Well, we will deliver the latest vaccine information.
``The Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare has announced that it will start delivering about 100,000 doses of the new coronavirus vaccine developed by Novavax in the United States to local governments from the end of May. We have notified you to pre-register the location on the 6th, and will proceed with preparations for a smooth supply prior to the approval or rejection of the vaccine on April 18th.
Each prefecture is required to set up at least one vaccination venue, and the number of allocations will remain small. It will be shipped in two batches, the first batch will start the week of May 23rd and the second batch will start the week of June 6th.
The Novavax vaccine was filed by Takeda Pharmaceutical in December 2021. Takeda will receive the technology transfer and will be in charge of domestic production and distribution. The government has signed a contract with Takeda to receive 150 million doses for roughly one year from the beginning of 2022.
If Novavax is approved, it will be the fourth vaccine in Japan. As there are signs of the re-expansion of the new corona, the government aims to increase vaccine options and accelerate the third vaccination. ”
