Pfizer-Moderna jabs
Health and Family Welfare Minister Zahid Maleque said any vaccine can be given above the age of 18 years old. Under the age of 18, Pfizer and Modern vaccines may be given according to the guidelines of the World Health Organization and other countries.

He made the remarks after visiting the Comprehensive Examination Center for Nursing and Midwifery courses on Saturday morning, September 4.

The minister said the decision on how to vaccinate children would be taken at an inter-ministerial meeting on Sunday, September 5.

He said Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are being given to children over the age of 12 in the same way in other countries, especially in the United States and Britain. We can follow it too.

Zahid Maleque said that the second dose of the vaccine is in stock and those who have been given the first dose through the campaign will be given the second dose from September 7.

People were less interested in getting vaccinated in the village, we took some programs to inspire them.

The minister said the rest will also be vaccinated in phases. Another six crore vaccines have been demanded from China and 100 million from the World Health Organization. The vaccines are expected to be available by January next year. The crisis will end if we get 16 crore vaccines.
