Local workers at U.S. military bases to receive COVID-19 vaccines

Nikkei wrote that the Ministry of Defense announced on Thursday that the U.S. military will administer COVID-19 vaccines to local employees at U.S. bases in Japan, most of whom are Japanese nationals. The paper wrote that those who wish to be vaccinated among the total of about 26,000 base workers in Japan, including interpreters, administrative assistants, and drivers, will be eligible to receive either the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines stored by the U.S. military outside the scope of Japan’s Preventive Vaccination Law. Asahi, Mainichi, and Yomiuri ran similar reports.
