The government says it will offer more incentives to individuals who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

The move is likely aimed at getting more people inoculated to achieve herd immunity by November.

Interior Minister Jeon Hae-cheol said in an interagency COVID response meeting on Wednesday that more social distancing measures will be eased for those who get both shots.

He did not provide any details about the additional incentives.

Currently, up to six people can hold private social gatherings in areas that are under Level 4 social distancing rules, including the capital region, given that at least four people are fully vaccinated.

Jeon said the government also plans to shorten the interval between the administration of the first and second doses of the vaccine.

Originally, the interval between the shots was three weeks for the Pfizer vaccine and four weeks for Moderna.

The government standardized the waiting time between doses to four weeks for both vaccines due to supply issues, and later extended it to the current six weeks.
