State Minister for Primary and Mass Education Md Zakir Hossen on Tuesday said all the primary schoolteachers of the country will be vaccinated against Covid-19 within a week.

He also urged the primary schoolteachers and staff of the ministry who are above 40 years to come and get vaccinated using face masks.

The junior minister came up with the information while talking to reporters after taking the vaccine along with his ministry’s Secretary Golam Md Hasibul Alam at Bangladesh Secretariat Clinic.

Expressing his feelings after vaccination, the state minister said, “It seemed normal to me. I felt much more comfortable than other injections.”

“I thank the Prime Minister for bringing the vaccine to our country much earlier than many other countries in the world,” he said

Zakir also said, “Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina has already asked the Health Ministry to bring the teachers under the vaccination drive. We will try our best to complete their vaccination within the next seven days.”
