Modi, Jagan and KCR Likely to be Vaccinated

As the vaccination campaign against COVID-19 continues with varying degrees of enthusiasm in the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Ministers of various States are likely to get the jab in the second phase of vaccination for those over 50 years of age.

The PM said in the CMs' meet that the turn of other politicians, who are above 50, will come in next phase.

After healthcare and frontline workers such as police, armed forces and municipal workers, the third category to be vaccinated is likely to be people over the age of 50, followed by those who are below 50 but suffer from co-morbidities.

A tentative prioritisation for vaccination was discussed at the meeting held between PM Modi and the state chief ministers on November 24 and has been communicated to state governments, said people familiar with the development, Economic Times reported.

A 50-year plus grouping appears to be an expansion of the earlier category that was under discussion.

So far, the government officials had been saying this category would comprise 'senior citizens' and the 'elderly', and it was expected that this group would consist of people over the age of 65.
