This rollout will probably cover those who work within the sector.

HIGHER HEALTH is responsible for handling health protocols for the pandemic within the sector and is the entity in charge of the screening app used on campuses. They have now obtained data on staff per campus and their geographical locations across districts and sub-districts, which will be used for the vaccine rollout.

The briefing can be viewed through the following channels:

Some individuals have already been vaccinated within the sector should they have fallen under the categories of people who were allowed to get vaccinated through the national rollout. Health faculty members also received vaccines when healthcare workers did.
