November 13 According to Korea Broadcasting International (KBS), the South Korean government held a closed-door meeting on the 12th to convene the first advisory committee meeting to purchase the Coronavirus vaccine.
The analysis believes that the meeting that day focused on the safety of Coronavirus vaccine currently being developed, and discussed the effectiveness, price, transportation and supply period of the vaccine.
The South Korean government aims to ensure that 60% of the population can vaccinate Coronavirus vaccine. The Coronavirus prevention authority has decided that even if the contract is paid in advance for pre-purchase, it will ensure a sufficient amount of vaccine.
South Korea has secured one third of Coronavirus vaccine by participating in the COVAX Facility, an international vaccine joint purchase program. The remaining vaccines will be ensured through consultation with individual pharmaceutical companies.
