Outpatient Vaccinations

Outpatient vaccinations will be available at the Hiyoshi, Mita, and Shonan Fujisawa Clinics starting April 2022. Keio University Health Center, Shinanomachi branch inside the Keio University Hospital will also be making improvements to its current Outpatient Vaccination Clinic. If you would like to make an appointment, please contact these clinics or the Keio University Health Center, Shinanomachi branch directly.


Some vaccinations can take up to 6 months to complete, so please contact us as soon as possible if you have any questions.


  • In a trial period during the 2022 academic year, the Hiyoshi, Mita, and Shonan Fujisawa Clinics will offer vaccinations for MR (measles and rubella), varicella, mumps, and hepatitis B to students in the School of Medicine, Faculty of Nursing and Medical Care, and the Faculty of Pharmacy as well as students in the Teacher Training Course.
  • Keio University Health Center, Shinanomachi branch will be open to the same eligible persons and will offer the same vaccinations as before, in addition to a hepatitis B vaccine.

To prevent nosocomial infections that can occur within hospitals and other medical facilities, the Japanese Society for Infection Prevention and Control recommends getting immunized against measles, mumps, rubella, and varicella (collectively known as MMRV) as well as hepatitis B (HBV). The purpose of these measures is to prevent infection by any of these viruses and to prevent them from being introduced into a healthcare setting such as a hospital or other medical facility.


Typically, two doses of each vaccine are required for MMRV. For HBV, the primary series should be completed with boosters be given if antibody titers are low. You also need to maintain proof of your immunization records in a Maternal and Child Health Handbook or other proof of vaccinations. If you have lost or do not have any proof of vaccinations, antibody testing is recommended. Antibody testing is also recommended if you have been infected by any of these viruses and are unsure if you should be vaccinated. The Japanese Society for Infection Prevention and Control states that a written medical history showing that you have been infected by one of these viruses is not acceptable as a proof of vaccination. Antibody tests are also available at our Outpatient Vaccination Clinics.
