South Korea’s Central Epidemic Prevention and Control Headquarters reported on Sunday that after 48 people were vaccinated against COVID-19 in the past 24 hours, there were suspected abnormal reactions. A total of more than 10,000 vaccinated persons had related symptoms, and 21 of them died. The 15 deaths were not related to the vaccine. The Central Disaster Safety Countermeasures Headquarters held a meeting on the same day. Those who had an abnormal reaction after the vaccination started on April 1 can directly apply for leave without a doctor’s certificate.
In view of the possibility of abnormal reactions within 10 to 12 hours of vaccination, South Korea announced earlier that people can take a day off on the day following vaccination. In addition, people can apply for a two-day vacation after an abnormal reaction after the injection.
Since South Korea started vaccination on the 26th of last month, there has been about 1 case of suspected abnormal reaction, accounting for 1.29% of the total number of vaccinations in the country, of which AstraZeneca vaccine accounts for the majority. The picture shows South Korean Prime Minister Ding Shijun vaccinated last Friday.
