The start of the domestic’Corona 19′ vaccination came two days ahead. From the 24th, AstraZeneca vaccine will be shipped from the SK Bioscience factory located in Andong, Gyeongbuk, and will be vaccinated from the 26th. In addition, the Pfizer vaccine will be administered from the 27th after arriving at Incheon International Airport on the same day.
The government aims to complete more than 70% of the people’s vaccinations by this fall and create a’collective immunity’ that can naturally suppress the spread of infection by November.
The total number of vaccines secured by the government is for a total of 79 million people. As each vaccine is supplied to Korea sequentially over a period of 1 to 3 quarters, it is possible for people to return to their daily lives before this winter comes only if the people are vaccinated in time according to the government’s plan. So, taking a hypothetical 7-member family as an example, I will specifically point out when my vaccination turn will be.
Assuming a seven-member family consisting of a 70-year-old father, a 63-year-old mother, an eldest son in 40s, two children, and a second son in 30s, first of all, the timing of vaccinations for parents is completely different. 63-year-old mothers can receive vaccinations from the third quarter, when the vaccinations of 18-64 years old begin. The type of vaccination for this subject group was not determined. If the mother is a nursing hospital or nursing facility resident, the AstraZeneca vaccine will be available from the 26th. From this day on, the government will begin vaccinating AstraZeneca vaccination to 280,271 people, including hospitals, residents, and workers under the age of 65 in nursing hospitals and facilities.
Fathers aged 70 can receive vaccinations at the end of March or in the second quarter of age 65 or older. If you are in a nursing hospital or nursing facility, you can get the vaccine from April instead of the 26th. The government has delayed vaccination for elderly people aged 65 or older, even if they are residents of the same nursing hospital or facility, due to the lack of clinical data to prove the’effectiveness’ of the AstraZeneca vaccine for the elderly. Clinical data is expected to be confirmed at the end of March. In this case, vaccinations over the age of 65 are administered as early as the end of March or from the second quarter. However, the type of vaccination has yet to be determined. If AstraZeneca vaccination is not feasible, Pfizer vaccine may be used.
If your 43-year-old son is a doctor treating a corona19 patient and a hypertensive patient, the earliest vaccination time will be on the 27th. Medical staff at the forefront of COVID-19 treatment are among the government’s top vaccination groups. The vaccine is manufactured by Pfizer. If you are not a doctor, you can get vaccinations from the third quarter as an adult chronically ill. Likewise, some people are between 18 and 64 years of age, who receive vaccinations from the third quarter.
If your 44-year-old daughter-in-law is a pharmacist and suffers from diabetes, it is an adult chronically ill and is eligible for the third quarter vaccination. However, because you are a pharmacy worker, you can get the second quarter vaccination.
Dujae’s son, 39 years old, is a soldier and is subject to vaccination in the third quarter because he is between 18 and 64 years old. Military personnel are also eligible for the third quarter vaccination. The government planned to provide vaccinations to soldiers, police, fire and social infrastructure workers from the third quarter.
The 19-year-old granddaughter (18-64 years old) is an adult and can be vaccinated in the third quarter, but the 16-year-old high school student’s grandchildren are children and adolescents who are not yet in the government’s vaccination plan.
However, the possibility of vaccination is open as the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety’s verification advisory group recommended that the use of Pfizer’s vaccine on the 22nd is appropriate for those aged 16 or older. In the future, if the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety final approval and the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention vaccination committee final approval, high school student grandchildren will also be able to vaccinate. The vaccination period is likely to be in the same third quarter as for adults.
If these vaccination subjects do not get the vaccine in time, the possible vaccination time will be pushed to the fourth quarter.
In a regular briefing on the 22nd, Chung Eun-kyung said, “Managing the vaccination rate is difficult with the government’s power alone.” I will manage it.”
