At the large-scale inoculation center in Tokyo for the new coronavirus vaccine set up by the government, the new priority inoculation for the younger generation began on the 4th.

The large-scale government vaccination center operated by the Self-Defense Forces has a new frame for people aged 18 to 39 to receive vaccinations preferentially in order to promote vaccinations for the younger generation. Inoculation for the priority frame started from.

The acceptance of approximately 22,000 priority slot reservations at the venue in Tokyo by the 25th of this month was filled up in just over two hours from the start of acceptance at 6:00 pm on the 3rd.

A lot of people visited the venue from the morning while it was raining on the 4th, and a 23-year-old woman who made a reservation in the priority frame and came to receive the first vaccination said, "Yesterday, I can make a reservation safely. I was able to do it. I haven't been able to make reservations so far, and I'm relieved to receive the vaccination. "

In addition, a 23-year-old man who made a reservation in the normal frame and visited for the second vaccination said, "Many friends around the same generation cannot make a reservation in the local government frame. Those who want to receive the vaccination can receive the vaccination. I want you to arrange it. "

On the other hand, the large-scale inoculation center in Osaka will accept reservations after renovating the system, so inoculation is expected to start in the second half of next week.

The government has also decided to extend the period for setting up large-scale vaccination centers by about two months until the end of November, and hopes to further accelerate vaccination through a series of efforts.
