Over nine million doses of Covid-19 vaccines administered in China

BEIJING (Jan 9): More than nine million doses of Covid-19 vaccines have been administered in China, said a senior health official at a press conference on Saturday, Xinhua news agency reported.

Since then, more than 7.5 million doses have been inoculated among these key groups, said Zeng Yixin, deputy head of the National Health Commission.

With the previous 1.6 million doses targeting groups with high risks of infection, a total of over nine million doses have been inoculated in China, Zeng said.
