The university intends to carry out additional vaccination at the university from March 2022 (planned) on Hongo Campus in a similar manner to the initial vaccination carried out in July 2021.

Once again this is to reduce the burden on the community regarding the novel coronavirus vaccination, prevent the spread and aggravation of the infection, and to ensure continuation of safe education and research activities.

As with the first vaccination, we plan to inoculate students and faculty members of UTokyo who wish to receive the booster vaccination, as well as their families, students and faculty members of nearby universities, and people working on campus.

Update: Following the Japanese government’s ruling, the interval between the second and booster (3rd) dose must be 6 months or more.
