  • "Only when more people are vaccinated can the effect of (vaccines) be truly realised," Wang noted, adding "people under 12 years of age, who are yet to be vaccinated, should be considered too."

  • China's two main vaccines, developed by Sinovac and Sinopharm, have been approved for use in children from the age of three.
