China - World’s largest vac­cine player

BioSpectrum (Asia) - - ANALYSIS -

China is the world’s largest vac­cine pro­ducer. There are 45 vac­cine man­u­fac­tur­ers, which can pro­duce 63 kinds of vac­cines and pre­vent 34 kinds of in­fec­tious dis­eases. The an­nual pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity ex­ceeds 1 bil­lion doses. It is one of the few in the world that can solve all of them by its own abil­ity. One of the coun­tries plan­ning im­mu­niza­tion vac­cines, do­mes­tic vac­cines ac­count for more than 95 per cent of the ac­tual na­tional in­oc­u­la­tion.

China has strict man­age­ment sys­tems and re­view mech­a­nisms for the “R&Dpro­duc­tion-dis­tri­bu­tion-in­oc­u­la­tion” of vac­cines. In 2011, the Chi­nese vac­cine reg­u­la­tory sys­tem passed the World Health Or­ga­ni­za­tion (WHO) vac­cine na­tional reg­u­la­tory sys­tem as­sess­ment, and in 2014 passed the WHO re­assess­ment.
