The five people who died in the past week after receiving shots include two senior citizens and a 17-year-old boy. The KDCA said the boy received a vaccine shipped by state-contracted vendor Shinsung Pharm, a distributor of vaccine bottles that were exposed to room temperature during shipment.

The reports of new deaths came as the government tries to prevent a ‘twindemic’ – a convergence of the seasonal flu and the coronavirus. Health authorities planned to provide free flu shots to around 19 million people, or 37 percent of the population. About 8.3 million people have been inoculated with the free vaccine since the campaign resumed on October 13.
