Taiwan to build "super-large" plant for vaccine production capable of 20-million shots monthly

Taiwan will soon build a vaccine factory capable of producing as many as 20 million vaccines per month according to Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC).

According to Taiwan Health Minister and CECC head Chen Shih-chung, he had applied with the National Development Council to build a "second vaccine plant" with a "super-large" production capacity. 

The plant with 20-million shot monthly will supply the needs of the nation and opening the door to exports.

Clinical trials for domestic vaccines being developed by Medigen Vaccine Biologics Corp. and United Biomedical are progressing smoothly and that the resulting technical data is promising, CECC said.

Taiwan could begin administering its home-made Covid-19 vaccines as early as July while using imported vaccines to begin its immunisation campaign.

Taiwan has kept the pandemic well under control thanks to early and effective prevention.
