It's a novel virus though, it will settle down and the shots will space out. Don't expect there to be another booster before next winter

This would be shot Number 5.

I'm just about to get my 41st flu shot next week. Probably going to be the same for COVID, annual shot slightly adjusted for whatever variant is doing the rounds that particular year but you don't hear anyone saying the same or counting the number of flu jabs they've gotten

Good and get rid of the tour requirements too

Did you even read the article or just the headline? It’s literally in the second paragraph “The government will simultaneously relax other restrictions including a visa requirement and the requirement to travel on a package tour”

@foreigner in Tokyo

Have you tried to get tested recently? It’s really rather simple. My daughter had the sniffles last week and her doctor ordered PCRs for everyone in our house, no problems.

what you’re saying may have been true at the beginning of the pandemic but it’s a different situation now

If you pay tax to the city, you should have a say in how it’s run. Every taxpayer should have the right to vote

@burning bush

No matter how hard you try, you aren't getting access to my body.

I bet you’d give them access to your body if you presented to the emergency room unable to breathe after catching COVID.

If they are not displaying severe symptoms then why are they being hospitalised ahead of locals who are being refused admission left, right and centre?!

It’s either never ending or it’s for the time being. It can’t be both lol

Positive cases from private clinics do not count to the official daily tally.

Genuine question, not doubting you are correct but, what’s your source on this information?
