Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday said the government has planned to gradually bring students 12 and above under the vaccination coverage.
Hasina said this while replying to a tabled question from Jatiya Party MP Dr Rustam Ali Farazi during PM’s question-answer session in Parliament.
The Prime Minister said the government has a plan to vaccinate 80 percent of the country’s population.
To bring 50 percent of people under vaccination coverage by December 2021, the government is taking measures as per the guidelines of the World Health Organisation (WHO), she told the House.
To make that happen, Hasina said, the government will provide vaccine jabs for the students aged 12 or above.
