  1. Taiwan could receive COVID-19 vaccine in February at the earliest

    COVAX, backed by 190 participating countries to ensure equitable worldwide access to COVID-19 vaccines, published its first distribution list Wednesday, with enough doses for dozens of countries to immunize more than 3 percent of their populations by mid-2021.

     Taiwan and other countries that are not United Nations members will be allotted 1.3 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine in the first round of vaccine distribution by the global vaccine-sharing initiative COVAX, with the earliest delivery date being February, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) said Thursday.
