BOA pledges to vaccinate Olympic participants in time

Bangladesh Olympic Association pledged to vaccinate all Tokyo Olympic Games participants travelling to Japan from Bangladesh in advance.

The Bangladesh was among the first few countries, which started vaccination programme as soon as it was available.

Players and people involved with sports in Bangladesh were prioritized in being vaccinated.

BOA vice president Shikh Bashir Al Mamum said while most of the participants had already been vaccinated, the heath ministry and his organization has taken the steps to vaccinate the others as soon as it is possible.

“We are confident that all of the participants and officials who would travel to Japan from Bangladesh for Olympic Games, will be vaccinated much earlier than the games starts,” Mamun told media on Thursday.

The BOA also vowed to contribute for a safe conduct of Tokyo Olympic Games and remain committed about the rules set by the Government of Japan.
