[Japan’s highest number of daily doses administered exceeds that of other G7 countries except the U.S.](https://ourworldindata.org/grapher/daily-covid-19-vaccination-doses?country=FRA~DEU~ITA~GBR~JPN~CAN) After a slow start to the vaccination compared to other countries, it has been awesome to see the turnaround.

Should really compare by capita: https://ourworldindata.org/explorers/coronavirus-data-explorer?zoomToSelection=true&pickerSort=desc&pickerMetric=population&Metric=Vaccine+doses&Interval=7-day+rolling+average&Relative+to+Population=true&Align+outbreaks=false&country=DEU~CHN~CAN~ESP~ITA~CHE~JPN~FRA~AUS~TUR~SAU~IND~RUS~ARG~BRA~MEX~IDN~KOR~GBR~USA~ISR

Damn, China is really on top of their shit now.


bellizabeth

They'll have a high rate for sure since they can mandate it.


robfrod

Isn’t their vaccine shit though?


UnknownDistance

Not surprising considering that other G7 countries are still supply limited while millions of doses were piling up in Japan. Nevertheless, good to see that vaccinations are ramping up.

they do, they surpass the next country, germany, by 40 million. nevertheless, still great numbers to see, considering their troublesome start! certainly they can do even better, which i hope they will. currently, they are rapidly rising and have reached germany's per capita level, which is \~the highest in europe

It’s amazing that they hit Suga’s goal of one million shots a day almost immediately after opening the public sites. Now with workplaces vaccinating too, they should go even faster.


ecgz88

1 million per day is noting still less than 1 per 100 per day, Japan need speed up, US peak is 1.3, South Korea is 1.5 few days ago.


daaiig

South Korea only doing just over 100k Vaccinations a day this week. 100k a day is nothing.


captainhaddock

I just found out my city is mailing out vaccination cards (which let you make an appointment) to all adults under 65 on Monday. It finally feels like we're making progress.


sarsartar

Maybe they will be ready for the Olympics after all.

Suga on deez nuts

Unfortunately,Today,concerns of vaccine shortage is reported.Most of young people are not getting vaccinated yet. > "Large-scale inoculation of local governments and occupational inoculations Temporary suspension of new acceptance Minister Kono" Auto-translation [Here.](https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=&sl=auto&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww3.nhk.or.jp%2Fnews%2Fhtml%2F20210623%2Fk10013100481000.html%3Futm_int%3Dall_side_ranking-social_003&sandbox=1) Original in Japanese [here](https://www3.nhk.or.jp/news/html/20210623/k10013100481000.html?utm_int=all_side_ranking-social_003). I'm really worried for my family members.

Japan has no shortage. Look at the doses delivered data. What Japan has problems with, still, is distribution and bureaucracy surrounding that.


angelorphan

Thanks,maybe the problem is distribution. **Rewrite and update** This morning Japanese time,NHK reported Japanese government stopped to accept workplace vaccination because Moderna vaccine distribution might not catch up.(Auto translation [here](https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=&sl=ja&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww3.nhk.or.jp%2Fnews%2Fhtml%2F20210624%2Fk10013101041000.html%3Futm_int%3Dword_contents_list-items_001%26word_result%3D新型コロナ%20ワクチン(日本国内)))


WaterdudeDev

This is what I gathered from an English language article on this, anyway. https://english.kyodonews.net/news/2021/06/23704de9ea96-japan-to-halt-company-applications-for-workplace-vaccinations.html


angelorphan

Thanks,as I rewrote and updated,Japanese government temporally halted to accept (Yesterday in Japanese time,it was possibility.Today they already halted)workplace vaccination because of Moderna vaccine distribution problems. Pfizer doses at local governments and local hospitals and clinics have distribution bias. For example,when I got my first dose at my GP on Tuesday,they were accepting appointment but no vacancy until 1 month later. There were vacancies at new ENT clinic one floor up,so they were recommending new clinic for earlier appointment. We cannot find vacancy at individual clinics unless people call one by one(there are lists on local government website).I wish this system will be better. Also [Pfizer supply will be less in July](https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=&sl=ja&tl=en&u=https%3A%2F%2Fnews.yahoo.co.jp%2Farticles%2Fc6e4cd3ed1789f4f5aa5555b9ea06179d90b305b) (not a good source,but other ones are paywall)for local governments.

What vaccines are they primarily using? If it's mRNA then I think they will be fine with the Olympics going ahead, especially if they prioritize first doses.


RoundCat

Almost exclusively mRNA. They approved J&J, but have yet to implement it. Meanwhile they're not even bothering with Astrazeneca. Pfizer and Moderna are what they are injecting most people with, and they are currently in the process of trying to develop their own.


deedeekei

they haven't approved J&J here yet, they approved AZ but have no plans to actually distribute it at this time


RoundCat

I thought it was in reverse. Like they basically haven't implemented either due to the blood clot reports. Guess I got them mixed up.
