Authorities in South Korea announced on Saturday, a day after the launch of the national COVID-19 vaccination program, that a new sophisticated, locally produced syringe model would maximize the number of doses given in a single ampoule of ser, reports Yonhap, according to Agerpres.
Thus, using the new LDS (low dead space) syringes, up to seven doses can be extracted from a vaccine tube produced by Pfizer, and up to 12 from the one produced by AstraZeneca – says the Korean Agency for Disease Control and Prevention (KDCA). ).
So far, it has been estimated that up to 6 people can be vaccinated from one Pfizer / BioNTech vaccine vial, and 10 from the AstraZeneca.
However, the number of people who can be vaccinated from a vial may vary depending on the skills of medical staff, authorities note.
South Korea, which aims to achieve “herd immunity” by November, has purchased enough vaccines to immunize 79 million people, far more than the country’s 52 million population, Yonhap said.
