Mix-and-match vaccine registration now open
People other than medical workers now have the option of being vaccinated against Covid-19 using different vaccine brands.
Registration for the mix-and-match approach opened on the government's 1922 vaccination website from 10:00-16:00 today.
The roughly 2.25 million people who have received one dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine and have not yet gotten a second dose will be able to register their willingness to get a Moderna or Pfizer-BioNTech jab.
The CECC said registering a preference does not commit an individual to the mix-and-match approach but will give people that option when the CECC opens slots for appointments.
More registration periods will be opened in the future.
To date, 17.93 million of Taiwan's 23.41 million population, or 76.58% has received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, while 10.23 million people, or 43.69% have received the two doses needed to be fully vaccinated.
