City Publishes Information on CNY Holiday Medical Service AvailabilityThe public are advised to check out the availability of the City’s medical services for the upcoming Chinese New Holiday (February 15 and 20).
During the six-day-long vacation, a total of 22 hospitals and 7 Taipei City Hospital branches provide around-the-clock emergency service, while 2 community hospitals will remain open during designated times. Most medical facilities either suspend part or all of their outpatient services between February 15 and 19. Regular services will resume on February 20.     
The Department of Health (DOH) also reminds people to pay heed to their health, avoid binge eating and stay warm during cold weather. Individuals experiencing symptoms such as fever, coughing, asthma, stomach pain, chest discomfort, or others should seek medical attention immediately to prevent exacerbation of the symptoms and complications.
In light of the severity of the influenza pandemic, DOH noted that an additional 127 outpatient sessions for flu treatment will be operating at eight hospitals. Free influenza vaccines are also available at a number of community clinics. More information can be found at the official website of DOH (https://goo.gl/53xSJo)(Chinese).   
The health agency also reminds chronic disease patients to retain adequate supply of medications for the period. Those requiring medical attention are encouraged to go to the doctor at nearby clinics first for more efficient treatment and at the same time realizing the spirit of a sound medical referral system.
