South Korea had administered extra COVID-19 vaccine doses per 100 individuals than different developed nations by the tip of March 2022. A brand new article printed within the peer-reviewed OMICS: A Journal of Integrative Biology presents six pivotal classes realized from South Korea’s whole-of-government strategy to profitable COVID-19 vaccine roll out.
The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored that methods medication relies on well being methods and companies that may reply to planetary well being threats in scale and with velocity.”

Dr. Hong offers an summary of Korea’s pandemic response and identifies and offers an in depth description of six elements that account for Korea’s strong nationwide vaccination initiative: governance system; logistic functionality; supply technique and accessibility; public well being infrastructure; danger communication; and public cooperation and engagement.
“The teachings from South Korea will help domesticate planetary well being motion in different components of the world throughout the present COVID-19 pandemic, and in ecological crises sooner or later,” says Dr. Hong.
“Vaccine rollout and its governance are as necessary as vaccine discovery and growth. The research makes an necessary contribution by unpacking the a number of determinants of COVID-19 vaccine rollout in South Korea, and from the vaccine manufacturing unit to the general public well being clinic. Subsequently, the paper has relevance for a really big selection of readers eager about vaccine discovery and growth, engineering, manufacturing, methods medication and public well being. The findings inform international governance for science, know-how and innovation within the present period of COVID-19 and ecological crises. I invite new manuscripts on large-scale biology, ecology, and important governance of vaccines and different planetary well being interventions for peer assessment within the journal,” says Vural özdemir, MD, PhD, DABCP, Editor-in-Chief of OMICS.
