Accumulative vaccine doses delivered per pharmaceutical company as of 25 November 2021.

  AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine (14,725,287 doses) (47.11%)
  Moderna COVID-19 vaccine (7,229,236 doses) (23.13%)

  Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine (7,865,551 doses) (25.17%)

On 18 March the AstraZeneca vaccine was approved by the government, [5] and vaccinations commenced on 22 March 2021. The vaccine is free for all Taiwanese people and long-term residents. [6] Health workers, other frontline workers and seniors were the first to be inoculated with the vaccine. [7]

On 5 May the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine was approved for emergency use, [8] and the first batch of 150,000 doses was delivered on 28 May 2021. [9]

On 17 May 400,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine that were ordered through COVAX arrived in the midst of Taiwan's largest COVID-19 pandemic. [10]

On 31 May Taiwan Centers for Disease Control announced that 10 million doses of domestically produced vaccines (Medigen and United Biomedical) had been pre-reserved. 5 million of each vaccine were reserved. They are expected to be approved and deployed sometime in July 2021. [11] [12]

June

On 2 June Taiwan recorded the first case of blood clotting linked to the Oxford–AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccination. [13]

On 4 June Japan donated 1.24 million doses of the Oxford–AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine to Taiwan. [14]

On 6 June three American senators who arrived in Taiwan announced that the United States will donate 750,000 vaccine doses to Taiwan, the brand of which is still currently unknown. [15] On 20 June 2.5 million Moderna vaccine doses arrived, which represented an increase from the 750,000 doses pledged. The doses arrived on a China Airlines flight from Memphis. [16]

On 18 June Taiwan Centers for Disease Control announced that a second shipment of 240,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine were set to arrive in Taiwan from Luxembourg. [17]

On 22 June the government of Lithuania announced that it was donating 20,000 doses of AstraZeneca vaccine in September. It was announced that earlier in the pandemic, Taiwan had sent 100,000 masks to Lithuania in a time of need. [18]

July

On 4 July the Taiwanese government has successfully vaccinated 10% of the population with at least one dose of COVID-19 vaccine. [19]

On 7 July the first batch of a Thailand-made AstraZeneca vaccine arrived in Taiwan. The 625,000 doses are part of the 10 million doses that the Taiwanese government had previously ordered. [20]

On 8 July Japan donated another 1.13 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine to Taiwan. Combined with the first donation, Japan has donated a total of 2.37 million doses of the vaccine to Taiwan. [21]

On 12 July Foxconn Technology and TSMC announced that they had reached final agreements with Fosun Pharma to each purchase 5 million doses of the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. Combined, the two deals would include a total of 10 million vaccines, which will be donated to Taiwan's CDC for Taiwan's domestic vaccination plan. Despite signing the deal with Shanghai Fosun Pharmaceutical Group, an agreement has been made that the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines would be manufactured and shipped directly from Germany. [22] The deal has been widely seen as a compromise between multiple parties. The Tsai Administration, which was strictly against the importation of Chinese COVID-19 vaccines in Taiwan, has successfully secured direct access to German manufactured Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. Meanwhile, Shanghai Fosun Pharmaceutical Group is able to maintain the legitimacy of their license and distribution rights in China, SAR Hong Kong, SAR Macau, and Taiwan. [22]

On 13 July Taiwan's Central Epidemic Command Center announced that all residents and nationals of Taiwan who were born in or before 2003 would be eligible for making appointments on the Taiwanese COVID-19 vaccination platform, marking the next stage of Taiwan's domestic wide COVID-19 vaccination.

The shipments of vaccine includes 970,000 doses of the Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccine donated by Japan, 560,000 doses of the vaccine manufactured in Thailand, and 350,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine made in Europe, which equals to a total of 1.88 million doses of vaccines. The Japanese donation is the third batch of the AstraZeneca vaccine that the Japanese government has donated to Taiwan. Combined with the previous two, the Japanese government has donated a total amount of 3.37 million doses. [24]

On 19 July the Taiwanese government granted Emergency Usage Authorization (EUA) to the COVID-19 vaccine developed by Medigen Biotechnology Corp. The Medigen COVID-19 vaccine is the first domestic COVID-19 vaccine that was given EUA approval by the Taiwanese government and the first in the world. Despite the vaccine has proven to be safe through its Phase 2 clinical trial, the approval was still considered a controversial political move due to the lack of efficacy data and Phase 3 clinical-trial. [25]

On 21 July the Tzu Chi Foundation announced they had reached final agreements and signed a deal with Fosun Pharma to purchase 5 million doses of Pfizer–BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine.

On 31 July 20,000 doses of Oxford–AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine donated by the Lithuanian government arrived in Taiwan, making Lithuania the third country after Japan and the United States to donate COVID-19 vaccine to Taiwan. [30]

On 23 August President Tsai Ing-wen received the first shot of the local made Medigen COVID-19 vaccine, kick starting the vaccination of Taiwan's first locally made COVID-19 vaccine. [36] On the same day, Taiwan's Food and Drug Administration (TFDA) also finished the inspection of 4 additional batches of the Medigen COVID-19 vaccine. With inspections clear with the 4 additional batches of Medigen COVID-19 vaccine, a total 870,000 doses of Medigen COVID-19 vaccine are scheduled to be delivered in the following week. [37]

In the end of August and start of September, Taiwan have received a few additional batches of COVID-19 vaccines from both direct pharmaceutical orders and donations.

On 4 September, Poland announced that it will donate 400,000 doses of Oxford–AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine to Taiwan as a sign of friendship for Taiwan's donation of medical supplies to Poland in 2020. The donation makes Poland the 6th country after Japan, United States, Lithuania, Czech Republic, and Slovakia to announce donation of COVID-19 vaccine to Taiwan.

Vaccination Appointment Platform

On 6 July, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) announced the creation of Taiwan Domestic COVID-19 Vaccination Appointment Platform, allowing the digitalization of COVID-19 vaccination sign up and appointments. The platform was created to simplify vaccination appointments and increase vaccine roll-outs. [97]

The platform is a four-step system. In the first step, individuals would need to sign up on the website and fill in the necessary information, such as their National Identification Card number, National Health Insurance number, phone number, and their regional address. In first step, individuals are also allowed to choose their preferences, which includes the choice of receiving the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine or the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine. In the second step, the system would sent a message to individuals through their phone number and notify them to make an appointment. Individuals would only receive the message if they are eligible for vaccination and their preferred type of vaccine is in stock. In the third step, individuals can make their appointment on the platform, the vaccination app, or at the convenient store, pharmacy, or dedicated health centers. The appointment gives the option for individuals to select their preferred time and location. Lastly, in the fourth step, individuals would be required show up on-time for their appointment to be vaccinated. Individuals who missed their appointment would need to start the appointment process again. [97]

On 8 July 2021, the CECC announced the opening of Taiwan Domestic COVID-19 Vaccination Appointment Platform across Taiwan, allowing the 9th and 10th priority group to sign up and fill in their vaccination preferences. [98]

As of 15 July 2021, vaccination eligibility is open to the 9th and 10th priority groups and sign ups are open up to anyone born in or before 2003. [88]

On 11 August 2021, Taiwan's CECC announced that appointment for the local made Medigen COVID-19 vaccine would be open for individuals of age 20 or above starting on August 16. Vaccination of the Medigen COVID-19 vaccine was announced to be hold between August 23 to 29th. [99]

On 27 August 2021, Taiwan's CECC announced that preference for the Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine would be open for registration on the platform. [38]
