As the first COVID-19 vaccines are rolled out around the world, HIV/AIDS experts and advocates have sought to reassure those living with HIV that they can safely get the coronavirus vaccination. Some countries have recommended that HIV-positive people should be given priority for vaccination against COVID-19 once the most at-risk groups – the elderly and frontline healthcare workers – have received their shots. Germany has said HIV-positive people will be included in a third tier of priority patients – along with the over-60s, people with conditions such as heart, kidney and liver disease, and those working in key sectors like education. In Britain, people living with HIV will be included in the sixth priority group for vaccination, after those aged 65 and over, healthcare workers and people with more severe health conditions.
