According to the National Health Commission, as of July 28, 31 provinces (autonomous regions, municipalities) and the Xinjiang Production and Construction Corps reported a total of 1.6 billion doses of COVID-19 vaccination.

China is ramping up efforts to vaccinate its citizens as a result of the cooperation of vaccine research and development, production, transportation and disease control departments. At present, vaccines are sent from manufacturers to all parts of the country every day, and logistics personnel brave high mountains and treacherous waters to quickly and safely deliver them to local disease control departments.

A few days ago, a Xinhua news reporter followed one of the vaccine transport trucks and witnessed how it was delivered after a journey of thousands of kilometers.

On the evening of July 20, truck drivers Lu Yanhui and Liu Si who were responsible for the transportation of the vaccine, set off from the Sinovac Biotech factory in Beijing. Their mission was to transport a batch of vaccines to the Ganzi Tibetan autonomous prefecture in Southwest China's Sichuan province, more than 2,000 kilometers from Beijing.
