Three months after the start of the COVID-19 vaccine, the number of first doses exceeded 10% of the population.
As the AstraZeneca vaccine began to be administered to senior citizens between the ages of 65 and 74, the number of first doses increased by more than 1 million within two days.
There is also a high interest in residual vaccines that can be received without reservations and visits.

I heard that the inoculation was done on the weekend at the clinic there, is the vaccination over now?
Yes, it is.
At the internal medicine clinic where I am, the vaccination started at 9 am and ended around 12:30 in the afternoon.
All the medical staff are now out of work.
Today, from 9 am to 12 pm, 12 people were booked every hour, and a total of 48 people were vaccinated with AstraZeneca.
On weekdays, 96 people were vaccinated a day, but only half were vaccinated on Saturday.
The number of people vaccinated against the elderly between the ages of 65 and 74 has been on the rise since the 27th.
On the first day (the 27th), about 657,000 people completed the first dose, and yesterday, about 542,000 people received the first dose.
As a result, the number of vaccinated people increased significantly over the two days, and it was counted that more than 5.23 million people, or more than 10% of the nation, had completed the corona 19 vaccination from the first dose alone.
It has been 91 days since vaccination started in Korea on February 26th.
Today, Saturday, the number of reservations for the COVID-19 vaccine was counted at 120,000.
More and more people are not getting vaccinated after booking or want to get the remaining vaccine, that is, the remaining vaccine?
Inquiries about reservations about getting the remaining vaccine are continuing from each hospital.
At the clinic where I am, about 100 people are on the waiting list for vaccinations, and calls are coming in.
Yesterday (28th), about 60,000 people were vaccinated through the preliminary list of consigned medical institutions, and about 3,000 people were vaccinated through the Naver or Kakao app.
So, more than one in 10 people who got vaccinated yesterday got the residual vaccine.
However, there is not a lot of residual vaccine.
This seems to be because most of the reservations for vaccination have not been canceled and are being received normally.
From the 7th of next month, immunizations for seniors aged 60 to 64, kindergartens, daycare centers, and first and second grade teachers and caregivers over 30 years of age will also begin, and the speed of vaccination is expected to accelerate.
Seniors between the ages of 60 and 74 can pre-book their vaccinations until the 3rd of the next month.
So far, the reservation rate for seniors is 67.2%.
The quarantine authorities plan to achieve the goal of completing the primary vaccination of 13 million people by the end of June by conducting vaccinations according to the current trend.
