Director General of the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) Prof Dr ABM Khurshid Alam on Sunday said a total of 24 people from different classes will be vaccinated on the first day.
“Around 400-500 health workers will be given vaccine the next day. The list has already been submitted to the directorate,” he said while talking to reporters at the Secretariat.
The DGHS chief said the ICT Division will hand over the app for online registration of vaccine recipients on Monday.
He, however, said they will start the registration manually if the handover of the app is delayed.
Bangladesh is set to start the nationwide Covid-19 vaccination programme on February 8 with a plan to inoculate 2 lakh people every day.
In the first phase, 1.6 crore people will be vaccinated against the deadly virus.
