Two aircraft of Bangladesh Air Force will leave for China tonight to bring in six lakh doses of the Sinopharm Covid-19 vaccine.
Bangladesh is receiving the vaccine shots as a gift from China.
Earlier in May, China gifted five lakh doses of its Sinopharm Covid-19 vaccine to Bangladesh.
On 25 May, about 500 students from four medical colleges were administered the vaccine on an experimental basis.
Later, Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) administered the Sinopharm Covid-19 vaccine to more than 450 Chinese citizens.
Last month, Foreign Minister Dr AK Abdul Momen said that Dhaka has placed its orders for June, July, and August as Sinopharm produces the shots after getting the orders.
