In Chitalmari of Bagerhat, people are increasingly interested in getting corona vaccine.  So the line of vaccination is getting longer every day.  Crowds of people at the vaccination center are increasing on a fast pace.  

Hundreds of people have been standing in line for a long time.  Women and the elderly are in dire straits.  Authorities are struggling to cope with the influx of people coming to get the vaccine.  Such a picture was seen in front of the Upazila Health Complex.

People who came to get vaccinated said that it was not possible to get vaccinated due to the crowd even after standing in the hot sun for hours after submitting the registration papers in the morning.

Chitalmari Upazila Health & Family Planning Officer Md.  Mamun Hasan said the number of people receiving vaccinations is surprisingly increasing.  We have the capacity to vaccinate 400 to 500 doses per day.  Vaccination will also be given in 21 booths of 7 unions of the upazila from August 7.

He added that so far 8,622 people have received 1st and 2nd dose vaccinations from Chitalmari Upazila Health Complex.  Later, 3,752 people took the 1st dose in the second phase of vaccination.
