Health and Family Welfare Minister Jahed Malik has announced that the corona vaccination program for slum dwellers will start from Tuesday (November 18).

The minister was responding to a question from reporters at a freezer van distribution programme at Bangladesh College of Physicians and Surgeons (BCPS) auditorium in the capital's Mohakhali area today.

Initially, the vaccination campaign for slum dwellers will start in Korail Slum in the capital.

"We have planned to bring the areas with comparatively higher population density under vaccination coverage. Therefore, the government also plans to inoculate garment workers," the minister said.
