Which groups have priority for vaccination?Last update: 21/06/2021
Vaccines will become available gradually, and so the Prince’s Government has had to establish priorities to ensure that at-risk groups are at the front of the queue. These groups are:
- Elderly people living in care settings
- People aged over 55
- People aged over 18 who present risk factors for co-morbidity according to a list drawn up by the French High Authority of Health taken up in Monaco.
- People with underlying health conditions (obesity (BMI>30), particularly among younger people, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and respiratory disease, complex high blood pressure disorders, heart disease, type 1 or type 2 diabetes, chronic kidney disease, recent history of cancer (within the last three years), solid organ transplant or haematopoietic stem cell transplant, Down’s syndrome, etc.)
- Healthcare workers, etcA
The vaccination campaign will therefore be rolled out in several phases to target each category of the population.
