I wanted to start a new thread on this because the others regarding COVID-19 are filled up. So we need to focus on this important thing regarding the vaccinations.
Now that the AstraZeneca COVID Vaccines have arrived in Taiwan, I have thought twice about this, and I have decided that even when I didn’t want to take the vaccine, I am convinced that this vaccine is safe, and I will take this vaccine in order for me to allow myself to be able to have the chance to go home to Canada and see my kin very soon.
The question I have is, how long will it be when we teachers will get vaccinated for COVID-19? If I can get it as soon as May, I will.
The main point here that I want to get across is this: If I get inoculated with the vaccine in about 2 to 3 months from now and they give me the record for being vaccinated, will my home country (Canada) give me an exemption from a 14-day quarantine? If I return to Taiwan (if my contract is renewed), will I also get exempted from quarantine?
To me it makes no sense to put a vaccinated person into quarantine or self-isolation if they have the record to prove that they have been vaccinated from COVID-19. If I do get vaccinated, and my government in Canada does not exempt me from quarantine, then I will still not go to Canada this summer, as simple as that.
So now that the vaccines are here in Taiwan, they got to get cracking with the inoculations ASAP.
