Athletes participating in the upcoming Tokyo Olympics began receiving coronavirus vaccinations on Thursday.
The first group of 91 athletes in seven disciplines including judo, table tennis, women's volleyball, climbing and taekwondo were inoculated with Pfizer's vaccine at the National Medical Center in Seoul.
A total of 931 athletes, coaches and officials need to be vaccinated. Among them, 598 people -- all the athletes and coaches and others under the age of 30 -- will be given the Pfizer vaccine, which has a shorter interval between doses than AstraZeneca's vaccine.
"I was worried about it, but it felt like getting a flu shot," volleyball player Kim Yeon-koung said after getting a shot.
