The venue for the inoculation center in Osaka was decided on the 3rd for large-scale inoculation of the new coronavirus vaccine.

The government is aiming to open it in Tokyo and Osaka at the same time from the 24th of this month, and the Ministry of Defense, which manages it, is urgently improving the inoculation system such as securing personnel.

To accelerate vaccination against the new coronavirus, the government plans to set up large-scale vaccination centers in Tokyo and Osaka for the Self-Defense Forces to set up and operate.

In Osaka, where the venue had not been decided, on the 3rd, Deputy Minister of Defense Nakayama visited the candidate site and decided to make it the prefectural international convention center of Osaka City, with the joint government building of Otemachi, which was the venue of Tokyo. Similarly, we are aiming to open on the 24th of this month.

At all venues, inoculation is scheduled for three months from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm every day, including Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, and the Ministry of Defense will secure the necessary personnel by the end of this week for the Self-Defense Forces nationwide. We are urgently preparing the vaccination system, such as requesting the unit to report the number of qualified doctors and nurses who can be dispatched.

In addition, the Ministry of Defense is considering setting up a call center centered on the Internet for accepting reservations, and will announce a specific reservation method on the 10th of this month so as not to cause confusion over reservations. ..
