The committee advises priority vaccination of the following groups: 

  • frontline health and social care workers 
  • those at increased risk of serious disease and death from COVID-19 infection stratified according to age and risk factors 

There is ongoing work within the UK to refine the identification of persons at risk of serious disease and mortality from COVID-19 infection. As well as age and underlying co-morbid conditions, the committee notes that early signals have been identified of other potential risk factors, including deprivation and ethnicity.
