Jinshan residents receive COVID-19 vaccine booster shot

Nov 26, 2021

A total of 164,400 residents in Jinshan have received booster shots of the COVID-19 vaccine after Shanghai started offering the third additional dose for free from November 1.

Before the vaccination, recipients are asked about the type of vaccines they took in the first two injections and are given a corresponding booster shot.

Citizens aged 70 or above need to be accompanied by their family members or volunteers during their vaccination, the city's COVID-19 prevention and control leading group office has said.

Residents from Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan, overseas Chinese and foreign nationals will be able to receive the vaccine boosters later according to further arrangements.
