2nd local hospital offers COVID-19 vaccination for foreigners

On June 6, Tianshan Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital started the vaccination work for foreigners. So far, Tongren Hospital and Tianshan Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital provide vaccination service for foreigners in Changning.


Tianshan Traditional Chinese Medicine Hospital at 39 Yunwushan Road made detailed deployment from information registration, foreign language service, time-sharing appointment to guidance signs and other aspects.


In order to provide more convenient services for foreigners who come to vaccinate, the hospital dispatched doctors and nurses speaking English, French and Japanese to answer questions and carry out consulting services.


At the registration desk, a letter of informed consent is in English, Korean, Japanese and other languages, which can help foreigners understand the notices and contraindications of vaccination.

Together with the inoculation is a gift from the hospital.


More than 200,000 foreigners in China have been vaccinated against COVID-19, a foreign ministry spokesperson said on June 10.

Spokesperson Wang Wenbin made the remarks at a press briefing in response to a question regarding how China is facilitating COVID-19 vaccination for foreigners in the country.


In order to protect foreigners working, living and studying in China and build an effective immune barrier to the greatest extent, China has included the eligible age group among foreigners in the country into the scope of inoculation with domestic vaccines, he said.


Local governments have adopted a slew of measures including creating online booking channels, issuing multilingual registration applications and dispatching foreign language-speaking volunteers to make it easier for foreigners to get vaccinated, Wang added.

Over 824.8 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines had been administered across China as of June 9.
