South Korea's vaccination campaign is picking up a head of steam.
Authorities say the country could achieve full inoculation of 70 percent of the population within around 10 days.
After surpassing the 60 percent mark on Tuesday, the vaccination rate continues to speed up.
Officials say the country would most likely reach 70 percent in the week of October 25th ahead of the start of the government's "living with COVID-19" strategy.
From November, South Korea is set to gradually ease restrictions and potentially introduce vaccine incentives.
