Jatiya Party Chairman and deputy leader of the opposition in parliament GM Quader said government’s short-sightedness has led to the uncertainty about getting Covid-19 vaccine jabs.

In a statement on Friday, the Jatiya Party chairman said the government is assuring the people every day of vaccination, but there is no visible success in this regard.

“The common people have lost their faith in the government’s assurance about vaccines,” he added.

The Jatiya Party chairman also said people have a perception that no alternative source of the vaccine has been kept since the jabs from Serum Institute of India have been procured through Beximco Pharmaceuticals from a business point of view.

He said the mass vaccination programme has now become uncertain as there is no alternative source for the vaccine.

“It is not yet clear whether the 1.5 million people who have already received the first dose of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine would get the second dose,” GM Quader said.
