January 22 According to a report by South Korea Radio International (KBS), South Korea is expected to introduce the coronavirus vaccine for the first time in early February.
In order to carry out vaccination, the government will set up 250 coronavirus vaccination centers across the country.
It is reported that South Korea is scheduled to introduce 50,000 coronavirus vaccines first through the COVID-19 vaccine co-purchase consortium, the COVAX Facility, which is likely to be Pfizer.
Pfizer vaccine must be stored at minus 70 degrees and Modena vaccine must be stored at minus 20 degrees.
Therefore, a cryogenic circulation system must be built and a separate vaccination site must be set up.
At present, the South Korean government is targeting 250 coronavirus vaccination centers to select locations, and 150 candidate sites have been selected.
According to the report, the government has also set standards for the staff responsible for vaccination.
Based on the daily vaccination of 600 people per vaccination center, including 4 doctors, 8 nurses and 10 administrators, a vaccination center needs at least 22 personnel, and at least 5,500 personnel, including medical personnel, is required based on 250 vaccination centers.
