KOBE – Barrier Free Japan’s vaccine appointment in Kobe has been cancelled due to lack of supply of the vaccine.
Barrier Free Japan booked a vaccine in late June, but received a letter on July 8 that said that due to a lack of supply of the vaccine, the appointment had been cancelled.
According to The Mainichi, the vaccine rollout is being suspended in parts of western Japan:
“[T]he city of Osaka announced on July 2 that it would suspend first inoculations from July 12, while Kobe said it would do the same from July 6. Both cities have seen significant declines in the supply of Pfizer vaccines they had expected to get from the central government, and decided to prioritize second shots. Vaccinations that have already been reserved will be frozen, impacting over 50,000 people in Kobe.
