Recent studies and media accounts reporting Japan to be unusually vaccine hesitant require critical scrutiny. Our historical review shows that many vaccines have been accepted and that today recommended routine vaccines are universally accepted. That said, social mobilization of vaccine-injured victims has generated public and official hesitancy toward new vaccines and represents a significant challenge for Japan’s public policy.
