Overview of vaccination against Omicron strains

Please note: Those who have been vaccinated with "Novavacs (Takeda Vaccine)" after November 8, 2020 cannot receive the Omicron strain vaccine.
We carry out booster inoculation using bivalent vaccine corresponding to Omicron strain and conventional strain.
After the 3rd vaccination, the Omicron strain vaccine (BA.1 compatible type or BA.4-5 compatible type) will be given once .

From January 2023, the BA.1 compatible vaccine will be used at venues such as municipal facilities

Currently, the Omicron strain vaccine inoculated in the city is a BA.4-5 vaccine.
From January 2023, "BA.1 compatible vaccine" will be used at venues such as municipal facilities.
Hospitals and clinics other than municipal facilities will continue to use the "BA.4-5 compatible vaccine".

(Note) BA.1 and BA.4-5 vaccines are both expected to be more effective than conventional vaccines. For details, please see the following "The types of bivalent vaccines for Omicron strains have increased (Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare)".
