Vaccination against the coronavirus will take place in three phases, Czech Health Minister Jan Blatny said at a press conference on Tuesday, according to a report by Czech Radio.
The initial A1 phase, which is currently underway, will see the inoculation of those over the age of 80 as well as health care, social care and relevant Interior Ministry staff. In phase 2B, other groups in society marked as high-risk or relevant groups will receive the vaccine. This includes people over the age of 65, those with relevant chronic diseases and priority groups involved in critical state infrastructure.
The vaccination of health care staff and seniors, some 600,000 people according to the presentation, should be finished by March. After these two initial stages, the final phase 2 will be activated, where all other members of the population who register will receive the vaccine. Registration for the general population will open in February.
