According to all national papers, the GOJ has forged with Pfizer a rough agreement to import some 120 million doses of its coronavirus vaccine next year in order to administer them as booster shots. The GOJ has already sealed a similar contract with Moderna on procuring some 50 million doses in 2022. Administrative Reform Minister Kono said on a TV show yesterday that the GOJ has already secured enough doses to give everyone in Japan a third dose of vaccine, projecting that booster shots will be administered to healthcare workers first, followed by the elderly. He added that the GOJ is trying to secure about 150 million doses of the Novavax product as a “backup.”
