The Facts

Germany sent its first batch of BioNTech COVID-19 vaccines to immunize German expatriates in China on Wednesday, marking the first COVID-19 vaccine delivery to the Asian country.
The German government said it would offer primary immunization and booster shots of vaccines approved for use in the EU to German citizens over 12 years old in China for free.
However, the program doesn’t include citizens’ family members of other nationalities. The immunization program may extend to children under 12 in the future.
A German government spokesperson added, “We are working on the possibility that besides Germans also other foreigners can be vaccinated with BioNTech.”
The spokesperson further confirmed that Chinese citizens in Europe can now be vaccinated with China’s Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine.
