I agree. I think most governments have realised that doing terrible things increases their chances of re-election. It’s unlikely Taiwan’s politicians have failed to understand the zeitgeist.
Fuck that Nazi shit. I’m pro-vaccine, but it should always be a personal choice.
Let them die and we can get on with our lives. It’s their choice. I can live with that.
On a brighter note, the Mega City Shopping Mall in Banqiao will reportedly be among the new vaccination sites, perhaps as early as next week:
Perhaps I have underestimated the will to get things done. Free stuff!
Any preventive, diagnostic and therapeutic medical intervention is only to be carried out with the prior, free and informed consent of the person concerned, based on adequate information.
I just hope at least one supermarket doesn’t indulge in this sort of disgusting behaviour so that I can boycott those that do. I guess a-ma down at the market won’t have an impromptu vaccine booth, at least.
My gym’s given me two free months on my membership for my two jabs. Not bad at all. I’ve saved 1600NT. I wonder if they’ll do the same for boosters?
It’s probably the stuff close to end shelve life?
Some Carrefour stores are providing walk-in Vaccinations this afternoon.
As well as gifts for those turning up “People who arrive to receive their COVID-19 jabs at the Carrefour Yilan store will each receive a free NT$100 voucher and a lunchbox containing bread and a drink, the supermarket chain said.” I hope they have enough doses!!!
Vaccines at the Anping Carrefour available today (Sunday 12/5) from 1:00 pm to 5:00 pm.
With gifts available, I guess we’ll find out if people in Tainan (and perhaps more broadly around southern Taiwan) are as cheap as their northern brethren—and if (as I suppose we’ll see) they prefer free gifts more than they dislike vaccines.
As long as they deliver in the correct order, that being Shot first, then give them the Gift - else they might take the Gift and run.
I cannot recall any discrimination for getting vaccinations in Taiwan—except in Taipei City in the early days, where it was required to have something (official household registration) that almost none of us have. F&ck you Taipei City!
Ah I meant for the free goodies haha.
So we should have surpassed the 60% double vaxxed rate over the weekend. And the single dose rate should be at 80% in not too long. Oh and the booster shot vaccination rate is also being considered/calculated now. 0.01% at present.
177,580 doses were given yesterday, of which 164,201 were second doses, and 2490 were Booster shots. 14,169,298 are now fully vaccinated which is 60.52% of the Total Population.
We hit 60, baaaaybeeeee!!!
Should be 80% with one dose by the end of this week.
People lining up for shots and vouchers today at main station
You know you’re in Taiwan when…
