Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Tuesday reaffirmed her government's stance to ensure Covid-19 vaccine doses for all in any case.
"Whatever the money is needed, whatever the number of vaccines is required, we’ll buy that," she said.
The prime minister said this while inaugurating National Public Service Day 2018 and distributing Public Administration Award 2018 at the Osmani Memorial Auditorium.
Hasina joined the programme virtually from her official residence Ganobhaban.
The prime minister said Bangladesh will produce vaccines in the future so that the people of the country do not suffer in any way.
Hasina said the government has started procuring and providing vaccines. "We’ve to give these vaccines massively so that all can stay safe. Inshallah, we’ll get rid of this coronavirus."
The prime minister said she has already given directives to vaccinate the helping hands of a family, including housemaids and drivers, so that all of a family can remain protected.
Hasina said the pandemic has caused a great problem for every sector, including the economy, education and social sectors.
She urged all to follow the health guidelines strictly and asked field-level administration to make people better aware about it.
The prime minister said 1.87 crore people have so far been vaccinated and all will be brought under the vaccination programme.
"No one will be left out… we’re procuring vaccines for all. Our vaccination programme will go on," she said.
