China has begun offering free COVID-19 vaccines to residents of Hong Kong and Macao who are Chinese nationals and are living on the Chinese mainland, the State Council's Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism said.

People with Chinese nationality from Hong Kong and Macao should present either mainland residential permits issued by public security authorities or proof of enrollment in mainland medical insurance programs to get vaccinated for free on a voluntary basis, and they will enjoy the same supporting policies as mainland residents, the National Health Commission said in a notice released on its website on Tuesday.

"Teachers and students from Hong Kong and Macao working or studying on the mainland will be treated in the same way as their mainland counterparts," it said.
