Appointment-free Moderna Vaccines Administered 賣場.百貨公司.超市 陸續設置疫苗接種站

To raise the vaccine coverage rate, Taipei Main Station, supermarkets and department stores are being turned into vaccination sites. On Dec. 6, people lined up at PX Mart's Daguan Store in New Taipei City to get Moderna shots. Appointments were not required.


At 9 a.m., vaccinations start at PX Mart's Daguan store in Banqiao District. Appointments were not required for the Moderna jabs.

Mr. Tai, Vaccine Recipient: “I was so busy I forget to make an appointment. I only made an appointment yesterday, and then I came over today.”

Mr. Liu, Vaccine Recipient: “I went to Far Eastern and several other hospitals. They all said I needed an appointment and I wasn't able to get vaccinated. I'm so happy I finally got vaccinated today.”

PX Mart began administering vaccines at its 140-plus stores nationwide on the 6th. 

Wang Chiung-lang, Superintendent, Hsiao Cheng-Cheng Hospital: “Lots of people that work overseas are coming back for the holidays. The pandemic is really bad in other countries. If we want to protect our families, all adults should get vaccinated.”

Liu Hung-wei, Store Spokesperson: “PX Mart is also providing free water and bread for people getting vaccinated. While they're waiting, they can rest and have something to eat.”

The Central Epidemic Command Center also announced new vaccine requirements on Dec. 5, with employees of 24 types of venues including KTVs, banquet halls, and adult entertainment venues required to be 14 days removed from their second dose to be able to work starting Jan. 1. In response to criticism about the government forcing vaccines on citizens, Chen Shih-chung said people that don't want to get vaccinated can submit negative COVID-19 tests instead.

Chen Shih-chung, Chief, Central Epidemic Command Center: “We're asking people, not forcing them. Unvaccinated people need to get tested for everyone's safety.”

Chen also said it was always the government's plan to raise the full vaccination coverage rate. Meanwhile, booster shots are now available to people in priority categories 1-3 five months after their second dose.

 

 

在工作人員引導下,上午九點一到,就有民眾來到全聯新北板橋大觀門市,登記接種莫德納疫苗,不需預約、隨到隨打,相當方便。

接種疫苗民眾戴先生說:「因為我之前也忘記排了,太忙了就忘記排了,昨天有看到新聞,這裡有在排,所以我才過來這邊。」

接種疫苗民眾劉先生則說:「我跑去亞東還有好幾家醫院,說什麼要先預約,結果好幾次都沒有打到,我今天能打到太好了,太好了!」

為了提升國人疫苗涵蓋率,疫情指揮中心和全聯福利中心合作,6日週一起,在全台140到150間門市設置新冠疫苗接種站,希望民眾在歲末年終前,將2劑或3劑疫苗打好打滿來。

蕭中正醫院院長王炯琅表示:「許多的在外面工作的,大家都要回來過年,這段時間也在國外的傳染非常嚴重的情形,如果要保護我們家裡的老人小孩,以及所有的成年人,打疫苗是最好的一個方法。」

賣場發言人劉鴻徵說明:「全聯這邊也提供了免費的水跟這個現烤麵包,希望提供施打的民眾,在這個等待的期間呢也可以先休息一下然後吃個東西。」

此外,為因應新型變種病毒Omicron,指揮中心週日公布強化疫苗政策,包括KTV、八大行業、大型婚宴場所等24類場所,明年元旦起,所有工作人員必須完整接種疫苗、且滿14天才能上工,引發外界疑慮,等於變相強迫打疫苗,對此陳時中回應表示,也可用檢測替代疫苗施打。

疫情指揮中心指揮官陳時中回應:「這不能說是強制,那是一個要求,但是沒有打的人那就要檢測,那是為了整個一個場域的安全。」

陳時中強調,把第2劑疫苗涵蓋率提高是原本的政策目標,防疫準則也是這樣要求,至於第3劑間隔5個月,提前讓第1到3類對象接種,是因應變種病毒,讓第一線醫護及防疫人員能守得住。
