As of 24:00 on August 23, a total of 20,095,300 doses of COVID-19 vaccines, totalling 11,232,280 people, had been administered in Dongguan. At present, 9,080,800 citizens had received both doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, meaning 86.8% of Dongguan's population had been fully vaccinated against the disease.

Based on the seventh national census, the permanent population of Dongguan is 10.4666 million. Based on this number, Dongguan's overall immunization rate of the whole population and the rate of people over 12 years old both rank first in the province. Dongguan accomplished the task more than a month in advance, where the province originally scheduled for the end of September.

Zhong Nanshan, an academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering, said that given an average efficacy rate of 70% for China-developed vaccines, at least 80 per cent of China's population should be fully vaccinated to establish herd immunity against the virus. According to the figure, Dongguan now has 86.8% of the entire population to be fully vaccinated, above 80%. That is, herd immunity in Dongguan has been achieved.

Dongguan will continue to promote the vaccination work for people over 18 years old, especially for those over 60 years old. Furthermore, the vaccination work for people aged 12 to 17 will also be carried out in an orderly manner so that students who meet the requirements but have not yet been vaccinated can receive their doses as soon as possible.
