Health and Family Welfare Minister Zahid Maleque said the ministry will consider engaging private hospitals in Covid-19 vaccination programme throughout the country.

“We are taking proper steps to this end. We hope you (private sector) will be given responsibility for administering vaccine following the approval of the Prime Minister,” he said.

The health minister came up with the statement at a discussion arranged by Bangladesh Private Medical College Association (BPMCA) at a city hotel on Wednesday.

Speaking at the programme, BPMCA President MA Mubin Khan also demanded engagement of the private sector in carrying out vaccination programme.
