Taiwan president Tsai Ing-wen was taken Taiwan’s homegrown coronavirus vaccine in a live media broadcast on August 23, casting a vote of confidence in the controversial vaccination program.

Accompanied by National Taiwan University (NTU) Vice President Chang Shang-chun and lawmaker Chiu Tae-yuan, Tsai arrived at NTU Medical School Gymnasium early in the morning on August 23rd. She took a temperature of 36.9 degrees Celsius and was asked by a doctor to explain the precautions before signing a consent form.

During the inoculation process, Tsai reminded the nurse to give the high-end vaccine to the media to “take a look.” She also told the NTU medical team on the scene: “I’m sorry for such a huge injection scene.” The nurse disinfected her hands and vaccinated her in a second. Tsai asked, “Is that the end? I don’t feel anything.

The high-end vaccine was developed jointly by Taiwan’s health department and the NATIONAL Institutes of Health in the United States. Taiwan’s government has an initial order for five million doses, but says it will not force people to accept the vaccine.
As many as 700,000 people have already booked up for the high-end vaccine.

Taiwan’s main opposition party, the Kuo Min Tang, said the safety and effectiveness of the new vaccine had not been proven and accused the government of rushing the plan.

“There is no need to treat the lives and health of Taiwan people like white rats in a laboratory,” a senior KMT official told Reuters.

But officials at the high-end vaccine company say the company have done a lot of testing and that the vaccine has been shown to be safe with few side effects, and urge people to be reassured.

Taiwan had accelerated plans to develop its own vaccine after its efforts to order a coronavirus vaccine from internationally renowned brands suffered setbacks due to obstruction by Chinese authorities.

About 40 percent of Taiwan’s 23.5 million people have received at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine from international brands, but less than 5 percent have completed two doses. However, unlike some other countries, Taiwan has a small number of local NOVEL coronavirus infections and faces relatively low pressure to vaccinate.
