Health Minister Zahid Maleque on Monday said Bangladesh will receive the first consignment of Oxford-AstraZeneca's Covid-19 vaccine on January 25-26.
"As per the guideline of WHO, we will vaccinate those first who are working with risks. And elderly people will get more priority. Prople below the age of 18 will not get the vaccine, " the minister said.
The minister also said they have already trained up 4200 people to push the vaccine properly. " We have also made a high powered national committee and also made a list of those who will get the vaccine first. Every journalist will get the vaccine as they work with risk," he also said.
