According to a report by South Korea Radio International on February 1, the Pfizer coronavirus vaccine arrived in South Korea as early as mid-February.
During this period, the South Korean government has been saying that it will introduce the coronavirus vaccine through the COVAX Facility in the first quarter of this year, but with only two months left in the first quarter, the specific number and supply time of vaccines have not been finalized.
In this case, the COVID-19 vaccine guarantee mechanism officially notified South Korea of its specific plan on January 30.
According to the coronavirus vaccine guarantee mechanism, 117,000 doses of Pfizer vaccine available for 60,000 people will arrive in South Korea in mid-February.
Subsequently, AstraZeneca vaccine, which can be vaccinated for at least 300,000 people, will also arrive in South Korea in February and March.
