In preparation for the spread of the new coronavirus infection, we will subsidize part of the influenza vaccination costs for citizens under the age of 65 who are not eligible for regular vaccination in order to reduce the number of fever patients in winter and reduce the burden on medical institutions.

In addition, inoculation at medical institutions outside the city is also eligible for subsidy.
