In the first phase of vaccination driver, the government administered vaccine to frontline workers including health workers from January 27 to February 6.

Now, the government is starting the first-phase to the second-priority people of above 55 years from March 7. The government has made preparations to inoculate vaccine to 20 percent of people of the total population to the first and second priority group.
