Adults aged 18 to 49 can now sign up for COVID-19 vaccine booster shots.
People in this age group who were fully vaccinated at least five months ago are eligible to get an additional dose of vaccine and can register via the national vaccination website.
Booster shots will be administered to from Saturday, according to the Korea Disease Control and Prevention Agency.
The government announced last week its plan to expand the booster shot program to all adults.
The decision was likely aimed at better protecting the population amid increasing breakthrough infections and concerns over new variants.
