COVID-19 vaccination in Japan

At a vaccination center located in Toyota, Aichi Prefecture, where the automaker is headquartered, the flow of people is being frequently checked and required adjustments are made to the layout of the facility and the COVID-19 vaccine delivery to ensure crowds don’t form.

The time necessary for everyone who gets a shot is calculated to be 10 seconds for rolling up the sleeve and 90 seconds for a single shot.

At the facility of Toyota, if the waiting area for people who received shots starts becoming overcrowded then the officials are quick to arrange chairs for them.

Japan is seeking to accelerate its vaccine rollout, which is still way behind compared to some other countries.

Given the efficiency of the measures taken by Toyota, the automaker is seeking to help municipalities across the nation, too.

Currently, about 8% of the country’s 126 million population had received one shot of a COVID-19 vaccine.

The efforts are being made as the Tokyo Olympics is only less than two months away. Tokyo Olympics was earlier set to begin in 2020 but was postponed due to the increase in coronavirus cases.
