Getting Vaccinated in Japan

As Japan's COVID-19 vaccine rollout continues, ANZCCJ endeavour to keep our members informed of the options available to them and the staff of their organisation. See the links below for information.

For Businesses who wish to manage their own vaccination centres:

The Government of Japan has announced that companies with more than 1,000 employees are to be given the opportunity to organise vaccinations for their staff. 

Companies who apply will be supplied with the Moderna vaccine and freezers necessary for storage, but will be responsible for sourcing their own vaccination venues, doctors, nurses and support staff. Due to the high number of applications and limited vaccine supplies, please note that the acceptance of new applications for this initiative has been temporarily suspended.

General Information (Japanese)

Q&A (Japanese)

The Tokyo Chamber of Commerce and Industry have announced that they will offer vaccinations for companies with less that 50 staff, who have been greatly affected by the pandemic. See here for more information (further details to be announced).

For individuals:

Individuals residing in Japan will receive vaccination vouchers and guidance from their local city/ward office. Each city or ward has established their own rollout plans and timelines, so we encourage members to visit their city/ward office's homepage for detailed information.

For those who wish to speak to officials regarding the rollout, multilingual call centres for each prefecture Japan can be found here.
