At present only government frontline workers, persons aged above 60 years and those above 45 years with co morbidities were allowed to get the vaccination, apart from officials on election duty.
Shankar said that NGO frontline workers include those helping persons in distress, aged, children and ill persons such as those infected by deadly viruses such as HIV.
“NGO frontline workers don’t do a desk job but are on the field helping those in need. The request to vaccinate them on priority is not only to protect them and their dependents from Covid-19 but also the multitude they help or meet on a daily basis. So we requested the TN heath secretary to vaccinate them on priority,” he added.
