<Anchor> As you
just heard, the first corona vaccine in Korea will start tomorrow (26th) morning.
Before the first vaccination, there were even political disputes about who would get the vaccine first, but the health authorities said that both workers and residents in nursing hospitals and facilities across the country fit at the same time, and that everyone is the first vaccination.
This news is reporter Kim Hyung-rae.
<Reporter> The Korea
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (KCDC) said that everyone is the first to receive the AstraZeneca vaccination starting tomorrow.
This means that there is no 1st vaccination that specifies who is the first vaccination target.
This is because the vaccinations are given at 9 am tomorrow at nursing hospitals, facilities, and health centers across the country.
[Eun-kyung Jung/Director of the Korea Disease Control Center: Although it has such a meaning that we are the 1st vaccination, the 1st vaccination is a situation where both workers and residents of the facility are eligible for the first vaccination.]
Unlike other countries, the 1st vaccination is given. For reasons not specified, the Agency has not given specific explanations.
As controversy continues over who gets the vaccine first in Korea, some interpretations say that he felt burdened to designate a person as the first inoculation.
In the UK, where the world's first vaccination was performed, a 91-year-old grandmother was the first vaccination, and in the United States, an immigrant black nurse was the first vaccination.
Prime Minister Netanyahu in Israel and President Joko Widodo in Indonesia received the first vaccines.
