ページ番号1021104  更新日 2022年2月14日


 Booster shots for COVID-19 prevention are now being offered, the process regarding how to get your shot is as follows.


Information Regarding Coronavirus Booster Shots (3rd Vaccination)

1.A “pre-examination form” will be sent to you (Also known as yoshinhyo/予診票)

 In principle, people over the age of 18 who had their 2nd vaccination over 8 months ago are eligible for the booster shot. The city will then send you a yoshinhyo. On the bottom left corner of this form will be the date you received your 2nd vaccination.
※The yoshinhyo is attached to your proof of vaccination document. Do not separate these two and bring them as a set.

2.Make a Reservation

 Once the yoshinhyo arrives, make a reservation. How to make a reservation will depend on the vaccination location. If the available slots are full, wait for the next period where they open again.

 If you do not understand how to make a reservation, bring the documents you receive to the WELSAPO Foreigner Support Desk on the 3rd floor of Obu City Hall (Cultural Affairs Department.)

◆Reserve using the internet or city call center.
・Large-scale Vaccination Centers (City Hall, Hoken Center etc.)
・Some hospitals and clinics accept reservations through the internet and city call center. You can find these locations on the “Medical Institution List.”

 ※This video is an instructional on how to make a reservation for the 1st and 2nd vaccination. The process for the 3rd shot is nearly the same.

*City Call Center(Japanese):0120-08-5544 or 0562-38-5544


◆Reserve using a hospital or clinic’s website.
・Hospitals or clinics accepting online reservations will have “web” noted on the list.

◆Reserve directly with a hospital or clinic over the phone.
・Hospitals or clinics accepting phone reservations will have their phone number listed.

3.Fill in the “yoshinhyo”

 Use the translated version as a guide to fill out the yoshinhyo. We are currently preparing an English version.

4.Receive Your Booster Shot

 Check your temperature on the morning of your vaccination day. If you have a fever or feel unwell, contact the city call center or the medical facility to cancel your reservation.

 At the vaccination facility, wear a mask and sanitize your hands. Please refrain from bringing someone with you unless it is a caretaker. Wear clothing that allows you to expose your shoulder area easily.

Bring: ・The documents sent to you (including filled out pre-examination form)
        ・Personal Identification (Zairyu Card, Drivers License etc)
    ・Medication Handbook
