Abstract

Immunisation is an important tool to protect individual and public health both in routine universal coverage and in complex emergency situations. Japan legally supports routine childhood immunisation against only eight diseases and recently experienced pandemic influenza and devastating earthquake and tsunami. This perspective aims to describe the current issues on Japan's immunisation policy in routine, pandemic and post-tsunami situations and to suggest solutions for them.
