A total of 1,328,436 people have so far been registered to receive Covid-19 vaccines as vaccination campaign was launched on January 27.

“As many as 1,328,436 people got registered till 2.30pm today (Friday) to get the shots,” said sources at Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).

As of February 11, the number of vaccine receivers is 542,309 as the countrywide vaccination campaign began February 7. Among them, 386,578 are male and 155,731 females.

People aged 40 years and above now can get registered to receive Covid-19 vaccines, the health ministry sources said.

According to an earlier decision of the government, people aged 55 years and above were only eligible for the shot but it was revised a day after launching of the countrywide Covid-19 vaccination drive.

The vaccination drive was conducted at 50 hospitals in Dhaka city and 1,005 hospitals outside the capital, the DGHS said, adding the immunization program will begin at 8am and will continue till 2.30 pm every day.

But some hospitals will continue the vaccination program throughout the day, the health official said.
