Vaccines used for in-house vaccinations at large corporations, starting at the end of this month, are being changed from Moderna to Pfizer. This is due to the delay in supply and demand for moderna vaccines due to problems such as quality inspection and delivery.
Samsung Electronics announced on the 19th that the vaccine used for self-vaccination of employees at workplaces had been changed from Moderna to Pfizer.
From the 27th, Samsung Electronics plans to start in-house vaccination at its Suwon plant, as well as workplaces with in-house affiliated clinics such as Gumi, Gwangju, Giheung, Hwaseong, Pyeongtaek, and Cheonan. The target audience is employees aged 18 to 59 who work at the relevant workplace and employees of resident partner companies.
A Samsung Electronics official said, “We have recently received a notice from the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that the vaccine to be supplied will be changed.
Samsung SDI, Samsung Display, Samsung Engineering, and other Samsung affiliates also announced recently that they decided to change their inoculation vaccines from Moderna to Pfizer.
Kia was also notified that it would change the vaccine used for inoculation at domestic plants from Moderna to Pfizer starting on the 30th, and Hyundai Motor Company also announced that it would change its inoculation vaccine at the Namyang Research Institute from Moderna to Pfizer.
SK hynix and LG Display were informed by the quarantine authorities that there is a possibility that their inoculation vaccines at their workplaces could be changed from Moderna to Pfizer. When the KCDC guidelines are finally decided, additional notices will be made in-house, the company explained.
In order to speed up the vaccination rate and promote convenience, the quarantine authorities are promoting their own vaccinations, centered on business sites with affiliated doctors. When the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention supplies vaccines and syringes to affiliated clinics within the workplace, the affiliated clinics inoculate the vaccine according to their own plan.
