S. Korea overtakes U.S. and Japan for first-dose inoculation rates, giving jabs to 64.6% of population Updated: 2021-09-13 09:35:47 KST

South Korea has surpassed the U.S. and Japan in its first-dose inoculation rates.
South Korea's health officials on Monday reported that almost 65 percent of the country's population has had one dose or more of the COVID-19 vaccines.
That's a higher share than the U.S. or Japan, which are both on around 62 percent.
South Korea's recent rollout of vaccinations for those aged 18 to 49 has fueled this boost.
The country looks like it could meet its goal of giving at least one dose to 70 percent of the population before the Chuseok holiday, but health authorities warn that high inoculation rates should not be misread as an end to COVID-19.
