連至 Nantou applies for the import permit of BNT vaccines and the application has been issued, June 24 完整照片 The formal process of importing vaccines that the Nantou County government asks the central government to open up has begun. On the 24th, County Magistrate Lin, Ming-Chen said that the entrusted ShareHope Medicine Co., Ltd. formally issued an application on June 23 to the Food and Drug Administration of the Ministry of Health and Welfare for a special project import permit of Pfizer/BNT vaccines, which is two months earlier than the original schedule. Lin hopes that the central and local governments will work together to fight the epidemic and take care of the health of the people.

County Magistrate Lin said that the county government has tried its best to raise up to NT$ 640 million and commissioned ShareHope Medicine Co., Ltd. to apply for the import permit of 800,000 doses of BNT/Pfizer vaccine endorsed internationally by the WHO. The reason for the two months early schedule is that Lin had been urging the company every day to get the documents ready as soon as possible. The sooner the application is issued, the sooner we feel at ease. Lin said that the Yonglin Foundation and TSMC have already issued an application to the central government without BNT’s authorizing document; if both the applications of the Yonglin Foundation and TSMC can be approved, the application of importing vaccines that Nantou County Government and the Hualien County Government commissioned ShareHope Medicine Co., Ltd. to issue should be approved under the same conditions as well.

County Magistrate Lin said that by working together, the central and local governments can prevent the spread of the epidemic and solve the economic problems faced by the people. Industries are limited because vaccines are not sufficient, as well as their importation. By working together, the central and local governments will be able to buy more vaccines. Once residents of Nantou County receive the second shot, all industries can immediately resume normal operations. Lin believes that it is the wish and demand shared by all people to work hard and help the economy thrive.
