Prime Minister Fumio Kishida told parliament Wednesday that a Self-Defense Forces-run mass COVID-19 vaccination site in Tokyo will boost its daily capacity to about 5,000 shots next week.

The Tokyo venue, which is currently capable of administering 720 shots a day, was already set to raise the figure to 2,160 on Monday. The government is considering raising the capacity to around 4,000 on Tuesday and around 5,000 on Feb. 10, Chief Cabinet Secretary Hirokazu Matsuno said at a news conference.
