Notice of COVID-19 Vaccination for Foreign Nationals in Shantou
From May 14, 2021, Shantou will start COVID-19 vaccination for foreign nationals subject to local age eligibility restrictions, following the principle of voluntary participation, giving informed consent, self-funded and assuming personal responsibility for risks.
Foreign nationals who wish to be vaccinated can make an appointment through the WeChat service platform “粤健通” (scan the QR code below). China’s domestic inactivated SARS-CoV-2 vaccines will be used, and two doses are required for the entire course. Foreign nationals who have joined Guangdong’s social security and medical insurance scheme share the same treatment as other Chinese citizens, who can be vaccinated free of charge. A valid proof of medical insurance needs to be presented on the vaccination site. For those who have not participated in the social security and medical insurance of Guangdong Province, they will be vaccinated at their own expense---the cost is 100RMB per dose.
Appointment process: From May 14, foreign nationals can log in the WeChat service platform “粤健通” (scan the QR code below) to fill in personal information and make an appointment on the service page for foreign national’s vaccination. After the appointment is successfully made, you should bring your permanent residence ID card, passport or certificate of medical insurance to the designated site at the appointed time for vaccination. Before taking vaccine, you should sign both a form of informed consent and a statement of bearing personal responsibility for all risks associated with vaccination. Please take necessary precautions and proactively inform medical staff of your health condition so that they can determine whether you meet the vaccination requirements or not. If you show any discomfort symptoms within 14 days after vaccination, please seek medical treatment in time.
