A large-scale vaccination center for the elderly was opened in Ginowan City for the first time in Okinawa Prefecture, and mass vaccination began on the 15th.

Okinawa Prefecture will open two large-scale vaccination centers in Naha City and Ginowan City in order to accelerate the vaccination of the new coronavirus for the elderly.

Of these, the "Okinawa Convention Center" in Ginowan City started operation before 6 pm on the 15th.

The elderly people who visited were first vaccinated one after another after undergoing temperature measurements and interviews with doctors.

Then, after observing the progress for about 15 to 30 minutes, I immediately accepted the second reservation.

A 71-year-old man from Naha City who received the vaccination said, "I came to receive the vaccination because I made a smooth reservation. So far, I have no pain and I want to finish the second vaccination as soon as possible."

In Okinawa Prefecture, inoculation is scheduled to begin on the 22nd of this month at the "Prefectural Budokan Arena Building" in Onoyama Park in Naha City, and the prefecture will inoculate 72,000 people at two venues by the end of August. We are planning.
