Some local governments in China have begun offering COVID-19 booster shots to people over 18 who have already been vaccinated amid rising evidence supporting the ability of an additional dose to improve immunity.
 

The Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region said on Saturday that booster shots will be made available across the region for adults who have been fully vaccinated for at least six months.
 

Key groups will be prioritized during the initial stage, including people at higher risk of contracting the disease, such as workers in the cold chain, customs, transportation and health services sectors, as well as those who plan to travel abroad.
 

In addition, essential workers in the public service sector, such as police officers, community workers, elderly care and sanitation staff, will also be given priority to receive an extra dose, according to a notice released by Guangxi's disease control and prevention center.
 

It added that four types of vaccines will be deployed as booster shots. They are two Sinopharm inactivated vaccines, one created by the group's Beijing Institute of Biological Products and the other by its Wuhan Institute of Biological Products, one inactivated vaccine made by Sinovac Biotech, and an adenovirus vector vaccine from CanSino Biologics.
 

People intending to get an additional shot will be given the same vaccine made by the same company. If supplies of a particular vaccine run short, other vaccines of the same type but created by a different company can be used as an alternative, local authorities said.
 

Since mid-September, Tianjin and several cities in the provinces of Fujian, Hainan, Guangdong, Anhui, Hubei and Heilongjiang have announced the rolling out of booster shots for targeted groups.

今年9月,浙江、河南等地就提出启动新冠病毒疫苗加强免疫接种工作。截至目前,据不完全统计,安徽、福建、河南、黑龙江、湖北等10余省份已明确启动加强针接种。
 

在湖北,武汉、襄阳、宜昌、黄石、荆州等多地已启动新冠病毒疫苗加强免疫接种工作。截至10月10日,湖北已有4.071万人完成加强免疫接种。例如,武汉市已优先对金银潭医院和机场等重点区域的高暴露风险人员实施加强免疫,目前基本实现了全覆盖。
 

广西于10月9日正式启动新冠病毒疫苗加强免疫接种,并实施居民免费接种政策,已全程接种新冠病毒疫苗满6个月的18岁以上人群均可接种。
 

在福建,厦门、泉州、晋江等地已开启新冠疫苗加强免疫工作。厦门市卫健委提出,10月10日起,厦门市针对12岁以上、已经完成两剂次灭活疫苗或一剂次腺病毒载体疫苗接种满6个月的人群,启动加强免疫接种。
 

值得注意的是,据黑龙江省疾控中心10日发布消息称,完成新冠疫苗加强针接种的人群,健康码将由“金码”升级为“钻石码”,作为后续加强针查验凭证。
