On Tuesday, at the unveiling ceremony of the song ‘Tika Nin, Tika Nin’ to raise public awareness about vaccination, Md Shafiqul Islam, the Commissioner of the Dhaka Metropolitan Police, stated that the owner will be held liable if an employee is permitted to work while not having been vaccinated.
- The owner will be responsible for an employee who is permitted to work without vaccination.
- In Bangladesh, everyone is eligible for a free vaccination.
- If the owner or employee refuses to obtain the vaccination, the store will be shuttered.
“People have to pay for the vaccination even in our bordering country India,” he remarked. “This is true in several rich countries as well. In Bangladesh, however, everyone is eligible for a free vaccination.”
If a business owner or employee refuses to get vaccinated, the store will be shuttered, according to the Store Owners Association.
