Municipalities Begin Vaccinating 6 to 11-year-olds 彰化縣等縣市 6-11歲學童莫德納今起開打

Different parts of the island have begun vaccinating 6- to 11-year-olds. Education Minister Pan Wen-chung says parents don't need to make a decision now. Meanwhile, after getting a shot and feeling unwell, students can have a three-day vaccination leave.


Six to 11-year-olds began receiving Moderna vaccines in Changhua County and other parts of Taiwan on the 2nd. New Taipei will be vaccinating students between the 3rd and 31st.

Chang Ming-wen, New Taipei City Education Commissioner: “We will be administering Moderna vaccines from May 3 to May 31. The government is trying to get BNT vaccines and if it gets some parents will be given a choice.”

Education Minister Pan Wen-chung says the central government will work with local bureaus on campus vaccination programs. Parents can also have their children vaccinated at a hospital if they prefer.

Pan Wen-chung, Education Minister: “Parents don't need to make a rush decision. When the time comes, they can consult with doctors and experts. In theory, we will respect the decision of parents.”

Pan says parents don't need to make a rush decision and can consult with doctors if they want. He also said the government will respect parents' decisions and students are eligible for a three-day "vaccination leave" after getting a shot.

Pan Wen-chung, Education Minister: “Students will get a three-day "vaccination leave" after getting vaccinated if they need it. Taking these three days off will not incur any penalties or affect their grades.”

With regards to the suspension of classes and the TVE joint college entrance examinations, which were held from April 30 to May 1, Pan said the government will always find a solution that considers student rights and make rolling adjustments when needed.

 

 

 

全台疫情拉警報,為了保護學童,像是彰化等部分縣市,今日開始讓6到11歲的學童接種莫德納疫苗;而像是新北市,則是規畫明日開打,預計5月底前完成施打。

新北市教育局長張明文表示:「我們施打從5月3日到31日的是我們的莫德納疫苗,那當然BNT的部分,也在最近也會進口,那進來以後,我想家長要如何選擇,可能就由家長來做志願性的評估。」

教育部長潘文忠出席立院教委會的教保條例草案審查,強調施打規畫上,會透過與地方局處合作,參考青少年接種BNT的模式,學童可在校園內施打,或是家長也可以選擇到醫療院所施打。

教育部長潘文忠表示:「家長不必非常急迫的來做決定,必要時也可以來徵詢相關的醫師專業來做一個參考,那這部分基本上我們都會以尊重家長的決定,來做後續的這個處理。」

潘文忠強調,每個孩子的狀況不同,家長也了解孩子情形,家長不必急著決定,必要時,可以徵詢醫師,會尊重家長決定來做後續處理。而學童施打後,會有3天疫苗假休息。

潘文忠表示:「對於在施打疫苗後,那麼也有3天這樣的疫苗假可以提供給孩子,如果身體不適需要做休息,這部分有這樣的一個假別,不會記錄任何的這個差勤的紀錄或成績的紀錄。」

對於停課標準,潘文忠強調,教育部持續關注疫情變化,也和指揮中心會商,包含過去兩天的四技二專統測也是同樣模式,希望維護考生權益,教育部也會持續視疫情滾動修正。
