The RMG workers can get the jabs without registration after showing their NID cards

Gazipur City Corporation Mayor Advocate Jahangir Alam inaugurated the Covid-19 vaccination program at Toshka Denim Factory in the Konabari area of Gazipur on Sunday.

According to sources, about 12,000 workers of four factories will be vaccinated on the first day without the need for registration. 

Obaidur Haque, a supervisor at the Toshka factory, praised the convenience with which the workers could get vaccinated. 

“I have tried to get vaccinated before, but could not due to registration problems.”

Fatema Akhter, a female worker of the same factory, thanked the organizers for arranging the vaccination program and said: "I have been vaccinated. Now I will go to the village to celebrate Eid without being worried.” 

Advocate Jahangir said the initiative was taken to prevent coronavirus infection. Everyone must follow the hygiene rules even if they are vaccinated.

He further assured that all garment workers would be vaccinated in phases, but they must bring their National Identity Cards (NID) at the time of vaccination.
