Since the large-scale inoculation center for the new coronavirus vaccine set up by the government has a vacancy in the reservation frame, the Ministry of Defense will make final adjustments to inoculate civil servants in the field related to crisis management such as SDF and police officers from the 14th. It is expected to be officially decided on the morning of the 14th.

At the large-scale inoculation center set up by the government, inoculation is being promoted for elderly people aged 65 and over, but there are many vacant reservation slots for the two weeks from the 14th to the 27th of this month, and defense The provincial government has expanded the target area to the whole country, and from the 12th, it started accepting reservations by telephone as well as the Internet until then.

Still, for the past two weeks, as of the evening of the 13th, there were about 98,000 vacant venues in Tokyo and nearly 38,000 vacant venues in Osaka, and reservations are still unfilled.

For this reason, the Ministry of Defense is making final adjustments from the 14th to inoculate civil servants in the fields related to crisis management, such as SDF personnel, police officers, and coast guard officers, at the venue in Tokyo, which has a particularly large reservation space.

The target is planned to be Tokyo, Saitama, Chiba, and Kanagawa, and it is expected to be officially decided on the morning of the 14th.

On the other hand, the large-scale inoculation center is considering reducing the target age to 64 years old or younger, including those with underlying diseases and staff of facilities for the elderly, and the Ministry of Defense wants to make a decision based on the availability of reservations. It is said.
