Vaccination with Novabacs, the fourth new corona vaccine in Japan, has begun at medical institutions in Tokyo.

The five people who were vaccinated on the 27th also had the AstraZeneca vaccine so far, and a 62-year-old man who is an office worker said, "I was expecting it as a domestically produced vaccine, so I'm glad I got it." Was there.
At this medical institution, 500 people will be inoculated in the future, and changes in body temperature and inoculation site will be recorded for 4 weeks for analysis.
Kazuhisa Takahashi, director of Juntendo Clinic, said, "I would like to investigate thoroughly to give a sense of security to the vaccine."
