Vaccine I refers to those free vaccines provided by the government for the public, including vaccines against major epidemic diseases such as hepatitis B, epidemic meningitis and tetanus. Vaccines in this category are all priced by the government and purchased through bidding. Vaccine II mainly covers vaccines paid by citizens themselves.

Some of the commonly used vaccines in the Vaccine II catalogue include Pneumonia Vaccine, Varicella Vaccine, Type B Haemophilus Influenzae Conjugate Vaccine, Influenza Vaccine and Rabies Vaccine. In China, Vaccine I market is dominated by state-owned enterprises. Foreign and private enterprises gain certain advantages in the Vaccine II market.
