[Real-time news/comprehensive report]Wuhan pneumonia (new coronavirus disease, COVID-19) is severe, many countries in the world urgently need vaccines, and Japan is about to approve Pfizer vaccines. However, it is reported that the Japanese government is forced to remove Pfizer vaccines that cannot be removed are discarded, and the total usable amount is revised down accordingly.

According to comprehensive foreign media reports, since the United Kingdom and the United States began to administer Pfizer vaccines in December last year, medical personnel discovered that there would be surplus vaccine after the original five-dose vaccine container was drawn. In response, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and British regulatory agencies agreed last year to draw out the remaining sixth dose, and even the seventh dose of vaccine is available.

The Japanese government began to ensure the supply of syringes to medical manufacturers last summer, assuming in advance that 5 doses of vaccine will be drawn from each bottle. Until the 20th of last month, after the agreement with Pfizer to order 144 million doses of vaccine, the Japanese government learned that most of the syringes it had prepared could only draw 5 doses of vaccine.

The Ministry of Health, Labour and Welfare has stepped up to obtain special syringes, but not only the United States, but the European Union has declared a shortage, and manufacturers cannot meet the demand immediately. Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare Norihisa Tamura stated that only a part of the 6-dose syringes were obtained. As the number of vaccinations increases, the syringes will become short.

The Japanese government had to reduce the vaccine content in the container from 6 doses to 5 doses. According to government sources, if the total number of bottles supplied remains the same, it is calculated that the total amount will be reduced from 144 million doses to 120 million doses.

Japanese government spokesperson and Chief Cabinet Secretary Kato Katsunobu said that Japan will start a vaccine delivery plan in mid-February. If medical personnel cannot extract the sixth dose of vaccine from the container, the remaining dose will be discarded.
