Health Secretary Abdul Mannan on Tuesday said that Bangladesh will receive 1.31 lakh vaccine doses under Covax by the end of February.
The number of coronavirus vaccine registration has been reached to 6 lakh across the country, he said.
Elderly people, who are unable to get registered, will be administered vaccines under special arrangements, the secretary added.
Bangladesh will get 1,27,92,000 doses of the Oxford University-AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine in the first half of 2021 under Covax programme.
Covax is co-led by the World Health Organization (WHO), the Gavi vaccine alliance, and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations.
The Covax programme to ensure equitable worldwide access to Covid-19 vaccines on Wednesday published its first distribution list, with enough doses for countries to immunize more than 3% of their populations by mid-2021.
The vaccines will be available in phases. Doses of the first lot are expected to arrive by June this year.
Covax is an international health group that made deals with vaccine manufacturers to ensure that low and middle-income countries get equal access to coronavirus vaccines.
