Chinese people are moving around the country amidst a global epidemic like Corona. People are not roaming here because the ban has been lifted on roaming, rather they are roaming around in search of vaccine. China is offering experimental vaccines at select locations, claiming that those who are planning to leave the country for commercial purposes are traveling to these places.
China launched the Emergency Vaccine Program in July to provide essential employees. Now China has extended this program further and now people aged 18-59 can also apply for the vaccine online. The price of two doses of this vaccine is Rs 4,380 (400 yuan). Apart from this, an additional fee of Rs 308 is being charged per dose.
China’s Zhejiang is the first province to offer vaccinations to non-essential residents. This vaccine shots are still under test, to apply it, people have to tell in the application form why they are getting this emergency vaccine?
Vaccine shots of the Covid-19 in China have been provided for emergency only. Local residents come for advice and leave related information such as name, address, mobile number etc., then wait for further action.
The Emergency Vaccine Program being offered in China is following the World Health Organization as well as China’s review process. China’s vaccine manufacturers Synovic, Sinopharm and Casino are undergoing clinical trials. These clinical trials are being conducted in Brazil, Turkey, Indonesia, UAE, Egypt, Russia and Pakistan.
