The government has decided to use the Covid-19 vaccine of Moderna as a booster dose instead of Pfizer jabs.
The Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) yesterday issued a notice in this regard, asking everyone involved with the government's vaccination drive to comply with the directive.
Doses of Pfizer vaccine will be reserved for students, aged 12-17 years, and others who have received the Pfizer vaccine as the first dose, reads the notice.
The government introduced the booster dose for the frontline workers and senior citizens on December 28 in Dhaka, which was expanded countywide gradually.
Since the beginning, Covid-19 shots of Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca were being used as the booster dose.
