Which groups should be prioritized for vaccination?
WHO recommends that those most at risk of severe illness, death and exposure to COVID-19 get vaccinated first.
These include frontline health workers (especially those providing COVID-19 patient care), older people and those living with other diseases, or existing conditions including hypertension, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, HIV or cancer.
COVID-19 vaccines save lives. When you get the call, get the vaccine.
