Frontline workers should be next for COVID shots: CDC

An advisory panel to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday recommended that key employees and people age 75 and older should be on the front lines to receive a COVID-19 vaccine.
30 million people in the U.S. are on the front lines, including first responders, teachers, food and agriculture, manufacturing, U.S. mail, public transportation, and grocers.
The committee voted 13: 1 for the move.
Overall, this would bring the total number of people eligible for the vaccine in the next round to 49 million.
The next round of approximately 57 million non-frontline employees is expected to include media, finance, energy, IT and communications employees, those aged 65 to 74, and those aged 16 to 64 at high risk.
