China To Provide COVID-19 Vaccines Free Of Charge: Government Official
SHANGHAI: China will provide COVID-19 vaccines free of charge once they become available to general public, government authorities said on Saturday.
At a press event in Beijing, Zheng Zhongwei, an official with China’s National Health Commission, told reporters that while manufacturing and transport of vaccines does have costs, the government will still be able to provide vaccines for free to individuals.
“Our people don’t have to pay a single cent for the vaccine,” said Zheng.
China has administered more than 9 million COVID-19 vaccine doses, National Health Commission official Zeng Yixin added during the briefing. Of that total, over 7 million were administered from mid-December to the present.
