At this moment, Katano does not know how many vaccines will be provided from Osaka Prefectural Government.
However, when they come, Katano immediately starts vaccinations for elderly people.
To get a vaccination, you need a voucher Katano City Hall issues. It will be sent from the town hall when vaccinations are ready.
I Love Katano also will upload the latest information for foreign residents in Katano.
