US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a booster dose for the Janssen vaccine and set the dose interval to be 2 months.

The Korean government is reviewing additional vaccinations with Pfizer or Moderna vaccines for 1.47 million domestic Janssen recipients, but the vaccination interval has not yet been determined.

[Jung-Ik Hong / Head of Vaccination Management Team, Vaccination Promotion Team: (Jansens vaccinated) There are reports that the average neutralizing ability is maintained for about 240 days in 18-55 years of age, and there are reports that the binding antibody increases after additional vaccination. We will summarize the results (announcement will be made.)] If the

vaccination interval is set to two months as in the United States, booster vaccination may start immediately from the next month.

Those who receive the viral vector vaccine, AstraZeneca, will also receive a booster dose from Pfizer or Moderna.

[Jeong Eun-kyung/Director of the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: According to the Vaccination Specialist Committee, we are considering adding an mRNA vaccine to the viral vector vaccine.] The

quarantine authorities will go through the Specialized Vaccination Committee next week, followed by Janssen, AstraZeneca, and Pfizer. , will be announcing a booster vaccination plan for Moderna Vaccine.

Meanwhile, research to utilize domestically developed vaccines for future booster vaccinations will also begin.

It is conducted as a clinical trial by researchers to measure the preventive effect by actually inoculating 500 people who have completed the vaccination with a domestic vaccine that is undergoing phase 3 clinical trial.
