Bangladesh plans to vaccinate children aged 5-12 against COVID in July


The rise in recent coronavirus cases has worried the government, Maleque said, but the Directorate General of Health Services is not worried. The children will get Pfizer vaccines, said Dr Meerjady Sabrina Flora, head of the National Vaccine Deployment Committee. In order to get the vaccine, children aged 5-12 will have to register using their birth certificate on the government's Surokkha app. Children will not get the same COVID vaccine that adults do, she said. Bangladesh has seen a surge in coronavirus cases recently, registering 2,087 cases of COVID-19 in the 24 hours to 8 am on Tuesday, taking the overall tally of infections to 1,969,361.
