More than two crore people in the country have registered at the ‘Surokkha’ app and website to get the Covid-19 vaccine jab.

An official of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) Division confirmed the information to the media on Saturday. 

He said about “5000 registrations” are being done every minute. From today, registration is increasing due to the mass inoculation across the country.

On July 14, the registration for the vaccine exceeded one crore. Recently, State Minister for ICT Zunaid Ahmed Palak said there is a capacity of 50 lakh registrations per day in the Surokkha app and website.

Registration for the coronavirus vaccine began on January 26. Later, the vaccination campaign started on February 8. The inoculation registration process was suspended from June 6 due to low stock of vaccines. Later, at the end of June, the registration of the vaccine rollout began again. AstraZeneca, Sinopharm, Moderna, and Pfizer vaccines are being rolled out in the country.

So far, 2,56,44,000 Covid-19 vaccines have arrived in the country. 1,47,33,314 doses have already been given. Of these, 44,43,517 people received double doses.
