The city of Yokohama on Sunday began administering the coronavirus vaccine to elderly citizens at a mass vaccination center.
Yokohama has the largest number of senior citizens in Japan.
As operations got under way, Yokohama Mayor Fumiko Hayashi inspected the venue at Hammerhead, a multipurpose complex consisting of port facilities, restaurants and a hotel, Fuji TV reported. A 3,600-square-meter terminal by immigration and customs for cruise ships is being used for the vaccinations.
Officials said the site will be open every day from 9 a.m. until 7 p.m. until July 31 and that they hope to give two doses of the Moderna vaccine to 92,000 people.© Japan Today
