Vaccination schedule

The state of COVID-19 vaccinations

Regarding the sending of vaccination coupons

Vaccination coupons, needed to make a reservation and for the vaccination itself, were sent to you during the middle of June. If you do not have the vaccination coupons, please call the Higashihiroshima City Call Center (0120-022-894).

In Higashihiroshima City, start dates for reservations and vaccinations are being set for different age ranges, in order to avoid too many reservations being made at the same time. When you are able to make a reservation and receive the vaccination, you will be sent information by post from Higashihiroshima City.

You will need the vaccination coupons when reserving and receiving the vaccinations, so please keep them carefully until you have received the second dose.

Your consent (the consent of a parent/guardian) is needed for the vaccination. There is no compulsion to receive the vaccination.

Reservations and Vaccinations for those aged between 12 and 64 (For the Pfizer vaccine )

Those aged between 12 and 64 will be sent another notice from the City when reservations and vaccinations are due to begin.

Please reserve a vaccination after you receive the NOTICE.

Depending on available supplies of the vaccine, you may not be able to be vaccinated promptly.

1 Find a location where you can receive the vaccine

You can make reservations online, or through the Call Center.

Some medical facilities only accept reservations directly by phone, or in person.

Please check from the list of medical facilities where vaccinations are available.

■Supplies of the vaccine from the national government are limited, so for the most part, vaccinations will be conducted individually at medical facilities.

■A decision about whether or not to hold group vaccinations across the city will be made based on the situation regarding supplies of vaccine.

For the most up-to-date information, please check the city website.

2 Make a reservation online or by phone

You will need your vaccination coupons in order to make a reservation.

■If you make a reservation online or through the Call Center, your second vaccination will be reserved automatically for the same time, 21 days after your first vaccination.
