Starting the 3rd COVID‑19 vaccination for medical workers

12/03/2021 Topics

 On Tuesday, December 1, 2021, we have started the 3rd vaccination for COVID‑19 at the University Hospital.
 90 medical workers, who had the COVID‑19 booster shots 8 months after the 2nd dose, received the Pfizer vaccine.
 Due to the current situation with the new mutated coronavirus variant called Omicron, which confirmed the first case in Japan, there was a lot of interest in the 3rd vaccination, and we were interviewed by the press on the first day of the 3rd vaccination.
 After the vaccination, President Shinji Shimada said,” There aren’t many side effects from the covid-19 vaccine, so I would like you to get vaccinated as soon as possible, not only for yourself but also for other people to prevent the severity”.
 We plan to vaccinate 300 people a day from December 9 and about 4,000 people, who are medical workers and medical students will get vaccinated by the end of February next year, and we also plan the 3rd dose of the vaccinate in March for the approximately 50,000 people who received from the Workplace Vaccination at the University.
 We will continue to concentrate our efforts on taking counter measures against COVID-19.
