Starting from 8 PM today, people aged 12 to 17 in South Korea are once again able to book COVID-19 vaccines.
The initial round of reservations ended, but as students are returning to classrooms and with the risk of infection among younger people increasing, the government has decided to allow more bookings.
Reservations can be up until December 31st online via the KDCA website or by calling 1339 with shots to begin from next Monday.
The same rules from the first round will apply whereby 12 to 17-year-olds need permission from a parent or guardian before booking.
And as of today, over 40 percent of people aged 12 to 17 have received one COVID-19 vaccine shot and 15.4 percent are fully vaccinated.
