I also passed without any proof of vaccinations. I hope they can see from the blood test if I am protected or not. I did have the vaccinations but what if i didn’t??[/quote]
I did my health test two weeks ago. Yes, they do a blood test for the Mumps, Measels and Rubella. I saw it listed on the papers you take to the boold testing part of the hospital. My work pays for my health report so I didn’t have to pay that. I went to Ren’ai hospital. There is a notice on the wall on the 1st floor saying about this test saying they do a blood count and if your anitbodies are below a certain count or in a grey zone they will ask you to get a booster shot. They didn’t ask for proof of vaccination, I guess the bood count is the proof. The hospital called me personally asking me to come in as I was below the count for the antibodies. I was a bit annoyed as I have had all three diseases as a kid as well as shots so I asked the doctor why I needed it and in his broken English he said “we have to help your body remember” so I said, oh, it’s a booster shot then, and he said yes. So I went to the room next door and the nurse gave me the shot, just one shot for all three. I did have to pay that myself, NT$591, they gave me a paper to prove I have been vaccinated and that was that. So I guess next year they will probably still check for anitbodies, but I should be fine now…
I would like to thank the Taiwanese government for helping to protect me and my country by vaccinating me so I won’t take any of these diseases back to my home country.[/quote]
I posted this before but people in western countries are also getting re-immunized. Simply the immunization that most people received as a child has been found to be inadequate and people who have gotten an MMR have gotten Mumps and Measles even though that were immunized as children. I hope that clarifies everything a little.
