Let people here have the choice to use AstraZenaca if they want. I would have jumped at the choice earlier in the year or even now if I couldn't have got a vaccine shot.

They only had a year and a half to make some temporary hospitals like China and the UK did last year especially as they know most private hospitals here don't want to deal with Covid patients.
What's wrong with this government, why can't they be smart for once.

The numbers show that the vaccines are working as the majority catching covid are younger people who haven't been vaccinated yet.
-2 ( +12 / -14 )
Too late to do this now they just need to speed up the vaccinations.

Seems the government now realizes the only way out of this mess is to vaccinate the masses. Shame they didn't start earlier.

We could do with some "Good" news for a change!!
That is good news for the people who are vaccinated !

They should investigate the prosecutors office and fire those that decided not pursue this case.
One rule for them and another for us.

So it seems that it's mainly Trump fans that are refusing to get vaccinated so i guess less of them will be around to vote at the next election.

The issue is no one takes the government seriously anymore as they continue to send mixed messages with how we should deal with Covid.
If only they had started the vaccinations earlier a lot of lives would have been saved including a friends life who just died because of late vaccinations here.
Isn't it time for a new approach and leadership ?

Totally unfair to just target bars and restaurants, what about coffee shops, shopping malls, amusement parks and other crowded businesses.
14 ( +17 / -3 )
Why is this even in the news. Just ask !!

Isn't it too much of a coincidence that one of China's top coronavirus laboratories happens to be located in Wuhan ??
Also if they had nothing to hide why not let WHO investigate properly and unhindered.
25 ( +27 / -2 )
Just targeting bars and restaurants doesn't work, what about the trains, Disneyland, department stores, shopping malls and of course the Olympics as examples. No wonder most people ignore the government requests.
Time to change our leaders here for some smarter people with some balls.

Good to see the UK supporting Japan.

They should have used their Astra Zeneca from the start like most other countries. Overly cautious as usual.
19 ( +25 / -6 )
And from Wednesday next week, visitors will need to show either proof of vaccination or a negative test, in line with recent government-imposed requirements.
That's what the Japanese government should do for bars and restaurants in Tokyo, that way they can open as normal.
-1 ( +2 / -3 )
Isn't it time to get some smart people to run this country.
30 ( +31 / -1 )
If you decide not to get the vaccine then dont complain when you get sick or cant travel overseas.
18 ( +30 / -12 )
They should have fully vaccinated the people of Tokyo first before other parts of Japan then they could have held the games safely and it also would have stopped Tokyo spreading the virus.
-3 ( +8 / -11 )
As usual one law for the so called elite and one for the rest of us.
42 ( +46 / -4 )
Easy find another country that welcomes F1
0 ( +3 / -3 )
This means they have decided already to extend to make them look like they are doing something and they continue to pick on bars and restaurants whilst letting everyone else do what they want.
14 ( +15 / -1 )
Time to stand up against China before its too late.
31 ( +37 / -6 )
Keep it open !
I still haven't got my coupon yet living in Shibuya ku. So useless.
6 ( +7 / -1 )
If they are not going to use in Japan then best give away before they expire.
I am still waiting for my vaccine coupon to be sent so would have been happy to have had the choice to have an AstraZeneca one.
