to get help

  • Contracted medical institutions in Nakano Ward have Nakano Ward Pediatric Influenza Pre-screening Sheets. Receive a pre-examination form at a medical institution and fill it out.
  • At the time of payment, you will be charged the amount obtained by subtracting the subsidy amount (1000 yen) from the vaccination fee determined by each medical institution, so please pay that amount.
    (Example) If you are vaccinated at a medical institution where the vaccination fee is 4,000 yen, please pay the difference of 3,000 yen after subtracting the subsidy amount of 1,000 yen from the vaccination fee of 4,000 yen to the medical institution after the vaccination.
