COVID-19 Vaccinations for the Elderly (as of 3/13)

The City of Hiroshima will provide information from the national government regarding the efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine and observed side effects and is working to ensure that we alleviate concerns citizens may have about the vaccine so that they will feel comfortable being vaccinated.

One shipment (doses for 485 people) will be delivered during the week of April 5, 2021, and we expect that beginning the week of April 26, shipments will be delivered in stages. Based on this information, we have made the following decisions:

COVID-19 Vaccination System Trial

The first round of vaccinations (doses for 485 people) shall be conducted as a trial for the system for large-scale vaccinations to come. The system trial vaccinations shall be conducted in two ways: group vaccinations conducted by the City of Hiroshima, and private vaccinations conducted by medical institutions. They shall be held at a small number of venues and we will examine issues that arise with the appointment system, venue management, vaccine delivery, vaccination record management, etc.

Only those selected for the system trial will receive their vaccination slip in the mail early. As a rule, those selected must make a vaccination appointment through the appointment system by themselves.

Vaccinations During Periods of Short Supply

  • After the vaccination system trial, we anticipate a period where vaccines will be in short supply and, as such, it will be difficult to vaccinate all of those who are eligible.
  • The elderly are at a high risk of developing serious cases of COVID-19, and clusters often occur at elderly care facilities and medical institutions.

Due to the reasons listed above, during periods when the vaccine is in short supply, we will work to be flexible in our response and take into account the amount of vaccines available and the number of people willing to be vaccinated while adhering to the City of Hiroshima Vaccination Policy below.

  2. Those aged 70-74 (83,844 people)
  3. Those aged 65-69 (68,444 people)

Note: Age groups will be divided based on vaccine supply for the elderly population of those aged 65-79.

Notes: The population figures are current as of the end of December 2020. The population for priority levels 2 and 3 include residents at elderly care facilities/disabled care facilities and patients hospitalized at medical institutions.

The policy above is for periods when the vaccine is in short supply. Once we have a stable supply of vaccines, we will send vaccination slips to the entire elderly population and conduct vaccinations.
