[아시아경제 호남취재본부 정승현 기자] The city of Mokpo, Jeollanam-do announced on the 7th that it is vaccinating Pfizer vaccines at the vaccination center installed at the Mokpo Indoor Gymnasium for citizens aged 75 or older.

The city explained that the current vaccination is being carried out sequentially from the dong where the number of the population aged 75 or older is large, depending on the situation of the vaccine supply and demand by the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency.

From April 1st, the second vaccination was completed for 4,836 people, including Yongdang 1-dong, Sang-dong, Mokwon-dong, Yonghae-dong, Wonsan-dong, Dongmyeong-dong, and elderly facilities.

The second phase targets 3,317 people, including Sinheung-dong, Yeondong, Iro-dong, Bukhang-dong, and Sanjeong-dong, and the first vaccination is scheduled to be completed by May 10th.

In order for antibodies to be formed, the second vaccination must be performed on the 21st day after the first vaccination, so the city plans to complete the second vaccination by May 31st.

The third stage is planned to be carried out sequentially from the end of May to 4,752 people in 12 buildings, including Yudal-dong, in accordance with the distribution of vaccines from the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and complete both the first and second vaccinations by June.

The city is making efforts to increase the inoculation rate by operating a shuttle bus in consideration of the age of vaccination targets, and organizing guides with bankbooks and city office officials for smooth vaccination.

In addition, as there is a limit to the supply and demand of vaccines, we are working hard to cooperate with the relevant departments and the administrative welfare center to prevent unvaccinated people from occurring among reservations.

In particular, in case of canceling vaccination on the day of vaccination due to health reasons, the remaining amount was inoculated to the vaccination support worker at the vaccination center in accordance with the guidelines of the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in order to minimize the situation of discarding the previously thawed vaccine.

A city official said, “Please understand that the entire vaccination plan cannot be established because the vaccine is not distributed all at once.” “We plan to complete vaccination for the elderly aged 75 or older by the end of June at the latest. I ask you to follow personal quarantine rules such as distance and wearing a mask until immunity is secured by vaccination.”

On the other hand, as of the 5th, the total number of inoculations in Mokpo city was 2292, with 13,300 AstraZeneca vaccinations and 6,992 Pfizer vaccinations.
