Vaccination is planned in particular for the following target groups of adults (in decreasing order of priority in case of limited vaccine availability) :

1. Vulnerable persons (elderly and persons with prior illnesses, excluding pregnant women);
2. Health personnel in contact with patients and personnel accompanying vulnerable persons;
3. Close contacts (household members) of vulnerable persons;
4. People residing in a community institution that presents a risk of infection and potential for an outbreak (e.g., institutions for people with disabilities) and staff.
5. All other adults who would like to be vaccinated.

Children and adolescents are not yet part of the target groups of the vaccination strategy because the results of the corresponding studies for this age group are not yet available.

They need to add Front Line workers. Store clerks, Bus Drivers, Police. Firefighters etc, should follow Health and care home workers (including frontaliers). Then it should be vulnerable people a d family members, then everyone else.
I disagree - vulnerable should be number 1 - followed by healthcare and essential workers. If the vulnerable are protected, it will better protect those workers.
