100 days of vaccination against COVID-19.

Vaccines are getting one step closer to their daily routine.

Those who have been vaccinated at least once can gather with their immediate family and eight or more people from this month, and from next month they can take off their masks outdoors.

Those who have completed the second vaccination can also hold private gatherings of 5 or more from July.

The 'vaccine incentive' is expected to grow further.

The number of people who want to get vaccinated is also increasing rapidly.



'When the hell can I get the vaccine?'

'How can I reserve a residual vaccine?'

For those who are curious but can't find it, <Newsship> looked into it instead.

The exact third quarter (July-September) plan is expected to come out in the third week of June.

Based on what has been published so far.


Q. Teenagers

High school seniors, who are preparing for the entrance exam, are expected to receive the Pfizer vaccine after taking their final exams in mid-July.

In Korea, Pfizer Vaccine is the only vaccine licensed for those aged 16 and over.

The timing of inoculation for all students except for high school students has not been decided yet.

A detailed schedule will be announced when the third quarter vaccination plan is announced.



According to the year of birth, the corona vaccine can be vaccinated for those who are 18 years of age or older.

This is because, when the vaccine manufacturers first designed it, it was mostly intended for people 18 years of age or older, which could change depending on further clinical outcomes.

Q. 20s

According to the government announcement, and unless you are a medical worker or military person, you will be the last to receive the vaccine by age.

It is expected that this will happen in the third quarter at the latest, but that is the case for now.



The reason why people in their twenties are so late is because there is an age limit on the AstraZeneca vaccination due to concerns about the side effect of thrombus that hardens blood.

In all age groups over 30, the positive effect of vaccination is greater than the risk of rare blood clots, but according to the expert decision that the risk of side effects is higher in the 20s, the AstraZeneca vaccine is only administered to those in their 30s

Those in their 20s are not eligible for Janssen vaccines, so they have to wait until they have enough mRNA vaccines from Pfizer and Moderna.



Those in their 20s will receive the Pfizer vaccine starting on the 7th, and those in their 20s will also be able to receive the Pfizer vaccine from the end of this month.

The 55,000 doses of Moderna vaccine that arrived on the 1st are also subject to inoculation for those under the age of 30 at hospital-level medical institutions.



It is expected that the general public in their 20s will only be able to receive additional vaccines in the third quarter when Pfizer's 59 million doses, Moderna's 40 million doses, and Janssen and Novavax enter Korea.

Q. 30s

The general public in their 30s will be vaccinated in their 50s in July, and those in their 40s will only be able to get vaccinated.

This includes the majority of women and men who have not made a reservation for Janssen vaccines in advance, except for special occupations such as essential personnel, reserve soldiers, and civil defense personnel.



It wasn't that the 30-somethings didn't have the opportunity to get vaccinated at all.

Reservations for 1 million Janssen coronavirus vaccines provided by the United States from the 1st have ended.

The target population was 3.7 million, including 137,000 military and diplomatic personnel, 530,000 reserve soldiers, and 3.04 million civil defense personnel.

Of these, 900,000 people were selected on a first-come, first-served basis, and the competition for reservations was so fierce that it was called the 'Jansen Notice'.



It is not that there is no way to get a 'residual vaccine', but this will be explained separately below.

Q. 40s

4050 generations between the elderly and those in their 30s.

There was a high degree of dissatisfaction with being excluded from vaccination.

Those in their 40s are expected to be able to apply after the inoculation in their 50s, which starts in July.

Q. 50s

It seems that the door of opportunity will open only in June.

Those in their 50s can be vaccinated first among those who are vaccinated by age starting from the third quarter.

The 50-59 year old vaccination will start in July.

For the exact date when reservations will start, we have to look at the government's plan to be announced in the third week of June.

Q. Over 60

If you don't prefer a specific vaccine, you can get it if you want to.

Advance reservations for AstraZeneca vaccination in the first half of the year ended on the 3rd.

If you have made a reservation in advance, those aged 65 to 74 will be vaccinated from the 27th of last month, and those aged 60 to 64 will be vaccinated from tomorrow (7th).



If you haven't made a reservation yet or because you don't want to get the vaccine, you don't have to worry if you change your mind and want to get it.

This is because the government has made it clear that the vaccination in the first half of the year will be focused on the elderly in their 60s and over, who are at high risk of Corona.



Starting from the 4th, the remaining vaccines are given priority to the elderly aged 60 years or older.

If the Janssen vaccine, which has already been reserved in advance, remains, the elderly are given priority, so you can call or visit a nearby hospital or clinic to inquire.


Q. Who can get the residual vaccine?


People under the age of 30 (those born on or after January 1, 1992) cannot receive the residual vaccine.

This is because the remaining vaccines are only applicable to the AstraZeneca vaccine, so those under the age of 30 were excluded from the list due to concerns about side effects from blood clots.



From June 4, only those over the age of 60 can put their names on the preliminary list of remaining vaccines managed individually by medical institutions.

However, those who have already been placed on the preliminary list of remaining vaccinations will have their reservations maintained until the 9th.

From the 10th, those under the age of 60 will be removed from the preliminary list.

Even before 10 days, there is a possibility that children under the age of 60 will not be vaccinated because priority is given to those aged 60 and over on the preliminary list.

Q. Is 'Residual Vaccine' not available for children under the age of 60?

It is not fundamentally impossible, but it can be said that the possibility is lowered due to the increase in restrictions.

Starting from the 4th, those aged 30 to 59 who want to receive the AstraZeneca residual vaccine can only make a reservation through mobile apps such as Naver or KakaoTalk.

People between the ages of 30 and 59 are no longer allowed to register on the preliminary list by calling or visiting a referral medical institution.



Q. What is the criteria for determining the order of vaccination?

Q. What kind of vaccine will I get?


(* As of June 5. Vaccinations may vary according to government policy)



So far, people over 75 and under 30 are receiving Pfizer, and others are receiving AstraZeneca, but changes are inevitable with the addition of Janssen and Moderna. .

The advantages and disadvantages of vaccines seem to be the criteria for dividing the subjects to be vaccinated.



Experts say that Janssen is relatively advantageous for the elderly and young men when considering the preventive effect and the possibility of side effects.

Moderna and Pfizer have fewer adverse reactions in younger people and are conducting clinical trials in infants and children.

Q. Who is excluded from vaccination?


Those who have been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 under quarantine can be vaccinated after the quarantine is lifted.

In case of acute illness such as fever (above 37.5℃), vaccination should be postponed until symptoms disappear.

Pregnant women and children and adolescents under the age of 18 are excluded from vaccination as there are no safety and efficacy data yet.

Of course, this may change depending on the clinical outcome.


Q. What if I miss the vaccination period?


However, in principle, vaccination ranks that do not consent to vaccination within the due date for refusing vaccination will be given a lower priority.

However, those who were excluded due to fever (37.5℃ or higher) on the day of inoculation can adjust their reservation so that they can receive the inoculation after recovery.
