Bangladesh to get 10 lakh AstraZeneca vaccine doses from India today
Bangladesh will receive one million AstraZeneca vaccine doses from India on Saturday evening.
Indian High Commission in Dhaka confirmed it.
The consignment of vaccine doses is scheduled to arrive at 5:40pm from the Serum Institute of India.
This is commercial supply against the Beximco order.
Earlier, the Indian government announced resumption of COVID-19 vaccine exports from October amid improvement of COVID situation.
The world’s largest vaccine producer had halted exports in April to cater to domestic demand as infections shot up.
Bangladesh entered a deal with the Serum Institute of India (SII) to purchase 30 million doses of a potential vaccine developed by AstraZeneca.
