Those who registered earlier but did not receive the vaccine will be given the Sinopharm jabs now

Amid the deteriorating coronavirus situation, the government is going to resume countrywide registration for receiving Covid-19 vaccines from Thursday, said the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) on Tuesday.

“The registration process will resume for all from Thursday morning,” Dr Mizanur Rahman, Director (MIS) of the DGHS, told UNB.  

“Currently, the registration is ongoing only in three categories on a priority basis. As the mass registration process resumes, all the categories will be available for registering through the Surokkha app as before,” he said.   

On June 30, Dr Shamsul Haque, member secretary of the Vaccine Deployment Committee, also made the same announcement at a virtual press briefing arranged by the DGHS.

He said the Sinopharm jabs will be administered at 40 centres in Dhaka city and at all district hospitals from 8am to 3pm every day, as in the past.

Dr Haque said the vaccine will also be given at Bangladesh Institute of Tropical and Infectious Diseases (BITID) in Chittagong and Saidpur Sadar Hospital during the same period.

He said those who registered earlier but did not receive the vaccine will be given the Sinopharm jabs now, while medical and university students and those who are on the priority lists can register for the vaccine. “Everyone will get an SMS from a vaccination centre after registration and all must receive the vaccine at that centre accordingly. “In this case, the vaccine card and NID card must be brought for receiving the vaccine.”

Dr Haque said the Covid vaccination centres will remain out of the purview of the lockdown. “Those who have vaccine cards will be able to go to the relevant centre after showing it.”

He said the expatriate workers who stay in countries where the Sinopharm vaccine is accepted also can receive the vaccine at the centres both in Dhaka and outside. “But no one will get the vaccine without registration.”

Besides, Dr Haque said the Pfizer vaccine will also be administered at seven centres: Dhaka Medical College and Hospital, Salimullah Medical College and Hospital, Mugda Medical College Hospital, Shaheed Suhrawardy Medical College and Hospital, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University, Kurmitola General Hospital, and Sheikh Russel National Gastroliver Institute and Hospital—in the capital.

He said the outbound expatriate workers who are not allowed to return to their workplaces without getting Pfizer vaccine can only receive the vaccine at the seven centers as per the list from the Manpower Export Promotion Bureau.

Dr Haque said those who are supposed to receive Sinopharm jabs from these centres will have to go to alternative centres.
