Foreigners and residents of Hong Kong and Taiwan can schedule a COVID-19 vaccine appointment by searching and following the WeChat Official Account ‘jkshenzhen’ or 健康深圳. Afterward, click ‘Services’ > ‘For Foreigners.’ 

Personal appointments and group appointments are available. Group reservations need to be organized by enterprises, institutions, chambers of commerce, or other social organizations in Shenzhen. 

Phone reservations are only acceptable at the designated vaccination sites if an online reservation fails. Technically, vaccinations will not be provided for those without an appointment. 


The city currently has eight designated vaccination sites for foreigners as seen in the table below. They will also remain open during the Labor Day holiday from May 1-5.

The vaccine costs RMB100 per dose for those without medical insurance. Those who have bought medical insurance can receive the vaccine for free.

Type of Vaccine

The vaccine offered is an inactivated SARS-CoV-2 Vaccine (Vero Cell). 

You can choose which manufacturer (Sinovac, CanSino, Zhifei, Beijing Biology, Wuhan Biology) you’d prefer in the appointment registration. 

Second Shot

The second shot should be administered three to eight weeks after the first shot. If you weren’t able to receive the second shot within the suggested time frame, just try to get it as soon as possible. There is no need to start over from the first shot again. 

Chang Juping, deputy director of the Shenzhen Health Commission also said, “For the second vaccination residents can use the same type of vaccines produced by different manufacturers if they fail to find the type made by the same manufacturers.” 

As of April 21, 3.915 million people in Shenzhen had been vaccinated with 4.71 million doses administered.
