Over 3K Teachers, Students to Be Vaccinated in Taipei 防疫大作戰 北巿今起連3天師生接種疫苗

Over the next three days, Taipei will be vaccinating students and teachers ahead of the first week of school after the winter holiday. It is also administering Medigen vaccines to anyone who wants them with no appointment required. Taipei officials say restrictions may be eased at the end of the month if everything remains stable.


The spring semester starts on the 11th. On the 7th, Taipei City began administering boosters to teachers and second doses to students. The city expects to vaccinate 3,212 people over the course of three days.

Tsai Ping-kun, Taipei City Deputy Mayor:"This is the third wave. We are asking anyone that hasn't been vaccinated yet to go get vaccinated at Huaisheng Junior High School. We're also looking at elementary school and preschool teachers. We have around 2,000 teachers and students getting vaccinated at Huaisheng Junior High School today."

The second-dose coverage rate of eligible students is expected to reach 90 percent soon. In addition, Taipei will have a total of 6,778 Medigen booster doses available at three locations between the 7th and 11th. Appointments are not required. Both Taipei and New Taipei are mulling the possibility of easing restrictions at the end of the month or later if the situation is stable. 

Hou Yu-ih, New Taipei City Mayor:"We have to look at the number of imported cases and the number of cases worldwide before we can decide whether to ease restrictions. Other factors include domestic controls, community spread, and the vaccination coverage rate. "

Hou Yu-ih says the week of the 11th will be critical with students returning to school and he hopes everyone eligible for a vaccine can get vaccinated.

過年期間南來北往,為了防堵疫情擴散,北市各校都在開學前做好防疫準備,學生第二劑施打率將達到八、九成,北市府也再提供高端疫苗追加劑、共6778個名額,7日到11日開放3處現場掛號,隨到隨打,北市規劃,開工後如果疫情穩定,考慮在2月底微解封,新北市也將密切觀察開工後的疫情發展,作為微解封的條件。

新北市長 侯友宜表示:「微解封的方面,起碼要看到我們入境的整個個案,跟全球的個案數,大概是呈現什麼的一個狀況。再加上,我們境內的管控,有沒有擴大在社區感染,有沒有增加的趨勢,以及我們的疫苗覆蓋率。」

侯友宜強調,11日開學這週是重要的觀察期,是防疫上的重要挑戰,也鼓勵市民踴躍接種疫苗,一起做好防疫工作。
