● Things to bring with you: medical questionnaire form, mother-child handbook, any certificates of vaccination, and vaccine notebook (if you have one)
  • · You cannot receive a vaccination if you have a fever of 37.5°C or higher or are not feeling well.

Precautions *Be sure to check the following in advance.

  • ●初回は必ずワクチン仮申込フォームでの事前お申し込みが必要です。 下記「ワクチン仮申込フォーム」をご入力ください。
  • ●原則、事前のワクチン確保が必要なため、完全予約制です。 当日の接種をご希望の場合は事前に当院へご連絡ください。 ※インフルエンザワクチンについてはご予約をお受けしておりません。
  • ● For the initial vaccination, you need to apply in advance using the vaccine provisional application form. Please complete and submit the vaccine provisional application form.
  • ● Vaccinations are only given by appointment because it is generally necessary to obtain the vaccines in advance. If you wish to receive a vaccination on the day of your visit, please contact the clinic in advance. *We do not make appointments for the influenza vaccine.
  • ● If you wish to receive an English-language certificate, please check with the clinic in advance to see whether that can be accommodated. Please request an English certificate of vaccination from the vaccine provisional application form and send it separately by fax after clearly indicating the part to be described.
  • ● It may take several days to issue the certificate, so please leave some leeway in your schedule when requesting one.
  • ● A cancellation fee may be charged for no-shows. If you need to change your appointment, please call us as soon as possible.
  • ● We cannot vaccinate children of junior high school age or younger because we do not have pediatricians on our staff.
  • ● A guardian must accompany high school students and other minors (under the age of 20) who are receiving vaccinations.
  • ● Since this is not a yellow fever vaccination center, the yellow fever certificate (yellow card) is not available.

About the medical questionnaire form

You need to fill out the medical questionnaire form at the time of the vaccination. Please download the medical questionnaire form below, fill out the form, and bring it with you. This will make for a smooth process on the day of the vaccination. (Depending on the situation on the day of your visit, some waiting time may arise.) The consent of a parent or guardian is required for vaccinating minors. Minors presenting for vaccination unaccompanied by a guardian must bring a medical questionnaire form downloaded in advance and signed by their guardian. The minor will then be able to receive the vaccination if the doctor can connect with the guardian over the internet at the time of the history taking. *Please be advised that vaccination may be cancelled at the doctor’s discretion.
