As concerns over domestic coronavirus infections rise, the vaccination rate is going up quickly.

According to the Central Epidemic Command Center, some 11,000 people received AstraZeneca jabs yesterday, the highest single-day number yet in Taiwan.

Since the vaccination programme began in March, over 101,000 people have now received at least one dose of the vaccine.

Most of those were government-sponsored, with one quarter of the recipients paying out of pocket for the shots.

The CECC is attempting to use up Taiwan's current stockpile before the jabs expire later this month.
