The health ministry on Thursday signed a tripartite contract with Serum Institute of India Private Limited and local pharmaceutical company Beximco Pharmaceuticals Limited to import three crore doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, developed by Oxford-AstraZeneca, from January.

The three crore doses would be used, on a priority basis, to vaccinate 1.5 crore frontline workers like health workers, police, journalists, and ailing people as well, health minister Zahid Maleque said at the post-agreement signing press briefing at his office.

‘The Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine will be imported after it gets approval from the World Health Organisation,’ he said, adding that Serum Institute would export 50 lakh doses to Bangladesh per month. Each person will be required to take two doses of the vaccine, he said. Health secretary Md Abdul Mannan, Indian high commissioner Vikram Kumar Doraiswami, Serum Institute’s additional director Sandeep C Mulay, Beximco Pharma managing director Nazmul Hassan Papon, among others, were present at the ceremony.
According to the contract, the government will pay $5 for each of the doses to Serum Institute, including $4 as price and $1 for carrying it maintaining the required temperature.

Serum Institute will pay its local agent Beximco Pharma
for carrying the vaccines from the former’s warehouse to the Bangladesh government’s warehouse, according to the tripartite deal. Serum Institute, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of vaccines, is producing one billion doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine, an adenovirus vector-based vaccine. The COVID-19 vaccine is currently undergoing large-scale phase-III trials in Brazil, US, UK and India and is expected to receive approval by the end of 2020.

Sheikh Hasina once again deployed her famous looting arm, Salman F. Rahman majority owner of Beximco. For those who do not know, Salman F. Rahman is the main looter of Bangladeshi stock market but serving as advisor to Hasina.

Beximco seriously has a great job running point to point carrying vaccines.

Yeah but fortunately Oxford vaccine doesn't require much in way of cold storage infrastructure, The other candidate vaccines ranging from -20 to -70 degrees celsius are next to impossible for Bangladesh to distribute.

Also to note, current awami league regime earlier delayed and then rejected Chinese vaccine offer. This carries clear signal that regime is implementing clear instruction from Delhi that was delivered by indian FS just a month ago.

Oxford vaccine already caused spinal infection and caused one confirmed death in the trial. Even for india safety factors need to be considered. It remains unclear if this vaccine is safe and when a safe vaccine will be available.

Chinese were wanting Bangladesh to spend on vaccine trials. With India, you just buy validated vaccine. How can you equate both?
