Top office says President Moon willing to get AstraZeneca vaccine Updated: 2021-03-04 14:40:43 KST

The Blue House says President Moon Jae-in is willing to get the COVID-19 vaccine made by AstraZeneca in the near future, when the time comes.
The top office said Thursday that the timing of the President's vaccination will be determined according to the procedures of the KDCA and in consideration of his diplomatic schedule.
Moon has been invited to attend the in-person G7 meeting scheduled for mid-June in the UK.
His first shot is expected in late March or early April, given that the AstraZeneca jab requires two doses within a time frame of eight to twelve weeks and considering the time it takes to build immunity.
In South Korea, the AstraZenenca vaccine is currently being given to people below the age of 65.
President Moon is 68.
The announcement of his willingness to get it is likely meant to ease concerns about its safety and effectiveness.
