In Bangladesh, the coronavirus vaccination program officially started in country on Sunday 8th February. At the outset, frontline workers and citizens over 40 years of age will be vaccinated. This age limit was earlier fixed at 55 years but it has been reduced again. People over the age of 40 can go to any government hospital and get vaccinated.
However, if you want to get vaccinated, you have to register your name through the official website. Earlier, an app was supposed to be launched but now it is not working.
