Vaccines are produced to protect against harmful viruses that could cause death. The current and most popular vaccine on the market helps protect the body from contracting and/or becoming ill from the COVID-19/coronavirus. Japan’s vaccines mainly are composed of the Moderna vaccine and Pfizer vaccine.

Additionally, there’s a Johnson and Johnson coronavirus vaccine available which is only injected once in the patient.
