAX supply but the programme has not mentioned the country from which the AstraZeneca vaccine will be sent to Bangladesh.
