【Information on Covid-19 Vaccinations】

This morning we've got a lot of information for you from Fukuoka City. It is about the Covid 19 vaccinations. From the 30th of June, information about the vaccination program was sent by post to Fukuoka City residents 64 years and younger. In addition to the two inoculation tickets and preliminary exam tickets in the envelope that was sent out, you should have also found a booklet giving instructions in regards to the vaccine and information on the vaccine. There is also a leaflet informing you of when you can reserve your vaccination. If you are a resident of Fukuoka City but have not received that envelope, at the end of this announcement, I will give you the phone number to call so that you can have it sent to you again.


Vaccinations will be administered to anyone, including foreign residents, who are over the age of 12.

You will receive two doses, 3 to 4 weeks apart.

Vaccinations will be administered either at a clinic in your area or at mass vaccination center.

You are able to also get vaccinations at locations outside of your ward of residence.

And, those who are 18 years or older can also get vaccinated at the Chuo Wharf Cruise Center. There is a free shuttle bus that runs between Tenjin and the Chuo Wharf Cruise Center. If regular center hours are difficult, late night vaccinations are also available at the Fukuoka City Hospital between 10pm and 8am. 


Please make sure you reserve a day and time before getting your vaccination.

If you can, make reservations for both your first and second vaccination doses on the special reservation website. If making a reservation online is too difficult, reservations can also be made by phone. In order to make a reservation, you must have the number that is printed on your inoculation ticket.


On the day of your vaccination, make sure you have 1 vaccination ticket and your preliminary exam ticket with you, as well as some kind of ID. The vaccination ticket is a sticker, so bring it as it is, on the sheet that it is attached to. DO NOT remove it from the sheet. You will use one preliminary exam sheet and one vaccination sticker at each appointment. Make sure you read the instruction manual before your appointment and fill in all necessary information in advance.

You will be given the vaccine in an area around your shoulder, so make sure you are wearing clothes that allow you to expose your shoulder area easily. Make sure you come wearing a mask.

The prepared number of vaccines must be used on the day, so unless you are feeling ill, please do not suddenly cancel your appointment.


For information on places that are doing inoculations and for the most up to date information from Fukuoka City, check the Fukuoka City homepage.


For more information about the vaccination program or to arrange for your envelope to be sent again, please call 092-260-8405. Again, that number is 092-260-8405. Calls will be taken between 8:30 am and 5:30pm every day. 7 languages are available at that number, including English, Chinese and Korean.


It will not cost anything to you to get vaccinated. You will not receive a bill for the vaccination. In addition, you will not get phone calls or emails asking for personal information. Please be careful, there have been suspicious phone calls and emails recently.
