NEGVAC action plan

The National Expert Group on Vaccine Administration (NEGVAC) action plan is a COVID-19 vaccination strategy of the central government. It is to cover 30 crore people, including around 3 core frontline workers. These include healthcare workers, state and central police departments etc. The policy is going to be implemented after the national drug regulator gives the emergency use authorisation to one or more vaccine candidates that have been applied for it. Final approval for this plan is yet to be given by the government.
