Coronavirus Vaccine in Taiwan - 2022

For forumosans considering this plan, allow me to say in advance it’s not a great idea. If you’re in Taiwan, other options are open to you which are lower risk.

There was a case reported in Australia a few days back of an “Omicron Party” that someone held, in an attempt to gat them all positive. The host was less than impressed though - they did all test positive within days, EXCEPT for the PARTY HOST !!!

Omicron, like its predecessors, is a wily virus indeed.

I hope he has immunity … from the law.

I know, right? I wonder how they’ll spin it when omicron gets in and those people who complied are all coming down with a dose. No doubt it’ll be the fault of the unvaccinated.

I actually am not worried at all, not even close. Omicron is the last of my worries.

Good charts summarizing vaccine progress, and also showing how there hasn’t been many more first shots in the past few weeks.

Good numbers, just don’t freak out when Omnicron cases hits 80,000 p/day.

Estimate is that 1 in 75 are currently infected with Corona in the Netherlands. Hospital numbers however are still going down.

It was at 1 in 15 in the Uk and life continued.

I was there when it was around 1:40. Nobody gave a toss. Most people walking around maskless. Everyone still at work. My guess is that the majority of those cases were just positive tests which people ignored for all practical purposes.

435,496 doses were given yesterday, of which 17,603 were first doses, 42,417 were second doses, and 375,476 were Third/Booster shots. 17,157,687 are now fully vaccinated which is 73.40% of the Total Population.
Of interest, going on the Eligible (12+) population (around 90% of the total population), the 1st/2nd shots become 90% and 82% respectively.
