Adults aged 60 to 74 who were unable to get their first coronavirus vaccine shot during the rollout in the first half of the year will get another chance to get vaccinated this month.

Reservations for this broad age group (those born between January 1, 1947, and December 31, 1961) opened on Monday via the national vaccine registration website (ncvr.kdca.go.kr) and the KDCA's 1339 hotline.

According to the government's vaccination task force, reservations will be taken until August 31.

Inoculations will begin on Thursday and run through September 3 using the AstraZeneca vaccine, which requires two doses, eight weeks apart.

The vaccination program will expand to people aged 18 to 49 at the end of the month.

Around 2 million people in this age group who have been given priority access, including public transportation, delivery, call center, restaurant and cafe workers, can start making reservations for shots at 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Vaccinations for this group will begin in mid-August.
