Hiroyuki Today: Corona Vaccine Pay Proposal

Hiroyuki Today

 Hiroyuki Nishimura, 45, a businessman and founder of 2channel, updated his Twitter page by the 9th.

He mentioned that the Ministry of Finance held a subcommittee meeting of the Fiscal System Council (an advisory body to the Minister of Finance) on April 7 and expressed the opinion that “special measures should be abolished” regarding the current situation where the cost of vaccination against the new coronavirus is fully paid by the government.

 The vaccination fee is approximately 9,600 yen, but as a special exception, the vaccination is free of charge.

According to the Ministry of Finance, 257 million vaccinations were given in FY2021, amounting to more than 2.3 trillion yen in business.

The Ministry of Finance has determined that vaccination needs to be normalized as society moves toward a “with corona” approach to coexistence with coronas.

It argued that, as with other infectious diseases such as seasonal influenza, vaccination should be shifted to a “routine vaccination” program in which those who wish to be vaccinated pay a portion of the cost.

 Hiroyuki said, “We are talking about the Corona vaccine being self-paid, but if you are over 65 years old, the fatality rate is cut in half when you get the vaccine. I suspect that by making the cost of the vaccine co-paid, they are trying to reduce the number of elderly people and normalize their finances.” He continued with his personal opinion.

I believe there is a surplus of corona vaccine.

I don’t think the vaccination rate will increase even if a fee is charged.

Am I the only one who thinks it is more dangerous to vaccinate the elderly as well?
