Forums > Living in Kunming > COVID 19 vaccine for foreigners

A Turkish friend who teaches abroad from Turkey got his 2 Sinovac jabs at his embassy in early spring. Returning home this summer on holiday, he is already scheduled the Pfizer booster shot in August. Turkey seems to be rather advanced in this, with fully working contact tracing app and qr green codes for traveling.

bad organisation and cueus could be borderline acceptable in km, but it's annoying to know one old Chinese student who was given the vaccine in December to be able to go live in Germany where she's been throughout this year on an exchange programme.
this is a 6 months' delay not that easy to justify in terms of, i guess, missing id card number! At least the mobile and elderly laowai population should have been protected earlier, i reckon.

Certainly so, and a hint on how China keeps being more interested about business than culture made in original places like over here.

Doesn't do much justice either to science made in Kunming. The first Chinese mRNA vaccine is in phase 3 in Mexico and is made in town. I bet some of our laowais would have been happy to travel back home with that shot.

Gokunming should report on these matters as well as stating the number of monkeys culled for this same reason (and the thousands captive kept in Kunming for experimentation) to advance the understanding of pros and cons of living in Covid times...


No results found.


As usual, still, our human society does not care giving the necessary account of the issue. This is obviously an achievement that took years of research. How many monkeys were used and died for this. How costly was this project? What is the estimate for future human life savings vs. animal sacrifices?
Even if this is China, any state funded research should be bound at stating such data in their results.
