TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The Kaohsiung City Government will provide drop-in COVID-19 vaccinations at Kaohsiung MRT’s Formosa Boulevard Station in the afternoon from Nov. 10-13.

Kaohsiung Mayor Chen Chi-mai (陳其邁) said on Facebook Monday (Nov. 8) that the shots will be administered under the station’s Dome of Light area from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. from Nov. 10-13. Doses of the Moderna vaccine will be administered from Nov. 10-12, while Pfizer-BioNTech (BNT) shots will be administered on Nov. 13, the mayor added.

Chen reminded that those seeking a second Moderna dose should get it at least 10 weeks after their first shot, while those seeking the second BNT dose should do so at least four weeks after their first shot.

Those interested in getting the jab at the station can make appointments via the city government’s vaccine appointment website or just drop in unannounced.

Meanwhile, the Chiayi County Health Bureau issued a press release on Monday announcing that those who did not make an appointment through the official website will be able to do so by telephone to get the first and second doses of BNT and AstraZeneca, CNA reported.
