Government: More Than Three-Quarters of Chinese Fully Vaccinated

China has administered full doses of COVID-19 vaccines to 75.6 percent of the population through Saturday. That said, Mi Feng, spokesman for the National Health Commission, on Sunday.

 

This means that nearly 1.07 billion out of a total population of more than 1.4 billion people have now been fully vaccinated.

The country has so far administered a total of nearly 2.25 billion doses of Covid-19 vaccines, according to the government. China gives people whose last dose was administered more than six months ago a so-called booster shot. The priority groups for this are essential workers, the elderly and people with weakened immune systems.

China has the virus largely under control in most areas, and sporadic local outbreaks are relatively small compared to those in other countries.

Mi warned on Sunday that the risk is increasing that the latest outbreak in China, in which more than a hundred infections occurred in eleven provinces within a week, will spread further.
