The national advisory committee on corona related affairs thinks that it will be very difficult to reopen the educational institutions if students do not get vaccines. So they have suggested examining the possibility of injecting vaccines to the students aged over 18 years.
The information was delivered through a press release on behalf of the committee on Sunday night. Some recommendations were made in this regard in the 22nd meeting of the advisory committee headed by its chairman Dr. Md. Shahidullah.
The press release said, by this time the government has signed a tripartite agreement with India’s Siram Institute and Beximco Pharmaceuticals to buy three crore dozes of Oxford and Astrazeneka vaccines. The government has allocated money in this regard. The government is focusing on providing vaccines for the frontline activists like physicians, police, journalists and vulnerable people like people aged over sixty.
The national advisory committee thinks that the preparation activities for vaccine distribution, maintenance and doze providing should be completed fast. It will be difficult to reopen universities and colleges if students do not get vaccines. So it should be examined the possibility of giving vaccines to the students aged over 18 years.
Mentionable, the government closed the educational institutions of the country on March 17 following breakout of coronavirus in the country. It has been extended up to December 19 by phases. Some universities have continued their online educational activities.
