Bangladesh will accept only the WHO recognised COVID 19 vaccines for use in the country. Briefing media after the cabinet meeting on Wednesday, Cabinet Secretary Khandaker Anwarul Islam said that the government has been in touch with all the countries and organisations trying to develop the vaccine. He expressed hope that Bangladesh will get the COVID 19 vaccine on priority basis for which the government has set aside Tk 600 crore.

He said Bangladesh is also eligible for receiving vaccines under the Global Alliance for Vaccines and Immunizations (GAVI) whose meeting was addressed by Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in June. The Cabinet Secretary said that pharmaceutical companies from Bangladesh are in negotiation with vaccine producers for commercial production of the vaccine.
