From notification to inoculation, S. Korea will keep in touch with its citizens for COVID-19 vaccination Updated: 2021-02-25 11:04:49 KST

South Korea's vaccination rollout starts on Friday.
Here's how it's going to work.
For the second quarter of this year, the vaccines will be for people on the priority list.
Those up for the shots will be reached via phone, text, or a messenger app.
Specific information will be provided a few days beforehand.
But sign-up will be a must for people who are in line to get their shot in the third quarter like most of the country's population.
People can sign up using the COVID-19 KDCA website, current COVID-19 hotline, or at health centers nationwide.
Available times and locations will be provided for people to choose from as authorities are trying to prevent large lines forming at vaccination centers.
On the day, make sure to be on time, at the correct location and with your ID.
After arriving, it's important that the screening questionnaire gets answered thoroughly and correctly.
This will decide whether someone should avoid the vaccine or whether they will need extra care afterwards.
After the jab, recipients will be asked to stay for 15 to 30 minutes to make sure no allergic reactions occur and in case immediate medical attention is needed.
Beginning in March, the authorities say the system will be more organized and that transparent information will be provided on the status of the vaccinations.
