The government has planned to start a mass inoculation campaign again from next month, October. For this, all kinds of preparations will be completed within the next four to five days.

Professor Dr. ABM Khurshid Alam, director general of the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) confirmed this to the media on Monday. 

It is learned that about two crore vaccines will be given every month including one crore jabs through the COVID vaccine campaign. 

“We are not calling this mass inoculation campaign, however, we will vaccinate on a large scale,” the DGHS DG told the media

“We will be able to announce in two to four days when we will be able to start the vaccination campaign,” he said, but could not give any specific date at the moment. 

Khurshid Alam said, “We have started looking for alternative places for educational institutions. We started looking for a big auditorium with open space in any upazila of the country. Hopefully, we will be able to determine the vaccination center within 2 to 3 days.” 

Asked which vaccine would be given across the country this time, the DGHS DG said, “Sinopharm vaccine will be given all over the country.”
