US Ambassador Earl R Miller has announced another consignment of three million doses of Moderna's Covid-19 vaccine for Bangladesh.
These vaccine doses are coming to Bangladesh from the American people via the COVAX facility, he said.
"The US is committed to increasing the country’s vaccine supply to beat the pandemic here and worldwide," Ambassador Miller tweeted.
In the first week of July, Bangladesh received the first consignment of 2.5 million doses of the Moderna vaccine under the COVAX facility.
Meanwhile, Bangladesh will receive 20 lakh doses of the Sinopharm vaccine from China on Saturday night as part of a commercial agreement.
Deputy Chief of Mission at Chinese Embassy in Dhaka, Hualong Yan told UNB on Friday that the vaccine doses would arrive at Hazrat Shahjalal International Airport in two planes.
