All national papers focused on remarks made to the press yesterday by Heath Minister Goto that elderly people will be able to receive their third doses of coronavirus vaccine shortly, saying that they may be able to receive them in January in some prefectures, two months earlier than originally planned.

In an interview with Kyodo on Tuesday, Prime Minister Kishida also hinted that the rollout of boosters for those other than the approximately 31 million healthcare providers and people aged 65 or older will be accelerated. The premier reportedly pledged to redouble the administration’s efforts to combat Omicron, which he referred to as a “mysterious enemy.”
