Front-line workers – from doctors, nurses and hospital assistants to those working in sanitation – are among the first Indians to get vaccinated against Covid-19.
The world’s largest inoculation drive kicked off with an address by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who praised health workers and others on the front lines of the months-long fight against the coronavirus.
Hundreds of thousands of essential workers – most of them health workers – are expected to be vaccinated on the first day.
Some 10 million health workers are in line to be vaccinated, followed by policemen, soldiers, municipal and other front-line workers. Next up will be people aged over 50 and anyone under 50 with serious underlying health conditions.
