China’s COVID vaccine will be ready soon

China’s COVID-19 vaccine will be ready very soon and its final stage testing is being carried out these days.

The Chinese Government at the earliest time possible laid out five technical routes including 1) inactivated vaccines, 2) recombinant vaccines, 3) adenovirus-based vaccines, 4) live-attenuated vaccines and 5) nucleic acid vaccines. Vaccine research and development has been carried out in an orderly manner.

Five Chinese vaccine candidates are under Phase 3 clinical trials in countries including the UAE, Brazil, Pakistan and Peru, and the Phase I and Phase II clinical trials of some other vaccines have been accelerated.

Following scientific rules and regulations, Chinese researchers and scientists have been working around the clock and making arduous efforts on the vaccines.

The Chinese Government and companies have been proactively participating in international cooperation on vaccines through bilateral and multilateral channels. Besides cooperation with the countries, China is also in close communication and cooperation with international organisations such as the WHO, Gavi, the Vaccine Alliance and the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations.

China is a part of the WHO-sponsored Access to COVID-19 Tools (ACT) Accelerator initiative and the Solidarity Trial for COVID-19 treatments. China has also joined COVAX to promote fair distribution of vaccines, ensure the provision of vaccines for developing countries, and encourage more capable countries to support COVAX. Chinese vaccines will be included in COVAX’s procurement list as soon as possible after their development, which will contribute to the accessibility and affordability of vaccines in developing countries.
