‘Bangladesh to get 89 lakh Covid vaccine doses in last quarter of 2021’
A total of 89 lakh doses of Covid-19 vaccine will be shipped to Bangladesh in the last three months of the year, State Minister for Foreign Affairs Shahriar Alam said in a Facebook post early on Wednesday.
The vaccine will come from two sources -- from the US as donation and from the Covax facility.
"We have received a new allocation of 71 lac Pfizer (US donation) and 18 lac Moderna vaccine (regular COVAX allocation) from COVAX Facility. These vaccines will be shipped in the last quarter of this year. We are hopeful to get more allocation for the same period. Thank you USA n COVAX," wrote Shahriar Alam on his personal Facebook page around 1:00am on Wednesday.
