Until now, only people living in nursing hospitals and medical staff have received the vaccine, but from tomorrow, those born before December 31, 1946 are eligible for the vaccine.
Our reporter is out at the Seoul Vaccination Center.
Reporter Deok-Hyun Kim, you must have already reached out to the subjects, but let’s arrange the vaccination procedure first.
<Reporter> You can see
the vaccination center with vaccination booths behind me.
Vaccinations will begin tomorrow at 9 am at 46 vaccination centers nationwide, including this one.
The Pfizer vaccine to be used for vaccination was transferred to each region, and an additional 250,000 people entered the country this morning.
When you arrive at the vaccination center, you will be asked if you have any underlying diseases on the prepared screening sheet.
Then, you will receive an injection through a consultation procedure with a medical staff.
After that, you can watch for abnormal reactions for about 15 to 30 minutes, and if there are no problems, you can go home.
The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Chung Eun-kyung is also scheduled to receive the AstraZeneca vaccine at the Cheongju Public Health Center tomorrow morning.
Especially, from tomorrow, older people will start getting the vaccine, so let's tell you what you need to pay more attention to before and after getting the vaccine.
Yes, you should check when the vaccination is scheduled and visit the vaccination center according to the schedule.
You should avoid high-intensity exercise, long bathing, and drinking, etc., which may cause strain on the body the day before. When it is difficult to come directly to the vaccination center, you can use the shuttle bus provided by the local government.
If you experience mild symptoms such as fever or body aches after vaccination, you should take an antipyretic and take a break.
It is recommended to stay with family or acquaintances for a day or two after vaccination in case of emergency.
If you have any questions about vaccination, you can get information by calling the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or the local government's call center.
