Chen Shih-chung, Taiwan’s health minister, has announced that they will suspend second doses Pfizer-BioNTech Covid vaccine for children aged 12-17 years old because of concerns about myocarditis.

According to local Taiwanese media, he said that a panel made up of experts will examine the data regarding cases of myocarditis and pericarditis and decide the next course of action within two weeks.

He was quoted as saying that Taiwan’s Advisory Committee on Immuniization Practices had decided not to administer second doses to the 12–17 age group. They will meet in two week to take a final decision.

Chen stated that during these two weeks, Chen and other experts will review and collect data from the committee on cases of myocarditis or pericarditis in Taiwan and other countries.

Chuang Jen-hsiang (Central Epidemic Command Center spokesperson) stated that 1.1 million people between 12 and 17 years old have received their first doses of the Pfizer BioNTech vaccine in Taiwan.

17 cases of myocarditis and pericarditis were reported from these patients.

 Chuang stated that 14 of those patients were male, and three were female.

Some countries have changed their policies on administering COVID-19 vaccinations to adolescents. Hong Kong, for example, has reduced the number of doses of BNT from two to one for children aged 12-17. According to CNA, the U.K. recommended only one dose for children aged 12-18 years.

Chen admitted on Thursday (Nov. 11) that he had been smoking for many years. He also said that it was a bad habit that he finds difficult to quit. CNA reported that Wu stated that the HPA would do everything possible to help Chen quit smoking.

Chen laughed when asked by a reporter whether he would quit smoking to become an anti-smoking ambassador during Friday’s COVID-19 briefing. The report stated that Chen had previously been advised by his wife to do the same.

Chen clarified that Chen was not wearing a mask to the party because of restrictions placed on indoor gatherings following a 56-day lull without any confirmed COVID-19 cases.
