Bangladesh's inoculation campaign now hangs in the balance due to the government’s short-sightedness, says its chief GM Quader

Jatiya Party Chairman GM Quader on Friday said the government is assuring the people every day of vaccination, but there is no visible success in this regard.

“Bangladesh is unable to make a mark in international vaccine diplomacy. The foreign minister himself said yesterday [Thursday] that many countries have agreed to give us vaccines, but no one can say when it may happen. So, the common people have lost faith in the government's assurance about vaccines,” he said.

In a statement, he also said people have a perception that that no alternative source of the vaccine has been kept since the jabs from Serum Institute of India have been procured through Beximco Pharmaceuticals from a business point of view.

“It is learned that a company [Beximco] has made crores of taka by importing the vaccine, though the required jabs as per the agreement are not available,” the Jatiya Party chairman said.

He said the mass vaccination program has now become uncertain as there is no alternative source for the vaccine.

“It is not yet clear whether the 1.5 million people who have already received the first dose of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine would get the second dose,” GM Quader said.

He said the possibility of administering the vaccine to the country’s millions of people is now hanging in the balance only because of the government’s short-sighted decision.
