With 65,368 people inoculated on Friday, Bangladesh recorded the third lowest number of inoculations since the beginning of vaccination program

Health authorities in Bangladesh inoculated less than 66,000 people against the contagious Covid-19 disease on Friday, making it the third lowest doses administered since the vaccination program began.

With the vaccination of 65,368 people on Friday, Bangladesh has administered the first dose of the Covid-19 jab to over six million people, bringing the total doses administered to 6,632,068.

Of the vaccines administered until Friday, 3,244,399 were men, and 1,960,425 were women, according to the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).

Earlier in the week, inoculations saw a gradual decline, with three clusters of one million people receiving their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine in six, eight and 12 days, respectively.

The DGHS had initially planned to inoculate six million people in the first month of the campaign.

People aged 40 years and above now can get registered to receive Covid-19 vaccines, according to sources from the Health Ministry. Health authorities plan to start administering the second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine from April 8.

Two of Friday’s vaccine recipients experienced mild side effects. Until now, 927 people have recorded side effects after the initial dose of the vaccine.
