All Beijing residents will have access to the A/H1N1 flu vaccine starting today until December 13, the Beijing Daily reported.

The capital made the decision to extend the vaccine inoculation to all residents above three years old in the city in the wake of the further spread of the flu.

An A/H1N1 vaccination campaign targeting primary and middle school students was previously launched in the city. Students who weren't vaccinated at that time because they had seasonal flu before can get inoculated at over 400 outpatient services.

Local residents will be able to get the flu shot near their residences from 8:00 am-12:00 pm and 1:30 pm-5:30 pm from today by showing their ID or registered permanent residence cards.

Beijing is preparing A/H1N1 flu vaccines targeting residents 60 years of age and above, with the elderly expected to receive injections within the week. Pregnant women and children under three are not included, according to the report.
