What is occupational vaccination(職域接種)? Does Japan have enough vaccines?

What does occupational inoculation(職域接種 しょくいきせっしゅ) mean? Foreigners may be wondering. it means that in order to reduce the burden on the community regarding vaccination and accelerate vaccination, vaccination is carried out at companies and universities in units of occupation (including schools).

How do Japanese people feel about occupational vaccination?

When I ask my colleague, the reaction is different.

"I definitely want to get vaccinated in my workplace."

"I don't get vaccinated."

"I want to get vaccinated in municipalities."

The advantages of receiving vaccination in the workplace are that it is relatively easy to make a reservation and that it can be received during working hours. It also aims to reduce resistance to vaccination by holding an event to vaccinate the company as a whole.

Does Japan have enough vaccines?

Japan has a high vaccine completion rate in terms of global comparison.

According to the Prime Minister's Office and the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare, the cumulative number of inoculations of the new corona vaccine was 127.42 million as of August 29. It increased 2.88 million times compared to the 27th. The increase includes corrections made before the 27th. 44.6% of the total population, 56.72 million people, have completed twice.

It is a harsh situation that young people are lined up in Shibuya from midnight to get the right to inoculate by lottery. The chances of winning the lottery method are about 7 times as many as 300 people for about 2,200 people.

Vaccine refugees are likely to continue to increase in Japan.
