I don’t get it. Why would you lie? You can get vaccinated regardless if you’re a legal resident or an illegal resident (not that I’m condoning the latter).
If you can’t get a valid proof that you were vaccinated in Spain, you can simply register for a vaccination here. But you have to note the mRNA + vector-based combo. For example: If you got AZ on first 2 doses, your booster should be Pfizer/Moderna. You also have to note the interval between your 2nd dose and your booster (booster = 3rd dose).
Getting vaccinated in Taiwan is not yet mandatory, but highly recommended. So the government wouldn’t really prohibit you from having it regardless if it’s your first or second or third dose.
Would someone who got both doses abroad be considered as first dose? Does not having the yellow vaccination card mean that one could be considered 1st dose?
Its not that i want to do this for the money…i just really wanna get a 3rd dose and a 4th in April before traveling to Europe and someone has recommended me this option…but i dont know how illegal this is.
Lying is not needed. You should be able to access your vaccination records in the EU, which are now recognized mutually with vaccination in Taiwan through the digital certificate program.
Please note you are also eligible for a booster shot five months after your second shot. Taiwan does not distinguish between citizens and noncitizens for this purpose. Everyone here is eligible, and it’s free.
Taiwan has some flexibility here, but I think the basic recommendation would be—if you have not had an adverse response to Pfizer-BNT—to simply stick with the same type for the booster. Moderna is also being administered at half dose for this purpose if this is what you prefer.
I believe your boss is right. I did something similar. Just let them think it’s your first dose, but you can think of it as a booster. If they find out and confront you on it (highly unlikely), just be honest with them. Nobody is going to punish you for the idea of somehow over-vaccinating yourself now that doses are plentiful.
I had my first 2 doses in UK, and got a booster in Taiwan yesterday.
First I had to go to the public health department office with my ARC and proof of vaccination.
Then I went to the vaccination station and got the booster.
