Third Vaccination Shots (Booster Shots) Summary

Vaccination period:

December 1st, 2021 through September 30th 2022 (planned)

Vaccine types:

Both Pfizer and Takeda/Moderna will be offered, regardless of which type you received for your first and second shots. The same amount of Pfizer vaccinations will be available, but the amount for Takeda/Moderna will be halved.

Vaccination costs:

Vaccinations will be administered using public funds, and are free of charge for everyone.
*However, there is a possibility you will have to pay for doctor fees if you visit a clinic before or after the vaccination.

It is possible to receive a different type of vaccination for your third shot than you did for your first and second shot. See the following page (外部サイト)(machine translation) for more details.

People for whom receiving a third shot is highly recommended:
