Last Sunday, the Japanese government approved the Pfizer vaccine and began vaccinating health care workers across the country on Wednesday. The screen shot below gives all the basic information on how it will work.
It seems so organized, so Japanese. The local governments will mail out tickets when it is your turn. You get vaccinated in your own town, so no one can drive to another prefecture to get the vaccination earlier, like I've heard happening in the US. The homeless can be vaccinated. There is no cost to individuals, the government is paying for it.
In addition to the recently approved Pfizer vaccine, AstraZeneca has already applied for approval and Moderna began clinical trials last month and may be approved in May.
How are vaccinations working where you live? Have you already been vaccinated?
