more than 14 million people receiving the vaccine at least once, the government has released a vaccination plan for the third quarter. Those in their 50s will be vaccinated from the end of next month, and those in their 40s will start getting vaccinated in August. It is not yet decided who will get which vaccine.
First of all, this is reporter Park Soo-jin.
The first to receive the vaccine among the general public in the third quarter is between the ages of 55 and 59.
Reservations start in the 3rd week of July, and vaccinations start from the 5th week of July.
Then, for those aged 50-54, reservations start from the fourth week of July, and vaccinations start in early August.
There are 8.57 million people in their 50s.
[Jang Kyung-ja (57 years old): Regardless of the type of Janssen or AstraZeneca, if you can get the first vaccination as soon as possible and feel safe (I hope)]
[20 million (53 years old): (Vaccine) It is convenient to go anywhere, I want to get it soon.] In
August, when the 50's vaccination was completed, the 18-49 year olds will come.
With over 20 million people, it runs through September.
During this period, workplace-based inoculations are also provided centered on companies with affiliated medical institutions.
The biggest feature of vaccination under 40 years old is that it is a first-come-first-served reservation regardless of age.
[Jung Eun-kyung / Director of the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: We will group people under 40 into one target group and inoculate them. We are currently examining how to spread the concentration of reservations.]
Which vaccines the general public under
the age of
50 get will depend on the supply and demand situation at that time.
The amount introduced in July is 10 million doses, and four vaccines are coming in: AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna, and Janssen.
In order to prepare for university entrance and return to school for the second semester, inoculation at the educational site starts earlier.
High school seniors will receive the Pfizer vaccine from the fourth week of July, and elementary, middle, and high school staff and caregivers will also receive the vaccine within July.
Other students, such as retakers, will be vaccinated from August.
Moderna vaccination started for the first time today (17th) for health care workers under the age of 30, and by the end of this month, another 56,000 doses for the second vaccination are expected.
