Coronavirus: China has been using Covid-19 vaccine candidate on key workers since July, health official says | South China Morning Post

Border officials and health workers among first to get jabs as they are more likely to get infected, government adviser Zheng Zhongwei says

Scheme will later be rolled out to include people working in the transport and service sectors and at wet markets, he says


China has been administering Covid-19 vaccine candidates to selected groups of workers, including medical staff and border inspection officials, for more than a month, a senior health official said on Sunday.

The government authorised the “emergency use” of the vaccine on July 22, Zheng Zhongwei, director of the National Health Commission’s (NHC’s) science and technology development centre, said in an interview with state broadcaster CCTV.

Zheng, who is also head of an expert panel that advises the government on Covid-19, said the decision to begin inoculating certain groups was “in line with the law”.

He did not say which product had been used or whether the programme involved more than one. Four of the seven vaccine candidates undergoing final phase testing around the world are manufactured by Chinese companies.

Russia, now China & the U.S. - the race to the vaccine for COVID accelerates. Now will these work as intended?
 
I'm betting I know who the anti-Trumps are rooting for and it isn't the U.S.
 
I do not trust anything coming out of China. Only a fool would.
 
i have reasons to be skeptical about the effective life span of any vaccine's immunity. The cornavirus has several tricks in its design that serve to undermine the user's immune system.

At the very least one would need an annual revaccination in order to maintain immunity.
