Shanxi province has included foreign nationals in Shanxi (over 18 years old) in the eligible group of domestic-made COVID-19 vaccination.
In accordance with the principle of “informed, voluntary and at-own-risk”, eligible foreign nationals can make appointments on COVID-19 vaccination in the following ways:
First, foreign nationals working in Shanxi make appointments through their work units, and foreign teachers and students make appointments through the universities.
Second, foreign nationals in Shanxi make online appointments through four self-service registration and query platforms, including Alipay Health Code, Health Shanxi official WeChat account (Health Shanxi APP), Sanjintong APP, and WeChat Pay - Health.
Third, foreign nationals can make appointment directly with the designated vaccination sites.
Considering the local situation and the distribution of foreign nationals, each city selects one or two fixed vaccination sites equipped with better facilities for foreign nationals to receive COVID-19 vaccination. The relevant information will be released by each city.
Foreign nationals who have been covered by the social security and medical insurance of Shanxi Province enjoy the same treatment as the insured Chinese citizens and receive free vaccination, while those who are not insured are vaccinated at their own expense. Charging standards are available at each vaccination site.
Foreign nationals should show their permanent residence ID card of the People’s Republic of China, passport or valid residence permit for vaccination. They are required to follow the procedures, including signing informed consent form and disclaimer, do personal protection and proactively inform medical personnel of their health status. Medical professionals should judge their eligibility of vaccination. After vaccination, the vaccinated should remain at the observation area for 30 minutes, and leave if there are no abnormal symptoms. The vaccinated should pay close attention to their physical condition within 14 days after vaccination. If there is any discomfort, they are suggested to consult doctor in time.
After vaccination, the risk of infection can be reduced to a certain extent. The protective effect of any vaccine cannot be 100%. Even after the vaccination, it is necessary to maintain good hygiene habits such as wearing a mask, washing hands frequently, and keeping social distance. If necessary, they are suggested to cooperate with relevant departments for nucleic acid test.
