Forums > Study > HSK Info needed

Just a quick update, I signed up for the HSK today and in addition to the fees mentioned above there was a 75 RMB fee for processing and mailing the certificate (to a Kunming address). The test is only available for the computer based version and you can only sign up online for the test center in Songming. Dali is also doing the test but the website says you have to sign up in person at the test center.

Forums > Living in Kunming > Missed first dose COVID-19 vaccine

Looks legit, quote:

From August 20th, Kunming provides COVID-19 vaccination for foreigners willing to be inoculated
(Press release)

Kunming Municipality has started the first inoculation of COVID-19 vaccines for foreigners in the city, on the basis that they are informed, voluntary and willing to be inoculated at their own costs and bear the corresponding risks. Foreigners who have missed the first inoculation expressed their willingness to be inoculated through various channels. Therefore, Kunming Municipality arranges two time slots to provide vaccination for foreigners willing to be inoculated. Let’s take a look at the arrangements:

1. Is there an age limit?

Foreigners who receive the inoculation must be 18 years old and above, meet the vaccination eligibility requirements as well as work, study or reside in Kunming.

2. What kind of vaccines will I receive?

The city currently uses the domestically developed inactivated COVID-19 vaccines. Two doses are required for the entire inoculation process with 21 days of interval.

3. How do I make an appointment for the vaccination?

(1). Foreigners in Kunming can make an appointment for vaccination through the following channels: international students and foreign teachers may file an application through their universities and foreigners employed in Kunming may apply through their companies. The universities and companies will collect and sort out their list of foreigners who need to be vaccinated, and then make appointment with the designated hospitals. Companies that make group appointment must provide the appointment list to the hospital. Other foreigners in Kunming may make an appointment with the designated hospitals by themselves.

(2). Appointment hotlines of the designated hospitals:
Kunming Calmette International Hospital: 15877990400.

4. What is the schedule of inoculation?

From 08:30 to 17:00, August 20, 2021 for the first shot;
From 08:30 to 17:00, September 10, 2021 for the second shot.

5. Where can I receive vaccination?

The vaccination location is: Kunming Calmette International Hospital.

6. What documents do I need to provide?

Foreigners need to provide valid ID when making an appointment for vaccination. At the vaccination location, they must show their Foreign Permanent Resident ID Card of the People’s Republic of China or passport and valid residence permit in order to receive vaccination, making sure that the relevant certificates are not expired on each day of receiving the vaccination. Those who are covered by medical insurance must bring a valid medical insurance certificate (Social Security Card) and a photocopy of the Social Security Card.

7. What documents do I need to sign?

Before receiving the vaccination, for your own protection, do inform the medical staff of your own health conditions. The professionals at the designated hospital will then determine if you are eligible for the vaccination. Those who are eligible for the vaccination will sign the Informed Consent and a Disclaimer Statement on receiving the vaccine.

8. Do I need to pay for the vaccination?

Foreigners covered by China’s social security and medical insurance will receive vaccination free of charge by presenting their medical insurance certificate (Social Security Card) on the spot. Foreigners not covered by China’s social security and medical insurance plan and are willing to be inoculated must be vaccinated at their own expense. The total fee is 100 yuan/shot (including vaccine fee and vaccination service fee), and the payment must be made in RMB cash.

9. What should I do after receiving the vaccine shots?

After receiving the vaccine shot, you need to stay in the observation area for 30 minutes at the site of vaccination and may only leave the site if there is no discomforts. If you experience persistent fever or other symptoms after vaccination, you must seek medical attention and report to the designated hospital immediately.

10. How do I get the vaccination certificate?

After the vaccination is completed, you may request the vaccination certificate from the staff of the designated hospital.

Had the same issue with wechat but I just set up an alipay account and the shield showed up. Didn't even need to add a bank account. Don't use alipay but figured I'll just have it in case anybody asks to see the shield. Full vax shield showed up about an hour after I got the second shot.

Forums > Living in Kunming > COVID 19 vaccine for foreigners

I originally tried to go with my wife's company and her coworkers in April, they got me on the list, allowed me in, figured out that they needed to manually input my information and were willing to do it, but, in the end they said I couldn't get the shot because my blood pressure was over 140. Over the last couple months I've asked places in my neighborhood and nobody knew anything about giving it to foreigners (unless you have the green card). Recently there has been a big campaign trying to get people vaccinated, even coming to our house, but still no concrete info about foreigners. Today on the walk home I asked the volunteers again and apparently they are letting foreigners get it now at the 国贸中心. Has anyone heard anything about that or gone there? Saw big lines at the Tuodong Stadium and Kunming Museum over the weekend so I'll probably wait until it's confirmed and there's no huge line to wait in... Also, for anyone with blood pressure issues, apparently now they'll only refuse you it's over 160. And one more thing for the drinkers, they told me no booze the day before you get the shot.
