Taipei Offering Gift Vouchers with Moderna Vaccines 莫德納快到期 柯宣布9日前打送百元禮券

Taipei's first-dose vaccination coverage currently stands at 88.36 percent and the second-dose rate at 69.48 percent. To prevent the vaccines from going to waste and the emergence of the Omicron variant, Taipei City Mayor Ko Wen-je announced that people who get the Moderna vaccine up to Dec. 9 will get a NT$100 gift voucher.


People are lined up outside a Taipei vaccination station waiting to get their vaccines despite the chilly and wet weather. To guard against the Omicron variant, Mayor Ko Wen-je announced that people in the first three vaccine priority groups are eligible for booster shots. For the first priority group of medical personnel, the hospitals where they are employed will be responsible for compiling lists and vaccinating. For the second priority group of local government epidemic prevention personnel, including police officers, civil servants, firefighters, social workers, disease prevention personnel, and disease prevention taxi drivers, in principle, the city government will compile the list and carry out the vaccination. People who have received two doses will be able to make online appointments starting five months after their second dose, but only the Moderna vaccine will be available.

Ko Wen-je, Taipei City Mayor: “All those inside hospitals who received the second dose at least five months ago should get it. If any hospital tells us that there is an outbreak because someone didn't get vaccinated, the starting fine will be NT$1,500 per case. We'll deal with them based on the Communicable Disease Control Act. All hospitals need to be responsible for their own employees.”

Taipei City Mayor Ko Wen-je said that if unvaccinated medical personnel cause an outbreak, the city will issue a starting fine of NT$1,500 per case. Cities and counties are setting up vaccination sites at hypermarkets and department stores. Ko said Taiwan has a high density of hospitals and clinics, so its situation is different than the sparsely populated US. He opposes this measure for cost, personnel, and safety reasons.

Ko Wen-je, Taipei City Mayor: “If you go get vaccinated at a PX Mart, is it a store employee who's giving you the vaccine? No. It's medical personnel. Why would you move medical personnel from hospitals to a hypermarket to administer vaccines? I would rather leave them inside the hospital. If a problem occurs and someone needs emergency treatment or CPR, it's very easy if they're at a hospital. You'll die if you're at a hypermarket and you need CPR.”

Taipei has a batch of Moderna vaccines that will expire on Dec. 9. To prevent them from going to waste, Ko announced that people who get the Moderna vaccine as their first or second dose up to Dec. 9 will also get a NT$100 gift voucher.

 

 

 

不畏外頭陰雨綿綿,台北市府快打站人潮一波接著一波,為了避免變種病毒Omicron入侵,市長柯文哲宣布,針對前三類民眾追加第三劑疫苗加強劑,第一類醫事人員由醫院自己負責造冊,第二類地方政府防疫人員,包含警政、消防、社工、防疫旅館及防疫計程車,原則上由市府專案造冊集中接種,至於一般民眾已經打滿兩劑而且間隔五個月,可上網預約,不過僅限莫德納疫苗。

台北市長柯文哲說明:「所以在醫院裡面的,凡是打滿兩劑超過五個月都要去打,我們到時候要是醫院有任何說這種,因為沒有打疫苗出現感染力的,每一例1500塊起跳,按照傳染病防治法來處理,所以凡是醫院的,醫院自己要負責。」

柯文哲表示,如果醫事人員沒打疫苗造成感染,每1例將開罰1500元起跳。針對各縣市紛紛在大賣場、百貨公司等地方設立快打站,柯文哲表示,台灣醫院和診所密度高,和美國地廣人稀的情況並不一樣,考量成本、人力及安全性,他個人抱持反對意見。

台北市長柯文哲認為:「你去全聯打疫苗是店員給你打嗎?不是嘛,還是醫護人員打嘛,所以把醫護人員從醫院移出來,移到賣場去打疫苗,那我乾脆把醫護人員放在醫院打就好了,我們在醫院裡面有出問題,要急救、要CPR什麼都很容易,你去大賣場一個CPR你就掛了。」

雖然反對增設賣場接種站,但為了提高打氣,避免一批12月9日即將到期的莫德納疫苗浪費,柯文哲也宣布,只要從即日起到12月9日,施打莫德納第一劑、第二劑的民眾,都可以在現場拿到100元禮券。
