The upper house of Japan’s parliament has approved a bill, which says the government will cover all vaccine costs for Japan's 126 million residents.
Japanese government will distribute free coronavirus vaccines to all of its citizens under the bill approved Wednesday.
The government has bought Covid-19 vaccines for 60 million people from Pfizer, which get an emergency-use approval in the United Kingdom, and for a further 25 million people from Moderna.
It will also receive 120 million doses of coronavirus vaccine from AstraZeneca.
Japan has so far reported more than 153,000 COVID-19 cases with 1,908 deaths and 127,000 recoveries.
