Japan offer compensation for vaccine injuries and does not mandate them

The Relief System for Injury to Health with Vaccination

“Vaccinations may cause health problems (illness or disability). Although this is extremely rare, the risk cannot be eliminated, and a relief system has been established for this reason. In the case of health damage as a result of the vaccine from the COVID-19 vaccine, relief (medical expenses, disability pension benefits, etc.) is also available under the Immunization Act. Please consult with the municipality where your residence is located regarding the procedures required for application.”


Japan on vaccines: “Although we encourage all citizens to receive the COVID-19 vaccination, it is not compulsory or mandatory..Please do not force anyone in your workplace or those around you to be vaccinated, and do not discriminate against those who have not been vaccinated.”
