“The vaccination is aimed at completing the vaccination for all citizens over the age of 18 by November of this year,” he said. “Citizens, please follow the guidance of the call center operated by Jeonju to receive the vaccination safely when the vaccination time comes.”

Jeonju vaccination is carried out step by step. First, from the 26th to the next month, the 1st vaccination targeting a total of 14,000 people will be in progress. Vaccination targets are susceptible to group infections and are hospitalized, residents and workers under the age of 65 in nursing hospitals and nursing facilities, mental care and rehabilitation facilities with a high fatality rate when infected, workers in treatment hospitals for COVID-19 patients, workers in high-risk medical institutions, and the first response to Corona 19 Agents, etc.

A total of 26 in-visit vaccination teams, consisting of three doctors, nurses, and administrative personnel, will visit these facilities in person and receive a vaccination in the order of inpatients, medical personnel, and workers after sufficient preliminary examinations and information on contraindications.

In the case of nursing hospitals that are supplied with a separate vaccine, they receive their own vaccination from the beginning of the next month. Of the total subjects, 97.9% agreed to vaccination, and a total of 35 sites and 4085 persons (583 inpatients, 3502 workers) were the subjects.
