The National Health Commission said on Tuesday that more than 2.11 billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines have been administered in China as of Sept 6. 

About 970 million people nationwide have finished the vaccination process as of Monday.

"The vaccination work for the group aged between 12 to 17 years old also is going well so far," said Wu Liangyou, deputy director of the commission's Disease Prevention and Control Bureau.

He said the commission will continue the vaccination campaign by improving communication and promotion work with the people.

"We will make efforts to arrange time periods and places for vaccination to be easier and enhance healthcare support to secure the safety of the vaccinated," he said. "More promotion is needed to let people take vaccines proactively."
