Pfizer’s 6 million vaccines are coming by September

Another 6 million doses of Pfizer- BioNTech vaccine to prevent coronavirus will arrive in Bangladesh by next September, Health Minister Zahid Malek said. He said, some consignments of the vaccine will arrive in the country this month.

The health minister said this while talking to reporters at the secretariat on Monday.

On May 31, Bangladesh received 1 lakh 620 doses of Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine from the United States under COVAX. This vaccine was applied experimentally in the country on June 21. At that time, the government was informed about getting more vaccines.

The health minister said he would receive 6 million Pfizer vaccines by September. Some will come this month, the rest in September.

The Pfizer vaccine should be stored between minus 90 degrees and minus 60 degrees Celsius below freezing. As a result, an ultra-cold freezer is needed to store these vaccines. This vaccine needs to be transported in a thermal shipping container or ultra-freezer van.

At the same time, 100 million doses of vaccine will be available through the World Health Organization. Between January and February, 7 to 8 crore people will be vaccinated.

The health minister further said that the coroner’s mass vaccination activities are not taking place at present. When the vaccine arrives, everyone must register and get vaccinated.
