Sunday’s Nikkei wrote that the GOJ is planning to make government facilities in Tokyo and Osaka available for COVID-19 vaccination. The paper wrote that although the central government has allowed local governments to roll out their own vaccination programs, it has decided to take the lead to speed up the process. The GOJ will set up a vaccination center in a government building in Tokyo’s Otemachi business district after the Golden Week holidays in May that will be able to accommodate as many as 10,000 people a day. The central government is also planning to mobilize SDF doctors and nurses to cover a shortage of medical practitioners in the private sector who can administer vaccines. All other national dailies ran similar reports on Monday.
