CECC to help local governments set up six pop-up jab stations for children aged 5-11 on June 1 (C/5-16)

The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) reported today (May 30) that the number of vaccinated children aged 5 to 11 now stands at 455,000  (about 30 percent of that age group). To help protect children against COVID-19, CECC will assist local governments in setting up pop-up vaccination stations for children aged 5 to 11 starting June 1 at the Liberty Square in Taipei, Banqiao Station in New Taipei, Taoyuan Arena, National Museum of Natural Science in Taichung, Tainan Public Library (main library), and Kaohsiung Exhibition Center. Additional vaccines will be delivered on demand so parents can be rest assured.

CECC said that local governments are also working hard to arrange vaccination services for children at contracted clinics and hospitals or on campus. Children aged between 5 to 11 can voluntarily opt to be vaccinated. Parents, guardians or relatives of children opting to get vaccinated at pop-up vaccination stations or contracted clinics and hospitals must accompany them to sign the vaccine consent & assessment form on the site prior to doctor assessment and getting vaccinated.

 If you had tested positive for COVID-19, a three-month window after recovery is required before you can be vaccinated.
