Dozens of cities and counties in China require residents to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination before entering public places as a means to push more people to get inoculated, local authorities say.

Cities and counties in provinces including Zhejiang, Jiangxi, Anhui, Shandong, Shanxi and Jiangsu have issued similar rules, saying COVID-19 vaccination records will be checked in public places such as schools, markets, hospitals and others.

"We want to encourage more people to get the jabs," a staffer from the epidemic prevention and control department of Dingnan, Jiangxi Province, told China Central Television.

Up to Tuesday, China had administered 1.39 billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines.
