TOKYO, May 27 (Xinhua) -- The Japanese delegation for the Tokyo Olympic Games will receive vaccinations from June 1, the Japanese Olympic Committee announced.
Within that pool are 600 athletes, including some who have not yet clinched their berths for the Olympic Games scheduled for July 23-Aug. 8.
U.S. drugmaker Pfizer Inc. agreed to donate supplies of its vaccines to athletes and officials coming to Tokyo after reaching an agreement with the International Olympic Committee. Momii said that the vaccines have already arrived in Japan.
Only two per cent of Japan's 125 million population has been fully vaccinated, according to a government report.
