First dose of Chinese vaccine
The first dose of Chinese vaccine will start from May 25, said Health Minister Zahid Maleque. He made the remarks at a press briefing at the Health Ministry's conference room at noon on Monday, May 17.

The health minister said, "The first dose of the vaccine that has arrived from China will start from May 25. In addition, we have talked to Russia, China, the United Kingdom, the United States and other countries for the vaccine. You will know if there is anything final. Talking to India, UK for second dose. The Prime Minister herself has tried. We have 3 crore orders to india, we got 70 lakh. We are worried about the second dose."

"Any vaccine requires an application from the drug administration," he said.

"We will also decide to purchase and produce if necessary. Those who have the capacity to produce must come forward. We have to see their application first. Then the final decision will be made. No such decision was made."
