Japan to provide COVID-19 booster shots to elderly in early 2022

Tokyo, Sep 21 (UNI/Xinhua) Japan will begin to vaccinate the elderly with the third dose of COVID-19 vaccine early next year, as the country seeks to better deal with the spread of more infectious variants, Vaccination Minister Taro Kono said on Tuesday.
The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare decided last week to provide booster injections to people who received the second dose of the vaccine eight months ago or earlier, on the grounds that researches found antibodies to prevent this disease decrease over time.
The launch of the vaccine expanded from medical personnel, starting in February, to people aged 65 and above in the spring, then people with underlying diseases such as diabetes, and eventually the general population.
