[아시아경제 최대열 기자] Vaccination against COVID-19, centered on large business sites, will begin on the 27th. 43 large business establishments with affiliated clinics, employing more than 300,000 people.
On the 11th, the Central Disaster and Safety Countermeasures Headquarters received a report from the Ministry of Employment and Labor of the workplace vaccination plan containing this information. In the past, the government has been receiving vaccinations mainly from workplaces that can inoculate themselves, such as affiliated clinics.
The Ministry of Labor said, “In collaboration with the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, we have decided to promote self-vaccination of workplaces to secure herd immunity at an early stage.” The Ministry of Labor selected workplaces with affiliated clinics among places that are vulnerable to quarantine, such as a 3-mil (closed, dense, close) environment, operating 24 hours a day.
According to the industry, even within the same company, the inoculation personnel were selected based on certain criteria, such as the same factory that shares the working environment. Employees who work in the same space, such as in-house subcontractors, can also be vaccinated. A total of 305,004 people were vaccinated in this way. They are vaccinated with moderna.
Earlier, the quarantine authorities announced the inoculation plan for the third quarter (July to September) and said that among large factories such as steel and chemicals, where 24 hours operation is essential, they will receive inoculation through an affiliated clinic for the convenience of vaccination. Vaccines are supplied by the quarantine authorities and there is no separate inoculation fee (implementation cost).
