The additional director general of the Department of Health, Prof. Sabrina Flora said that the vaccine brought by the Bangladesh government from India is the safest vaccine in the world.
He said this while talking to the media after inaugurating the vaccination program at Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujib Medical University at 10 am.
Professor Dr. Sabrina Flora said, this (Oxford-Astrazeneca) vaccine is the safest among all the corona vaccines discovered in the world, it has been proven.
Any vaccine has side effects, I mentioned the side effects to make people aware. So the people of the country can take this vaccine without fear.
The additional director general of the health department said that when a doctor gets vaccinated, his community is interested.
Similarly, when a journalist gets vaccinated, his community is also interested. If people of all occupations get vaccinated, others in their community will also be willing to get vaccinated.
In response to the question why the head of state and government and cabinet members are not taking the vaccine if it is safe, Professor Flora said, I think they will take the vaccine after thinking about the people.
Vaccinating people on priority basis. When the vaccination of the people is over, the head of state and government will take it.
