The Republic of Korea has reduced the interval between the second and booster doses of the coronavirus vaccine to three months in response to a jump in the number of new infections.

About 81% of the South Korean population has been fully vaccinated against the coronavirus. However, the daily number of new infections in the country on Thursday exceeded 7,000 for the third consecutive day.

Health officials confirmed 7,022 new infections and reported that the number of patients in serious condition was 852 - the second-highest number in the country for all time. The number of cases of infection with the omicron variant was 63.

The Government of the Republic of Korea announced on Friday that persons aged 18 years and over will be required to receive a booster dose of the vaccine three months after the second injection.

This interval was 4 months for people aged 60 and over, and 5 months for those aged 59 and under.

The government plans to start accepting booster applications on Monday.
