December 29th – As of the 29th, as of the 29th, several U.S. military bases in Japan and South Korea have begun to vaccinate against the novel coronavirus.
However, Japanese and Korean staff in these bases are not within the scope of vaccination.
According to the Japan Broadcasting Association (NHK), relevant people revealed that the U.S. military institutions in Japan that have started COVID-19 vaccination work are Mizawa Base (Aomori Prefecture), Yokota Base (Tokyoto), Yokosuka Base (Kanagawa Prefecture), Zama Camp (Kanagawa Prefecture), Kadena Base (Okinawa Prefecture) and Suigaita Camp Mizukilan Camp.
According to the report, at present, the U.S. military in Japan has obtained about 8,000 doses of vaccine, all of which are produced by the United States’ Modna company.
Americans on the base will be vaccinated one after another, among which medical workers will give priority to vaccination.
At the same time, the report pointed out that all Japanese staff at the base were not included in the vaccination target.
In addition, according to South Korean media reports, on the 29th, the U.S. military headquarters in South Korea issued a press release saying that medical, logistics and other personnel at the U.S. military bases in Wushan, Pingze and North Jeolla Province, Gyeonggi Province, South Korea, had begun to be vaccinated against the “modena” against the novel coronavirus on the same day.
According to the report, Robert Abrams, the commander of the U.S. military in South Korea, was also vaccinated at Camp Humphrey at the Pingze base.
However, like the U.S. military in Japan, the inoculation targets in the U.S. military bases in South Korea are limited to American personnel, and South Korean staff are not within the vaccination range.
