Thousands of people swarmed a walk-in COVID-19 vaccination site newly set up in central Tokyo for young people on Saturday morning, hoping to get tickets for about 300 shots offered for the day.

The Tokyo Metropolitan Government conducted a vaccine lottery after disarray on the first day of the program Friday when a line began to form from early morning and people snapped up some 200 vaccination slots provided on a first-come, first-served basis well before registration was scheduled to start.
