President Moon Jae-in visited on Friday a coronavirus vaccination site in Seoul's Mapo District, where he observed people receiving their first shots.
He also spoke with the first vaccine recipient there, Kim Yoon-tae, head of the Purme Foundation Nexon Children's Rehabilitation Hospital in Seoul.
Moon was accompanied by Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency chief Jeong Eun-kyeong, who briefed the president on the government vaccination plan.
Together, they inspected the center's vaccine-related facilities, including the preparation room and the adverse reaction observation room.
Cheong Wa Dae said the president sought to encourage medical personnel on the frontlines of the country's fight against COVID-19 and promote public participation in the inoculation program.
