[3] Decide whether or not you will get a booster shot

While vaccination is regarded highly effective in preventing the onset of illness, there are side effects such as fever after vaccination. Please consider both effectiveness and the side effects before deciding whether to have the vaccination.

Regardless of the type of vaccine used in the first and second doses, the Pfizer or Medrona vaccine will be administered for the 3rd and 4th dose.

Out of those who are going to receive additional vaccination in January and February, 93% received the Pfizer vaccine for the second dose and 7% received the Moderna vaccine. On the other hand, the vaccine supplied by the government is 56% Pfizer vaccine and 44% Moderna vaccine. Therefore a certain number of people will be vaccinated with the Moderna vaccine.

The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare states that even if a different vaccine from the first and second vaccinations is administered for the third vaccination, side effects within 7 days after the vaccination are acceptable in terms of safety, and the vaccination is effective. Therefore, especially for those who received the Pfizer vaccine for the first and second vaccinations, please consider receiving the Moderna vaccine for the third vaccination.

For the 3rd and 4th vaccinatioh,  Pfizer gives the same amount as the first and second doses, while Moderna gives  half the amount.

※Read carefully "3. Explanation about vaccines" and "Instructions for vaccine used for the third dose (issued by MHLW)(In Japanese).

[4] Make a reservation  

Once you receive the vaccination coupon, find a vaccination site in order of the following:
※Make sure by yourself that there are five-month gap from the date of the previous vaccination.

(2) Medical institutions that accept people who never visited their institution;
