Since the start of the Corona 19 vaccination in Korea on the 26th of last month, more than 225,000 people have completed the vaccination in a week.

The vaccination rate relative to the domestic population is 0.43%.

When looking at the vaccination rate by vaccination institution and target, the number of residents and workers in nursing hospitals was the highest at 74.7% of all targets.

In the case of nursing homes, the vaccination rate was 40.2%, and in medical institutions above the hospital level, 7.9% completed the vaccination.

Among these, the number of deaths after vaccination increased by two, totaling 7 people.

All of the additional deaths were residents of nursing hospitals with underlying diseases.

Experts point out that nursing hospital residents should take time to look at their health rather than rush to vaccination.

The quarantine authorities are investigating the causality between vaccination and death, but the connection is slim.

The number of suspected adverse reactions reported after vaccination also increased by 860 to 1,578.

Among them, six suspected anaphylaxis, a severe allergic reaction, and one convulsion were included.

Although there are some adverse reactions, the quarantine authorities urged them to actively respond to vaccinations in order as the benefits of getting the vaccine are much greater.
