State Council's interagency task force briefing on promoting COVID-19 vaccination

The State Council's interagency task force held a press conference on Monday in Beijing to brief the media about issues on promoting COVID-19 vaccination. March 19, 2021

Shou Xiaoli:

Thank you, Mr. Li. Now we will start to answer questions. Please state the news outlet that you work for before asking questions. 


Many residents have received the notice for vaccination. Some others haven't. Are there means for them to get inoculated if they want to? Can they make appointments on their own and then go to vaccination spots for inoculations? Thank you.

Li Bin: 

We made comprehensive arrangements for this type of work to be carried out in an orderly manner when conducting the vaccination task. Mr. Chang will introduce the relevant information. 

Chang Jile:

Thank you for the questions. Mr. Li just mentioned that, high-risk groups will first get inoculated with COVID-19 vaccines, then high-priority groups, and finally other groups, according to the country's unified arrangement. Currently, all regions are devising practical plans to inoculate different groups of people at different stages according to the nation's overall arrangement. As far as we know, the current vaccination efforts around the country are mainly focused on target groups, most of which are involved in key industries and key places, and are mainly organized centrally by the units where they work, while some temporary vaccination points have been set up in places where target groups work and live. If a few targeted people couldn't take part in concentrated inoculations for personal reasons, they may get inoculated at vaccination units nearby afterwards, though, they need to contact vaccination units in advance, or they can make appointments according to the requirements of local health administrations, disease control departments and vaccination units. The vaccination task this time targets large groups of people and involves numerous vaccination spots. Many vaccination spots have been increased or set up for temporary use. Existing vaccination spots have expanded service capabilities. We are constantly optimizing vaccination services. We will also make timely public releases of information related to vaccination spots. People with questions about the inoculation of COVID-19 vaccines may consult local health departments, disease control institutions or vaccination units, online or via telephone. In short, we are currently advancing the inoculation of COVID-19 vaccines in an orderly and effective way, in accordance with the unified arrangement of the joint prevention and control mechanism of the State Council. We hope that all people will cooperate for this task to be done and get inoculated as early as possible to gain protection. Thank you.
