He said citizens should get a second job from the same hospital or vaccination center where they were first vaccinated.
People who have already received a second SMS but have not received the vaccine can complete the vaccination by displaying the same message.
Shamsul Haque argued that those who received the first dose of the Oxford-Astrageneca vaccine manufactured by SII would receive the same on the second dose.
“People who have been vaccinated with the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine as their first job should be vaccinated with the same vaccine as the second vaccination. Both doses will be the same vaccine. The mixture can cause damage. ”
In response to a reporter’s question, Professor Nazmul Islam, a spokesman for the Director of Health (DGHS), said ignoring health protection rules could increase the risk of infection.

“The way workers from various factories return to Dhaka has great potential for rapid transmission, and healthy people can also be infected in such situations,” he added.
