Forums > Living in Kunming > COVID 19 vaccine for foreigners

The ladies at the door who checked my visa were from the PSB, I believe. Very nice, and urged me to go there tomorrow to get a new visa. Nobody asked for even the registration paper from police station. And nobody after that said anything about visa. Passport and crisp ¥100 will see you jabbed. As for receipt from PSB, it's supposed to act as temporary passport replacement, so I'd definitely go and try. Especially since it seems you won't have your passport back before vaccination is over. PSB's closed on the weekend.

If it's a no-go, an emergency solution might be to head over to PSB, who might already be done with your passport, or at least give it back to you for an hour so you can get vacc'd. There might be another chance in the future, but who knows when.
As I mentioned in previous posts, they were quite adamant about not giving a first dose when they were giving out a second dose, even though they are the same. Plus for foreigners they have to set up these special vacc points with PSB and English-speaking staff. It's most likely just my impression, but Calmette seems more relaxed, so I'd try there. Yan'an wanted me to use the scheduling QR code which told me no vacc (or soup) for you.

thanks for the info. did they inspect and/or copy your visa page? were they entering your visa number into an app, you think? also, does one need to scan and/or register with the healthcode miniprogram?

you'd probably have to put in the number afterwards, like on the jiankangma miniapp, or at the very least present it at the hospital. the fact that it's only 3 hospitals, and not every random vacc point, seems to show that they would have people on hand trained and equipped to handle these documents. perhaps at some later date it might be open to nonresidents as well. a chinese friend helped me ask around at hospital, and one can't get vacc'd under the table, and if could, it'd be useless, because it all needs to be in the system, so that one can use the vaccine passport. she said she heard that soon one won't be able to go much anywhere without it. so for people not able to get a res permit because of covid, now not able to get vacc'd because no permit...nice catch 22. anyway, those that go there on 14th can report if the res permit was required.
