<Anchor> The

government announced that it has improved the reservation system ahead of the vaccine reservations for those aged 18 to 49, which will start next week. Identity verification is now easier than ever, and you can't make reservations for your family or anyone else.

For more details, reporter Nam Joo-hyun will deliver.


16.21 million people aged 18 to 49, whose reservations start on the 9th, are more than double the number of those in their 50s.

In order to prevent access failure, the government has entrusted the self-authentication process to a private company following the 10-part reservation system.

On the reservation access screen, you can verify your identity with Kakao, Naver, and Pass apps in addition to your existing mobile phone and certificate.

As the authentication is done in advance outside the government system, the subsequent reservation processing will be faster.

[Kim Eun-joo / Director, Korea Intelligent Information Society Agency: When using simple authentication such as Naver, Kakao, Pass, etc., please obtain a certificate in advance at least one day in advance.] We

also expanded the server to increase the number of transactions per hour from 300,000 to 1 million. I increased it to a gun.

Simultaneous access and proxy reservations through multiple terminals, which were cited as the cause of 10 million simultaneous connections at the time of booking for 50 units, were blocked.

You can only authenticate yourself once every 10 minutes, and if you try to make a reservation with a PC and a mobile phone at the same time, access is blocked except for the equipment that was initially authenticated.

[Na Seong-woong / Deputy Director of the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: If 2 million people log in at one time, it is expected that there will be a waiting period of up to 35-50 minutes.]

Vaccinations for those under 40 will begin in earnest from the end of


month, but the Ministry of Education will In the College Scholastic Ability Test, which is held, even those who have not been vaccinated can take the test.

In addition, unlike last year, we decided to install paper partitions only during lunch time, not during exam time.
