All national papers reported on Saturday on the disclosure by Administrative Reform Minister Kono that large volumes of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine will be delivered to the 13 prefectural governments currently under a state of emergency so that they can speed up the vaccination of their residents.


In a related development, Health Minister Tamura disclosed on Friday that the GOJ is conducting discussions with Pfizer on importing some 120 million doses of its vaccine next year. “We need to ensure the steady procurement of vaccines since the virus mutates frequently,” he said.
