U.S. Forces Korea has offered to provide some of its Covid-19 vaccines to the South Korean government free of charge to help with the local shortage.
USFK said in a statement on Monday that it's working closely on the matter with the South Korean health and defense authorities.
Local media reports have cited multiple government officials as saying that USFK has offered around 13-thousand doses of the J&J's Covid vaccine that it took delivery of last week.
So far, USFK has inoculated more than 70 percent of its personnel, and has lifted its mask mandate for the fully vaccinated.
