‘Coronavaccin first to care workers and vulnerable groups’

When a vaccine against the coronavirus becomes available, the cabinet wants care workers and vulnerable groups to be vaccinated first. In a second batch of vaccines, people with vital professions are also vaccinated against the virus. Only after that comes the rest of the populations turn. This is evidenced by a note that a part of the Council of Ministers will discuss Tuesday, the thrust of which is known to NRC.

The first group is estimated to have 3.5 million people. People who are over 70 years old and are not self-reliant, adults with risky conditions (such as diabetes, heart patients, lung diseases) and people with severe overweight are included among vulnerable people.

With this plan, the government anticipates an opinion from the Health Council on Thursday on who should be vaccinated first. The plan is still surrounded by a lot of uncertainty.
