Fully vaccinated people can now receive COVID-19 booster shots as fast as 3 months after their last vaccination.

On December 10, the Ministry of Interior and Safety announced new guidelines for booster shots. Previously, people ages 60 & older or those ages 18-59 in high-risk positions could receive booster shots four months after their final vaccination and anyone over 18 years old could receive their booster shot five months after. The new guideline has reduced that period significantly.

Adults over 18 years old can now sign up for their booster shot three months (90 days) after being fully vaccinated.

For more information, visit the COVID-19 website available in Korean, English, and Chinese.
