Staff Correspondent

The country will receive the first consignment of Oxford-AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine in January, Health Minister Zahid Maleque yesterday said.

Fifty lakh shots of the three crore doses of the vaccine could reach the country on any day of January, he said while addressing a procurement contract-signing ceremony of the vaccine at the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) in Dhaka.

The remaining doses will come in phases with 50 lakh each month.

Prof ABM Khurshid Alam, director general of the DGHS, signed the agreement on behalf of the government and Nazmul Hasan Papon, managing director of Beximco Pharmaceuticals Ltd, on behalf of the mediator company.

The contract paper will be sent to the Serum Institute of India (SII) for producer’s authorisation.

Among others, Prof Nasima Sultana, additional director general (administration) of the DGHS, was also present there.
