The priority list drawn by the National Expert Group on Vaccine Administration for Covid-19 (NEGVAC) recommended that after vaccinating nearly 30 million health care and frontline workers, the next should be those above 50 years of age, including those with comorbidities.

The above 50 years of age category to be vaccinated on priority has been sub-divided into further categories — those above 60 years of age and in the specified comorbid groups, and those between 45 and 59 years of age.
