mRNA Vaccines approved for German nationals in China

Beijing will grant German nationals living in China access to mRNA vaccines produced by Germany, according to the foreign ministry.

Beijing will allow BioNTech’s mRNA vaccine in mainland China but limit its use to German nationals, the Foreign Ministry said on Friday.

Mao Ning, a foreign ministry spokeswoman said that “China and Germany have reached an agreement on providing German vaccines for German nationals in China, and relevant arrangements will be discussed and determined by the two sides through diplomatic channels.” 

The move was expected after German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said last month that China will make BioNTech SE’s Covid-19 vaccine available to foreigners living in the country. 

Germany recently granted a permit allowing Chinese nationals in the European country to receive China’s Sinovac Covid-19 vaccine, a decision that Mao said the country welcomes.
