BNP Chairperson Khaleda Zia will receive the second dose of Moderna Covid-19 vaccine at Sheikh Russel Gastroliver Institute and Hospital on Thursday afternoon.
She is scheduled to leave her Gulshan residence around 2pm for the hospital to receive the vaccine shot, said her media wing member Sayrul Kabir Khan.
Party senior leaders and Khaleda’s personal physicians will be present there at the hospital.
Meanwhile, BNP chief’s personal secretary ABM Abdus Sattar sent a letter to the Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) commissioner seeking her security during the vaccination.
Earlier on July 19, Khaleda took the first dose of Moderna Covid-19 vaccine at the same hospital.
She registered online through Surokkha website for getting the vaccine on July 8.
On April 11, the 76-year-old BNP chief tested positive for Covid-19 and she was admitted to Evercare Hospital on April 27.
She tested negative for Covid-19 on May 8, 27, days after she had been infected with the deadly virus.
On June 19, Khaleda Zia got back home from the hospital after 53 days of treatment for Covid infections and other physical complications.
Amid the coronavirus outbreak, the government temporarily freed Khaleda Zia from jail through an executive order suspending her sentences on March 25 last year.
