S. Korea lays out plans to secure 30 million vaccines Updated: 2020-09-15 10:53:39 KST

The South Korean government has laid out its plans to secure COVID-19 vaccines for some 30-million people.
That's 60 percent of the country's total population.
At the cabinet meeting on Tuesday, the Prime Minister said the government is working on two tracks to secure the supply purchasing vaccines produced outside the country, while supporting domestic research.
For the first batch, the government will acquire vaccines for 10-million from international vaccine supplier, the COVAX Facility and 20-million more from private firms.
Seoul will turn in the legal documents for this by Friday, and pay a deposit of 146-million U.S. dollars to COVAX by October ninth.
