On April 12, AmCham China held the first of many AmCham China Vaccination Days, where, in partnership with United Family Healthcare, we arranged for free COVID-19 vaccinations for all foreign nationals in Beijing’s Chaoyang district. It was an issue on which we had advocated strongly, since foreign nationals were not included in China’s initial vaccination program, and we are also working on similar arrangements for our Chapters around the country.
166 people attended the first day, and we will hold more sessions in Beijing this week, and beyond, before helping all the same people to get their second dose in 3-4 weeks’ time.
Among the vaccine advocacy issues we are working on include full market access for vaccines from outside China, as well as policies that broadly support a move towards fewer international travel restrictions, as we look to continue the business community’s return to normality.
