Posted in: I was stunned to find that the metropolitan government is putting the Olympics ahead of inoculations. I am angry that we are instructed to work as support staff during the Games with only a single dose. See in context
I don’t know if it’s because I’m a pharmacist but it baffles me how many people don’t understand common knowledge regarding vaccines. The most common side effects are a low grade fever, pain/redness at the injection site, lethargy… Nothing that warrants taking time off work (for the vast majority of people).
Aren’t there medical professionals informing the government about these matters? Oh that’s right….

So...my husband translated the reply I received and the uni just wanted to get a general idea of how many vaccines they should organise. Still, the deadline was way too short. What a mess.

I'm a doctoral student living in Tokyo. My university sent an email out at 19:30 last Friday night, asking students who were interested in getting vaccinated to click on the link provided to submit a Google form expressing their interest. The deadline to submit the form? 9am this morning!
I couldn't believe it. Are they actually trying to limit the number of students they vaccinate? I've sent a complaint and am waiting on a reply. Why is it that the Japanese are always scrambling to complete their work and they end up setting such short deadlines for everything? It's incredibly frustrating.
