According to the unified arrangement of the joint prevention and control mechanism of the State Council, Liaoning province has launched a comprehensive COVID-19 vaccination campaign for expatriates in Liaoning. On the premise of voluntary application, informed consent and self-assumption of risks, expatriates of the appropriate age in Liaoning are included in the COVID-19 vaccination population of Liaoning province.

1. Age requirement

’The current age requirement for expatriates in Liaoning to receive COVID-19 vaccine is 18 years old and above.

2. Vaccine type

Currently, Liaoning uses a whole virus inactivated vaccine produced in China, which requires 2 doses.

3. Appointment for vaccination

Expatriates who wish to be vaccinated are advised to pay attention to the notification of their institutions and communities and to make appointments in an orderly manner. In principle, expatriates working in Liaoning can make appointments at their institutions, foreign teachers and students at universities can make appointments at their schools, and other expatriates in Liaoning can make appointments at their local communities or via “Liaoshitong” App. Once the appointment is made, each county (city or district) will arrange for expatriates in Liaoning to be vaccinated at the nearest designated location, taking into account the actual local situation.

4. Documents required

Valid documents must be provided at the time of registration. At the vaccination site, you must present your passport and valid residence permit to ensure that the relevant documents are still valid as of the date of the second dose.

5. Documents to be signed

Before vaccination, you need to sign an informed consent form with good personal protection, and inform your health condition. The professional will determine whether you are suitable for vaccination.

6. Cost of vaccination

Expatriates who are covered by social security medical insurance in Liaoning province and the municipalities under its jurisdiction can receive the vaccination free of charge upon presentation of their own medical insurance certificates on site. Expatriates who are not covered by social security medical insurance in Liaoning province and municipalities under its jurisdiction and who wish to receive the vaccination are required to pay for the vaccination at their own cost, which is currently 100 yuan per dose.

7. Precautions

After vaccination, you should stay at the vaccination site for 30 minutes for observation and leave the site only after there are no uncomfortable symptoms. On the day of vaccination, the injection area should be kept dry and clean. In case of persistent fever, seek medical attention and report to the vaccination site.

8. Certificate of vaccination

After completing the full dose of vaccination, the vaccination site will provide the vaccinator with a certificate of vaccination.

9. Personal protection

Although vaccination can produce immunity and effectively reduce the risk of infection, it is possible that some people may not produce enough antibodies after vaccination and may still be at risk of infection if they have not established an immune barrier. Expatriates are advised to maintain good hygiene practices such as wearing a mask, washing hands regularly and keeping a social distance even after vaccination.

10. More notes

Proof of vaccination is not a substitute for a nucleic acid test report. Expatriates are requested to cooperate with the relevant authorities for nucleic acid testing if necessary.
