      • Japan backpedals on plan to let people choose COVID-19 vaccine


        Vaccinations for people age 65 and over are set to begin April 12 across the country, but the initial rollout will be limited and uneven at the local level, Kono said in an interview Monday.

        "It will be very slow,” Kono said. "The prefectural governors asked us to go slowly so that they can check the systems and so that all the cities and towns can get ready for the vaccinations.”

        One time-consuming issue slowing the rollout is the need for doctors to learn a new technical system to track vaccine numbers, Kono said.

        Japan is still limiting COVID-19 vaccines to health care workers, with more than 780,000 first vaccine doses administered in Japan as of Monday — a number that accounts for less than 1% of its more than 125 million residents.

              New Zealand has announced that any citizens representing their country at an important international event (eg OG) will be vaccinated.

                    • I think we're at the Go/No-go juncture now, so it sure looks like a Go.

                      • Without fans...the no go could come anytime....there is no deadline....they stopped the NCAA sports on a moment's notice last year...

                        I just don't see them happening..they are in the denial stage ..outside the US the situation is as bad as a year ago....if not worse...

                        Even if they vaccinated everyone coming in, which is unlikely, it is unknown if they can still spread covid....where hardly anyone is vaccinated....cases are up even here...and Europe is on lockdown...

                                I guess we'll see, but where there's a will (and the LOC seems hell-bent on having them), there's a way.
