Vaccination Venue

Vaccinations will be conducted in two ways: group vaccinations (held at venues which Onomichi city will prepare) and private vaccinations (held at medical institutions).

Vaccination Cost

The COVID-19 vaccine is free.

Note: there have been cases of scammers pretending to be municipal or health center workers and asking for money for vaccinations. We will never ask you for money for the COVID-19 vaccine or to make an appointment. If you receive any suspicious phone calls, hang up immediately and report it to the police.

How to make an appointment

Make an appointment online or by phone after you receive a vaccination voucher.

Relief System for Injury to Health with Vaccination

Vaccinations can cause health problems (illness or disability). Although this is extremely rare, the risk cannot be eliminated, and a relief system has been established for this reason.
In the case of health damage as a result of the vaccine from the COVID-19 vaccine, relief (medical expenses, disability pension benefits, etc.) is also available under the Immunization Act. Please consult with the municipality where your residence is located regarding the procedures required for application.
