Undocumented Pinoy workers in Taiwan, appealed to include them in the vaccination program

Currently, about 50% of population in Taiwan have 1st dose of vaccine including migrant Filipino workers. However, this does not include undocumented Filipino workers andthey are appealing to be included in the COVID-19 vaccination program of the Taiwanese government.

The Manila Economic and Cultural Office (MECO) has filed a diplomatic appeal with the Taiwanese government, to include migrant workers in the vaccination program since the program began.

“...when we filed that appeal, marami po ang nagprisinta na tumulong sa akin, mga Congressman, mga tao sa likod ng Taiwan, pati mga NGO natin dito, sumama sa atin at nag-file ng appeal," said Atty. Gilberto Lauengco, MECO Resident Representative.

"Then after that, humingi na po ako ng tulong sa representante ng Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia, kasi sila din may migrant worker,” Lauengco added via ABS-CBN News.

The undocumented workers appealed to the Taiwan government to include them in the vaccination program because they also want to be protected against the infectious Coronavirus.

Documented workers already have their first dose specially those who are working domestically.
