  • People at risk of developing serious illness and/or dying from it;
  • Pregnant and nursing women;
  • Children under 5 years of age;
  • Persons with disabilities;
  • Persons with chronic non-communicable diseases;
  • People with a disease or pharmacological treatment that suppresses their immune system.
