Here are the Covid-19 mass vaccination centres in Tokyo

Where you can go to receive your free coronavirus inoculation, including walk-in centres

Over half of Japan’s population has received at least one dose of a Covid-19 vaccine while more than 40 percent of the population is now fully vaccinated. The government is aiming to expedite the vaccine rollout even further, now targeting younger people under the age of 60. 

We’ve already published a guide on how to book your Covid-19 vaccination in Japan. However, if you want to know more about the venues where you can get vaccinated, refer to the list of large-scale inoculation facilities in Tokyo below. Each centre offers one of three vaccines – Moderna, Pfizer and AstraZeneca – for different target groups. 

Shibuya Youth Vaccination Centre

Vaccine: Pfizer 

Eligibility: People aged 16 to 39 who live, work or attend school in Tokyo

Operation period: August 27 to October 8 

Venue: Shibuya City Labour & Welfare Hall 2F, 1-19-8 Jinnan, Shibuya

Note: due to high demand, this facility will be using an online lottery system from September 3 as there is a limited capacity of 300 people per day. You can apply for the lottery via Line, where lottery results are sent to applicants around 7pm daily. Be sure to bring along your vaccine coupon, ID and smartphone to confirm your time slot at reception. 

Essential worker vaccination centres

Note: children aged 12 to 15 must be accompanied by a guardian in order to be vaccinated at the Tokyo Dome Vaccination Centre. 

Some large-scale vaccination facilities may be fully booked when you first visit their designated websites. However, it’s worth checking back periodically in case spaces open up due to cancellation. This includes the Self-Defense Forces Covid-19 Vaccination Centre in Otemachi, where appointments for the Moderna vaccine may suddenly become available before the centre’s August 28 deadline (for the first dose).
