More than 1 billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered across China as of Saturday, the National Health Commission (NHC) said Sunday.
 

China accelerated its pace of free COVID-19 vaccinations for the whole nation since late March. The country hit the landmark figure of 100 million vaccinations on March 27.
 

The vaccination rate spiraled further to hit 200 million on April 20. The pace of inoculation kept speeding up with 300 million jabs on May 7, 500 million on May 23 and 1 billion on June 19.
 

At present, the country is conducting clinical trials for 21 COVID-19 vaccine candidates. While four vaccines have been granted conditional marketing approval, three have been authorized for emergency use in the country.
 

China's nationwide vaccination campaign is open to people aged over 18. The country has also approved the emergency use of domestic inactivated vaccines on people aged 3 to 17. Detailed policies will be formulated for the immunization of this age group based on the specific COVID-19 situation.
 

By the end of this year, at least 70 percent of the population in the country is expected to be vaccinated against COVID-19, said Zeng Yixin, deputy head of NHC.
 

The large-scale vaccination campaign carried out across the country has shown that Chinese COVID-19 vaccines are safe, said Zeng, noting that the incidence rates of common side effects caused by the vaccines were well within the international standards.
 

全国新冠疫苗接种超十亿剂次

截至6月19日,全国新冠疫苗接种超10亿剂次。国内大规模接种充分显示,我国疫苗具有良好的安全性,一般反应、异常反应发生率均低于2019年我国常规接种的各类疫苗平均报告水平。预计到今年年底前,完成至少70%的目标人群接种。
 

2020年12月15日,我国正式启动重点人群新冠疫苗接种工作。今年3月下旬开始,国家加快推进国民全人群免费接种。重点行业、重点单位、重点地区,接种人群一扩再扩;临时接种点、流动接种点、重点场所上门接种齐头并进。目前,我国新冠疫苗接种已覆盖18岁以上人群。在全国各地,不少高龄老人也加入了接种队伍,年龄最大者超过了100岁。
 

3月24日,我国启动新冠疫苗接种“日报制”。从1亿剂次到2亿剂次,用了25天;从2亿剂次到3亿剂次,用了16天……5月以来,新冠疫苗接种进入“加速跑”,从9亿剂次到10亿剂次仅用5天,日均接种量超过2000万剂次。
 

目前,我国已有21个新冠疫苗进入临床试验阶段。有4个疫苗在国内获批附条件上市,3个疫苗在国内获批紧急使用。
