Beijing : Coronavirus vaccine is one of the prime focuses of many countries as they aim to recover their economies. Meanwhile, there are reports that China has already started the vaccination process; more than 500,000 people have already received the vaccine.

Another media report claims that the eastern Chinese city of Yiwu in Zhejiang province is offering walk-in Covid-19 vaccines to residents.

As mentioned in The Paper website, the vaccine has been administered on Friday at a city health service center. Residents are charged 400 yuan ($60) for two shots of the treatment, with an added service fee of 28 yuan, it said.

Most of the Chinese local governments have approved vaccination of people associated in emergency services like doctors, nurses, customs staff, diplomats and state-owned company employees who need to work abroad.

The vaccine was developed by Chinese company Sinovac Biotech and has not been fully tested or officially approved for marketing, according to Global Times. The center told the Shanghai Law Journal that people need only queue at the facility to get inoculated, and because of limited quantity it is offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
