Japan needs to save them for themselves. They will be needing them after the Olympics! Is the Gov't going to tell the citizens later they have no Oxygen because they gave it all away?

You can import MILLIONS of Vaccines but if your not putting them into the arms of the citizens, THIS STORY DOES NOT MATTER!

How do these women think this was the right thing to do? Babies are not disposable.

People don't have children because they feel bad raising children in the crazy, insane, robotic, unsafe soceity. Make changes and people will have children.

Imagine living in a country where the gov't is so HIGHLY uncapable of being able to figure something out, they have to turn to a random joe who has won the Noble Peace Prize. This is so crazy. I can not believe this is actually happening. With the lack of Vaccine distribution, and the recent travel increase there is going to be HUGE increases of cases soon!

What did they think would happen? Did the J-Gov't really think people would stay home when they just "request" people to do so? Here comes super spread 2021.

But it has inoculated only 1.6% of its population so far, the slowest among wealthy countries.
"Wealthy Countries" People in Japan are not paid well at all compared to the west...The average salary in Japan was $30k in 2019. In the US the average salary was $94k. Japan puts these labels on themselves. This means in Japan if husband and wife work they make less than ¥6 million because woman don't get paid the same...while in America a husband, and a wife both make close to 200k a year.
With that being said..who is wealthy in Japan? Wealthy in Japan is not the same as "Wealthy" in the US.

You know what the real problem is? The Doctors DON'T TRUST THE VACCINE! This is why it is not being administered the way it should. It is not a logistical nightmare...

Japanese executives typically don’t get the big paychecks and stock options some of their American counterparts receive.
Oh, so this situation is more about jelousy, than breaking any laws. There is no law that states you must "state compensation before it is paid". Why you would report compensation PRIOR to issuing the compensation is beyond me. There are other things to worry about right now than how much someone might have been paid.

As an IT professional, app developer, I can tell you that every country using a different app, with a different language etc will NOT work. There needs to be ONE app that is used globally. You can't say it can't be done because looks a apps like Itunes, Netflix, Spotify, etc.
Look what happen to the COVID19 tracing app in Japan. The Gov't spent BILLIONS on a App, that didn't even work and was abandoned. I think that Japan should not take the lead on a global app for use. Let the people in Silicon Valley make it, and sell the rights to other countries.

So, does this mean that I will never be able to travel because I don't want to be a "testing" subject for a vaccine that was made in a few months?

We all know what happens. During the SOE, the numbers go "down". After the SOE, the numbers slowly go back up. Having measures in place for a few weeks does nothing when people go back to their normal lives after the SOE...The J-Gov't has been the most incompetant Gov't I have ever read about. #canceltheolympics.

The only question 80% of Japanese have is, "Why are the Olympics still happening during the MIDDLE of a Pandemic"?

Just think how many people could be vaccinated between now and May 20th. Japan and their shuffling of feet..is laughable.

This is a HUGE blow to Japan! Watch, next the US will withdrawl from the Olympics, as they should. Once the US withdrawls, other countries will follow!

Setup in Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Hyogo, Hiroshima...that will get the Vaccine in the arms of EVERYONE (that want it) FASTER!

Every foreign person should flood the hotlines with calls asking when/where they can get the Vaccine.

It is time for these old men to go. It is time to retire. Put someone young, and full in energy in charge. Someone who looks out for the people, and puts all self interests aside!

Japan just needs to surrender (again) and give up the Olympics. They can't even get enough people to give Vaccines, and they want to pull nurses to attend an event that is just going to destroy the Country? The J-Gov't needs to OPEN their eyes and face reality. The olympics need to NOT GO ON!

We want to thoroughly take necessary measures, including strengthening border controls and monitoring steps," Chief Cabinet Secretary Katsunobu Kato told reporters. The variant, discovered in India.
Japan LOVES to blame others..instead of taking responsibility for their own actions or should I say "Lack there of action".

No one takes the SOE, Virus warnings, etc seriously. In a country that has not been hit as hard as others, it is difficult to convince people to follow REQUESTS. A request is just that..A REQUEST. Daily as I am out and about I see no change in anyones behavior, including my own. COVID-19 is just something that we have to learn to live with.
