Take Covid-19 vaccine first to dispel public apprehension: Zafrullah requests PM

Gonoshasthaya Kendra founder and trustee Dr Zafrullah Chowdhury has requested Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to take the Covid-19 vaccine first to dispel apprehension among people over vaccination.

He also said that there is no need to be worried about the vaccine.

"There is no need to be apprehensive of the vaccine. Some side effects may be seen after vaccination," he said.

He said this at a press conference titled "Proper Management of Corona Vaccine" organised by Gonoshasthaya Kendra in Dhaka today.

Zafrullah suggested the government to distribute vaccines among the working-class people who are more exposed to infection.

"Not all physicians, only doctors who are treating Covid-19 patients should be given the vaccine. Similarly, only traffic police should be vaccinated," he said.

He also asked the government not to let private import of vaccines until the free vaccination is complete.
