Rajshahi City Corporation (RCC) is going to bring 1,25,440 people under the second dose of vaccines in its 4-day long ward-level vaccination campaign scheduled to be held from tomorrow (Tuesday), reports BSS.

The targeted people, who have got the first dose vaccines on July 7 and July 8, will receive the 2nd dose vaccines on September 7 to 8 and September 11 to 12. They were asked to bring and show vaccine registration cards before taking the vaccines.

RCC will conduct the Covid-19 vaccination campaign at 84 centres in all 30 wards simultaneously. Two health workers and three volunteers will be deployed in each of the centres for vaccination purposes.

However, the ongoing vaccination activities at the centres of Teachers Training College, Police Hospital, ID Hospital and CMH will continue as usual.

"We have taken all sorts of preparations for conducting the vaccination programme successfully," said RCC Mayor AHM Khairuzzaman Liton, adding that steps have been taken to attain the 100 percent target of the Covid-19 vaccination.

"We have also extended the registration support at ward councilors' offices and other suitable places free of cost for expediting the vaccination programme," he said.

Liton said Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has faced the Covid-19 pandemic with courage and arranged vaccines to protect the people from the lethal virus.

He said the premier has adopted an epoch-making step by launching union and ward level vaccination programmes and urged all quarters to extend their whole-hearted cooperation for making the programme a total success.
