The reservation rate for 12-15 year olds is still low at 26.4%… Interested in whether reservations and vaccination rates will rise?
Booster shot when immunity is low… A booster shot is possible with residual vaccines such as Janssen vaccinated people and those in their 50s
(Seoul = Yonhap News) Reporter Shinseon-mi Kim Seo-young = Targets 12-15 years old (born 2006-2009) who are in the 6th grade of elementary school to the 3rd grade of middle school on the 1st of next month when the quarantine system is switched to a ‘step-by-step recovery’ (with Corona) Vaccination against COVID-19 begins.
According to the Corona 19 Vaccination Response Promotion Team on the 31st, vaccinations for 12-15 year-olds who made a reservation from the 18th will start on the 1st of next month.
This is due to the fact that high school high school students started getting vaccinated against COVID-19 in July, and the vaccination was sequentially expanded to children and adolescents aged 12 to 17 from the 18th of this month. Among them, the 16-17-year-olds were the first to receive the vaccine from the 18th.
As of 00:00 the previous day, the reservation rate for 12-15 year olds is 26.4% (493,55 reservations), which is rather low.
Children aged 12 to 15 who have made an appointment will receive the Pfizer vaccine at an entrusted medical institution from the 1st to the 27th of the following month.
However, it remains to be seen whether or not it will affect the youth vaccination reservation rate as a report was reported to the quarantine authorities that a teenage male presumed to be a high school student the day before was vaccinated with COVID-19 and apparently died.
This teenage man was reported to have died on the 27th of this month, 75 days after receiving the Pfizer vaccine on August 13th. The relationship has not yet been revealed.”
Experts were cautious about this, saying that it should be judged based on the epidemiological investigation, such as whether there were specific symptoms suspicious of causality during the 75 days between the date of vaccination and the date of death.
Regarding the fact that the deceased student did not have any particular underlying disease, an expert who requested anonymity said, “In general, there are no underlying diseases that can be considered as an underlying disease in the high school age group, except for serious diseases such as leukemia, so we need to take a closer look.” The government should disclose the details of the epidemiological investigation as soon as possible, as public anxiety may increase ahead of the vaccination.”
In order for the domestic vaccination completion rate to exceed 80% and reach the target of 85%, the authorities report that children and adolescents as well as unvaccinated adults need to be vaccinated.
Accordingly, it is recommended that children and adolescents with underlying diseases be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Earlier, the government vaccinated about 630,000 high school seniors and faculty members.
The first inoculation took place from July 19 to 30, and the second inoculation from August 9 to 20, and 94.6% (613,59 people) of the subjects completed the inoculation. However, the number of teachers and staff is also included in the inoculation group, so it is not a separate count for high school students.
As of the 28th, a total of 8 serious adverse reactions (4 cases of suspected anaphylaxis and 4 cases of major adverse reactions including admission to the intensive care unit) have been reported in the age group under the age of 17 so far, and there have been no deaths.
For 18-29 years of age, 16 deaths and 1,372 major adverse events were reported.
On the other hand, from the 1st of next month, booster shots for immunocompromised patients, such as leukemia patients, organ transplant patients, and those taking immunosuppressants, will also start.
The authorities will give booster vaccinations to those who are immunocompromised, two months after completing the primary vaccination.
In principle, the booster vaccination can be given 6 months after the primary vaccination, but in the case of immunocompromised persons and Janssen vaccinated persons, it is exceptionally possible to start 2 months after the vaccination effect in consideration of the vaccination effect.
Then, from the 8th of the following month, the Janssen inoculation will start, and from the 10th, the inpatients/inpatients and workers of nursing hospitals and facilities will start receiving additional vaccinations.
From the 15th of next month, workers in hospitals or higher medical institutions, those in their 50s, those with underlying diseases, and the priority group (police, military, etc.) will receive additional vaccinations.
Previously, on the 12th and 30th, workers in hospitals for treatment of COVID-19 received booster vaccinations.
Those eligible for booster vaccination can check the type of vaccine to be vaccinated, such as Pfizer or Moderna, when making a reservation in advance.
Janssen vaccinated persons, those in their 50s, those with underlying diseases, and the occupational group with priority vaccinations may receive additional vaccinations with residual vaccines.
In the case of using residual vaccines at medical institutions, additional vaccinations are possible from the 1st of next month by using the preliminary list. Additional vaccinations are available from the middle of next month through same-day reservations on Naver-Kakao social networking service (SNS).
