Sunday’s Mainichi wrote that municipal governments are struggling to develop specific plans for administering vaccines against COVID-19 to their residents due to delays in the central government’s procurement of vaccines for them. Although the GOJ is planning to start vaccinating 36 million people aged 65 and older on April 12, it will probably only be able to secure doses for about 50,000 people by then. Noting that the delays in vaccine procurement will affect the vaccination of the general public that will follow the immunization of the elderly, the municipal governments are now reviewing their preparations, including setting aside school buildings and other large public facilities for vaccination.
