Vaccination of 50-plus people from March, Centre writes to states

Union health Secretary Rajesh Bhushan on Sunday wrote to all states asking them to significantly enhance the pace of COVID-19 vaccinations as several health and frontline workers were yet to be covered.

“The pace of vaccination needs to be accelerated exponentially to cover all identified beneficiaries in a minimum possible time,” he said.

The secretary also said that the operational strategy for initiating the vaccination of the next priority group–the elderly population and people with comorbidities–to be taken up in March is being finalised.

The group consists of people above the age 50 with a sub-categorisation of people above the age of 60.
