Before your baby turns two months old, the city of Hikone mails pre-vaccination checklists and related documents to your registered address. Please get in touch with one of the designated medical facilities to schedule vaccine appointments for your baby. If you need pre-vaccination checklists and vaccine fact sheets in English, Portuguese, or Chinese, please get in touch with the Hikone Health Promotion Division in person. If you have any questions, such as how to schedule a vaccine for your baby, please contact the Health Promotion Division.

*All compulsory vaccines are free as long as your baby gets vaccinated on time.
