PM through video conference addressed "The priority of vaccination has been decided as per the advice of the experts and scientific community after consultation with the States. Health workers, from both government and private sector, will be the first ones to receive the vaccine. Along with them, Safai Karmacharis, other Frontline Workers, police and paramilitary, Home Guards, Disaster Management Volunteers and other jawans in Civil Defence, and Revenue Officials associated with containment and surveillance, will also receive the vaccine in the first stage."

The first inoculation drive started on January 16th 2021 and is aimed to administer vaccines to the frontline workers, doctors, healthcare workers etc. According to the Union Health Ministry, around 7 lakhs of them have already been vaccinated till January 20th 2021.
