CHINA TO START OPENING COVID-19 VACCINATION PROGRAM TO GENERAL PUBLIC

Health officials said China plans to start opening its vaccination program to members of the public in southwestern Sichuan province early next year.

At least one million people have already received a jab in China after vaccine candidates were approved for “emergency use”, but so far they have been limited to priority groups such as state employees and international students.

China has five coronavirus vaccines in the final stages of development – but none has received official approval from authorities and the results of late-stage trials have yet to be published.

Officials said on Thursday (Dec 17) that 118,000 vaccine doses had arrived in the province so far, with plans to inoculate all high-risk groups by Feb 5 before rolling out the programme to the rest of the population.

They did not specify who developed the vaccines.
