Forums > Living in Kunming > COVID 19 vaccine for foreigners

My wife got a message about vaccinations being available, and specifically she got it from same district office desk that processes my work permit.

The communication still failed to mention whether the vaccination is available for foreigners - could have been just to remind foreign-invested enterprises (one of which I'm managing) to get their Chinese staff vaccinated.

Also our son's kindergarten (and I assume every other institution) alerted of outbreak in Ruili and had everyone report if anyone from their household has been in Ruili in past weeks.

Besides practical health reasons and travel restrictions during he pandemic, I'm sure that UN agencies are also closely watching for WHO's forthcoming report on the biological origins of the pandemic. There are makings of a PR disaster for both UN and China.

If "having to" leave the country amounts to being deported, I'm fairly certain that it goes to same category with the Chinese government paying the flight tickets in order to get the foreigner out of here. That is, they would pay to get you shot.

Under milder circumstances for the exit I don't know, but I suspect that having to leave the country will not allow one to get a jab any faster than foreigners here in general - unless one is in position of some added privileges.

Based on my experience, as long as the text content contains all the needed information in readable form, the form(at) is not so important.

But I do assume you'll be better off with a printout from Word or whatever, rather than hand-written...

Not sure if this applies to Italy visas, but for many other European countries:

The Joint Visa Application Center that used to be in Beichen, is now relocated to an office building at intersection of .Shibo Road and Bojin Avenue.

I'm not a big fan of croissants anyway, and donuts I have not found in either of the establishments you mentioned.

@Dolphin: "savouring the croissant helps to cultivate appreciation. ie appreciating simple things rather than always feeling discontent that you don't have enough"

Perhaps, but it equally helps to cultivate ignorance of all the labor that has been put into creating that experience for you. At least I would allow you to feel discontent on behalf all the people who don't have enough, whether they had part in creating the croissant or not.

I't shouldn't anymore be about what you have or don't have, but what the other 7.7 billion (minus 1) people have or don't have. That's where the musings of Buddha (as quoted above) go wrong in this day and age.

There perhaps was a time, when embracing reality same way you would savour the croissant, could have been beneficial to achieving an enlightened state of mind.

But today, many would call such view on life quite the opposite of enlightened - it could be called ignorance or covering your eyes from all that is wrong. Perhaps that's suitable in Chinese context.

There, I connected the croissant to politics.

@sezuwupom : "JanJal is living the good life [...] Igor's delivers to your door."

You forgot to mention that I recycle and care for environment, which is why I would prefer to pick up my bakeries on my way rather than have someone on scooter deliver it wrapped in plastics. Even if it would leave the plastic maker and the scooter driver jobless. They could find new jobs in Just Hot, which I keep in business.

But I wish best of luck to Igor's. If location is everything, they have some catching up to do to reach out to potential customers like they are doing in this paid review..
