The government of Bangladesh has decided to lower the minimum age limit for Covid-19 vaccination to 25 years.

Bangladeshi citizens of 25 years of age and above can now register for vaccination on the government’s ‘Surokkha’ platform.

Earlier on July 19, the government had cut the age limit short from 35 to 30 for vaccine registration.

To make the vaccination process easier for rural people, the government has decided to inoculate people at union parishad level with their National Identity (NID) cards from August 7.
