- Jan 11, 2021-

On the 9th, the State Council’s Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism held a press conference.


Zeng Yixin, deputy director of the National Health Commission, said that since December 15th, my country has officially launched new crown vaccination work for key populations. So far, nearly 9 million new crown virus vaccination has been carried out, which proves that my country's new crown virus vaccine has a good safety.


In the next step, we will comprehensively and orderly promote the vaccination of high-transmission groups, high-risk groups and the general population, and implement free vaccination for all.


Li Tao, deputy director of the National Medical Security Administration, said that the cost of vaccination will be borne by the medical insurance fund and finance, and residents will not bear the cost.


Li Tao said that through the main use of the medical insurance fund's rollover balance and fiscal funds to jointly bear the costs of the new crown vaccine and vaccination, it will not affect the current medical insurance fund's income and expenditure, nor will it affect everyone's treatment.


Zeng Yixin said that free includes the cost of vaccine and vaccination.He said that during the vaccination process of key populations, we also found that individual places were charging personal fees. We issued a document in the name of the Comprehensive Group of the Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism of the State Council, requesting immediate rectification.
