Online registration for school students with birth registration certificate has started in a bid to inoculate the school students of the country.

Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) sources said the school students aged from 12-17 years can now register online through surokkha apps to get the coronavirus vaccine.

The surokkha website already has kept an option of completing the registration with birth registration certificate numbers.

Earlier, the vaccine seekers were able to register online for the vaccine only by giving the NID number.

The government on Thursday inoculated 120 school students with Pfizer vaccine as test run in Manikganj Colonel Malek Medical College Hospital.

The school authorities already have been asked to send list of the students for giving the coronavirus vaccine, the DGHS sources said.
