Posted in: Yokohama begins inoculations at mass vaccination center See in context

Looking at the pictures... I hope the facility uses HEPA air purifiers.

Distancing is fairly useless against an airborne virus like this.

Germany did (genetically) trace infections to vaccination centres, so it is definitely a concern

Comparing the preventable treatable clot risks of airflight or other body position immobility to AZ autoimmune clotting+bleeding used to be meaningless, as the latter used to untreatable by traditional methods.

But l assume that all countries by now have a diagnosis and treatment guideline for the VIPIT, so the risk has dropped considerably, as long as the warning signs are observed long enough

A HEPA air purifier inside would offer much more benefit. So far only airborne infection has been proven, and superspreading events have been in closed stale airspace.

Infection by touch / via surfaces has not been confirmed

Contact with each other's exhaled air/aerosols, more specifically.

So mostly indoors contacts.

there are two men in the picture: one without a mask over his nose and the other wearing it as a chin strap 

I sometimes wear like that outside, and put mask on properly before getting indoors
