South Korea will administer the single-dose COVID-19 vaccine developed by Johnson & Johnson to people over the age of 50.

Individuals over the age of 30 who are unable to get their second scheduled dose due to work conflicts and other circumstances will also be eligible to get the shot.

The government's vaccination task force announced the plan Tuesday, adding that international maritime workers, the homeless, unregistered foreigners and businesspeople will be given priority to the vaccine.

The first shipment of 101,000 doses of the J&J vaccine arrived in the country from the United States last Thursday.

South Korea acquired a total of 7 million doses through a direct contract with the company.

People will begin receiving the shots next week.

More than 20 million people have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine since the country launched its inoculation program in late February, according to KDCA data.
