By BBN Staff: Belize is reportedly interested in acquiring COVID-19 vaccines from long-time ally, the Republic of China (ROC), Taiwan; however, Taiwan is unlikely to export any until it has excess doses for domestic use, according to Taiwanese media outlet Taiwannews.com.

The outlet further reported that Belizean Minister of Health, Michel Chebat contacted the Taiwan ambassador to conduct a “preliminary discussion” on acquiring the ‘Medigen Vaccine Biologics vaccine’.

The island nation only recently began administering the Medigen COVID jabs to its people with Taiwan President, Tsai Ing-wen being the first recipient.

“At a news conference Saturday, Central Epidemic Command Center chief Chen Shih-chung said that as long as there were Taiwanese who needed COVID shots, he would not consider exporting vaccine doses. He acknowledged the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MOFA) had contacted him, though he was not clear which countries planned to buy Medigen vaccines,” the report said. Taiwan’s vaccination coverage rate is at 41% for one shot and is still looking to import doses from overseas, the report added.
