Authorities remain firm on extending vaccine passes for youths aged 12-18 from February Updated: 2021-12-07 08:42:39 KST

Despite rapidly mounting opposition from teenagers and their parents, authorities in South Korea insist they'll push ahead with plans to extend vaccine pass requirements for 12 to 18 year olds from February.
That means anyone in that age group must be fully vaccinated to go to cram schools, libraries and academies.
Otherwise, a negative PCR test taken within the previous two days can be used to gain entry.
There has been a massive outcry from parents and students, saying it violates unvaccinated students' right to study.
But, authorities insist the decision is to ensure public safety.
