Still, the speed of vaccination is accelerating.

By yesterday (day 5), nearly 300,000 people had been vaccinated.

As the nursing facility vaccination rates increase, visits that were forbidden are allowed, although very limited.

Reporter Kim Jung-woo on the report.


Yesterday, the number of people who received the Corona 19 vaccine a day was 67,000, and the cumulative number of inoculations increased to 296,000 in 8 days after the vaccination started.

By vaccination targets, about 165,000 people, including medical staff and patients at nursing hospitals, had the highest vaccination rate of 81% after completing the first vaccination, and about 53,000 people, about half of the subjects, received the vaccine at nursing homes. .

As the number of inoculations increases, the number of suspected adverse reactions is increasing.

Up to yesterday, nearly 3,000 reports were received, with minor symptoms such as headache, fever, and nausea.

There were no additional deaths other than the previous seven.

[Lee Sang-won/Director of Epidemiological Investigation Analysis, Central Defense Response Headquarters: There were 24 suspected cases of anaphylaxis and 3 cases of serious suspicion, and 7 cases of death were reported, and the investigation is underway.]

The high vaccination rates of nursing hospitals and nursing facilities are high. Visits to these hospitals and facilities will be limited from the 9th of the month.

However, it is limited to family members of patients who are unconscious or on the verge of dying and must submit a negative Corona 19 confirmation before visiting.

[Roh Dong-hwan/Chief of nursing hospital: I plan to visit about one person per hour.

We plan to make a reservation in advance and visit a limited space in a well-ventilated place with safety devices.] The

medical association said that if a fever rises above 38.5 degrees Celsius after vaccination with AstraZeneca, there is little effect on antibody formation. I advised you to take a'acetaminophen'-based antipyretic.
