Covid-19 Vaccination in Bangladesh

Covid-19 pandemic has now spread through the entire world and emerged as a major public health threat. It is a highly transmittable and pathogenic vital infection caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. This novel pathogenic virus emerged in Wuhan, China, and has rapidly spread around the world, with 210 countries, including Bangladesh.

To bring this pandemic to an end, a large share of the world needs to be immune to the virus. The safest way to achieve this is with a vaccine. Vaccines are a technology that humanity has often relied on in the past to bring down the death toll of infectious diseases. Within less than 12 months after the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, several research teams rose to the challenge and developed vaccines that protect the virus that causes COVID-19.

As of March 2021. 12 vaccines were authorized by at least one national regulatory authority for public use: two RNA vaccines, four conventional inactivated vaccines, four viral vector vaccines including Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine and two protein subunit vaccines. Now the challenge is to make these vaccines available to people around the world. It will be key that people in all countries – not just in rich countries - receive the required protection.

Bangladesh launches a nationwide COVID-19 vaccination drive with the Oxford University- AstraZeneca vaccine. Bangladesh has ranked 15th in the list of countries with the most number of people vaccinated for Covid-19. According to the data Bangladesh, has already immunized a total 2.08 million people during this period.
