Japan to set up large vaccination sites in Tokyo, Osaka

The Japanese government is looking to set up large COVID-19 inoculation centers in Tokyo and Osaka in order to boost the pace of the vaccinations.

According to a report published by the Nikkei on Sunday, a large center set to open next month in central Tokyo will be able to vaccinate up to 10,000 people per day with the help of the country's Self-Defense Forces who will also assist in the campaign.

The decision comes as Japan faces the fourth coronavirus wave with the spreading curve still registering an upward trend, and the latest data adding more than 5,000 new positive cases.
