Minimum age now 50 for Covid booster dose

The government has fixed the age limit for Covid-19 booster dose to 50 years from 60.

Health Minister Zahid Maleque announced the decision on Monday.

Bangladesh on December 28 officially began the administration of booster doses of a Covid-19 vaccine.

Currently, those over the age of 60 and those working as frontliners are eligible for the third dose.

Anyone receiving the booster must have received the second dose of the vaccine six months ago.

On January 13, the government decided to administer Moderna vaccine instead of the Pfizer jab as the third or booster dose at all vaccine centres across the country.
