South Korean President Moon Jae-in has received a dose of AstraZeneca vaccine, ahead of a high-level meeting of world leaders to be held in the UK, APA reports citing BBC.
The president’s office said Moon, First Lady Kim Jung-sook and nine senior officials had been given jabs in preparation for a G7 summit planned for June.
State media showed images of Moon being given the AstraZeneca jab at a health clinic in the capital Seoul.
South Korea began using the AstraZeneca jab to vaccinate people aged 65 and older on Tuesday. About 680,000 people have been vaccinated in the country so far.
