China has forged ahead in vaccination drive, as some vaccination centers have been set up in rural areas, offering convenient for people to get vaccinated, especially the seniors, The Straits Times reported.

The rural vaccination effort is one example of how China has been marshalling state to boost the country's vaccination rate, which has almost quadrupled since April, the newspaper said.

China has set a target for 40 percent of the population to be fully vaccinated by the end of June, and more than 80 percent of people to be inoculated by the end of the year.

Chinese people's overall acceptance of vaccines - meaning they recognize that vaccination can effectively prevent diseases - has jumped to 85 percent, up nearly 40 percentage points from last year, a recent survey showed.

According to the National Health Commission, more than 845.2 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines had been administered across China as of June 10.
