Later, talking to reporters, he said, “I'm fine. There’s no reason to get panicked. I urge the country’s people to get vaccinated whenever your date comes. It’s your duty to receive the vaccine.”
Zafrullah called upon Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to receive the vaccine soon to encourage people to follow suit.
"Many people have been vaccinated. Had the Prime Minister taken the vaccine today, the people of the country would have gotten more confidence in the vaccine,” he observed.
Zafrullah said BNP leaders and activists also should receive the vaccine since they have to run here and there in the field. “They (BNP leaders and activists) have to remain fit and healthy, if they want to wage a movement.”
