Yomiuri wrote that the GOJ is considering administering free of charge a COVID-19 vaccine to everyone who wishes to be vaccinated in a bid to reduce the mortality rate and prevent people from getting seriously ill even if they contract the disease.   


Meanwhile, Asahi said the Tokyo metropolitan government has decided to conduct COVID-19 PCR testing on some 150,000 residents and workers of nursing homes and facilities for people with disabilities in order to prevent cluster infections there. Free PCR tests for these people will begin in early October.
