BEIJING, Sept 16 (Reuters) – China has completed vaccinating over 70% of its 1.4 billion population against COVID-19 with full doses, data from health authorities showed on Thursday.
A total of 1.01 billion people in China have been administered with a full course of vaccinations as of Sept. 15, Mi Feng, a spokesperson at China’s National Health Commission, told a news briefing.
Five out of the seven COVID shots being used in China are two-dose products, including the most used ones from Sinovac Biotech and state-backed Sinopharm.
