China’s National Health Commission unveiled the latest plan for COVID-19 vaccination on Monday.
The commission said that the plan aims to raise the immunity levels of certain groups and further reduce the risks of severe infection and death from the virus.
The plan was issued by the State Council Joint COVID-19 Prevention and Control Mechanism.
It targets those aged between three and 17 who have not been infected with COVID-19 and have not been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.
It also targeted adults who had not been infected and had not received booster shots and people who have been infected but had not been fully vaccinated.
Uninfected adults above 18 years old can receive the first booster shots three months after they have been fully vaccinated.
However, those who had previously been infected with COVID-19 but had yet to be fully vaccinated could be administered a vaccine shot three months after the infection, the plan said.
