Bangladesh will hold another nationwide COVID-19 vaccine booster campaign on Jun 4-10.

Adults who got their second vaccine shot four months ago will be allowed to receive a booster during this special campaign, the Directorate General of Health Services said on Tuesday.

The booster doses will be administered to people at all vaccination centres across the country from 9 am during the weeklong campaign. Vaccine seekers will have to carry vaccination cards.
