While the Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare announced on August 26 that some of the COVID-19 Takeda/Moderna vaccine had been contaminated by a foreign substance, the city has confirmed that the batches of vaccine sent to Yokohama were not among the contaminated vials.
The vaccines at the large-scale Yokohama HAMMERHEAD venue are not affected, so if you are scheduled to get the vaccine there, please visit the venue with peace of mind.
