doctor because of the spread of COVID-19, but regular vaccinations for children
are not unnecessary nor un-urgent. make sure to get vaccinated at the desired
【Why it is better to get vaccinated at
It is because it is determined based on the
age at which children are susceptible to each infection. If inoculations are
put off, they may suffer from serious infections because acquisition of
immunity may be delayed.
【Are there any measures to prevent the
spread of COVID-19 at the medical institute?】

【Let’s protect emergency medical care! Shisei Dayori, September(8)】
September 9th is “First Aid Day” and
September 5th - 11th is “Emergency Medical Week”. Why don't we think about
emergency medical care?Thanks to a lot of doctors, nurses, and
medical staff, the emergency medical care system is maintained in Kumamoto
City. However, it cannot be maintained if the number of “convenience store
consultation”, which is not-urgent consultation at night, increases. Since the
number of medical workers are limited at night and on holidays, treatment for
those who are in an emergency may be delayed and the burden on them becomes
heavy. Do not go to see a doctor outside consultation hours just because
it is not crowded at night. Make sure to go to a clinic in the consultation
hours if it is not urgent.
