Germany’s Standing Commission on Vaccination made initial recommendations on Monday for those who will first receive the coronavirus vaccine.
Similar to other countries, the commission gives priority – given the limited supply – to those over 80, residents and personnel in nursing homes, and medical professionals at a high risk of contracting the virus.
The plan aims to “prevent as much health and social harm as possible from the COVID-19 pandemic,” the draft claims.
The health ministry has given expert groups until Thursday to review and comment on the recommendations so that it can then issue a legal resolution on the matter.
