Beijing has fully vaccinated more than 80 per cent of its adult residents, as the Chinese capital leads other global hubs in the race for herd immunity against Covid-19.

The city has given out a total of 33.4 million Covid-19 vaccine doses since China kicked off its campaign to vaccinate its more than 1.4 billion people in December,.

Some 15.6 million of the city's residents had been fully vaccinated as of Wednesday (June 16), accounting for 72.4 per cent of its total population.

Elsewhere in Asia, about 4 per cent of Tokyo's residents have completed their inoculation, and opinion surveys have indicated that large numbers of Japanese see the roll-out as being too slow.

Just 16.3 per cent of people in Hong Kong are fully vaccinated as the government battles widespread hesitancy.

Still, China has not changed its rigid virus-containment playbook of largely closed borders, mandatory quarantine periods and rigorous Covid-19 testing.


6月16日,北京市18岁及以上人群新冠疫苗全程接种率突破80%。截至16日12时,全市累计接种新冠疫苗人数为1790.1万人,其中1559.4 万人已完成全程接种。全市累计接种新冠疫苗3339.3万剂。
