The next phase of COVID-19 vaccination commenced from March 1 for people over 60 years and those aged 45 and above with specified co-morbid conditions. Inoculation of all people aged over 45 years began on April 1.

The government then decided to expand its vaccination drive by allowing everyone above 18 to be vaccinated from May 1.
