China has administered 1 billion doses of the COVID-19 vaccine. The current vaccination campaign is the largest vaccine drive in the history of China.

Since late March, China has been increasing its vaccination efforts. According to their National health Committee, it took China 25 days to climb from 100 million doses to 200 million doses, 16 days to increase from 200 million to 300 million, and six days from 800 million to 900 million.

According to the Deputy Head of the National Health Committee Zeng Yixin, they aim to vaccinate 70% of the population by the end of this year.

A total of 21 COVID-19 vaccines are in clinical trial in China while only three have been granted emergency use within the country.

While China is accelerating its vaccination efforts, it has also been concurrently aiding the rest of the world in providing vaccines. Up till date, they have donated and supplies more than 350 million doses of the vaccines to 80 countries.

China’s top epidemiologist Zhong Nanshan stated that “Chinese vaccines are playing an increasingly greater role as the country works to fulfill its commitment of making COVID-19 vaccines a global public good,”.
