  1. I will travel to Shenzhen next week and I’m worried about not being able to inject the second dose of vaccine against Japanese encephalitis. Is possible to find in any pharmacy in Shenzhen the second dose of the vaccine IXIARO?

    Thanks a lot,

  2. Thank you for your email!

    Our hospital does not have the vaccine that you metioned.

    According to the knowledge of our Pharmacist, there is no more Japanese encephalitis vaccine available in Shenzhen.

    Best Regards,

    i will be in hong kong and will need to purchase refill of HCG vial 5000 where is that possible

  6. Michelle,

    HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin), for any other purpose than weight loss will need a prescription from a doctor. The weight loss HCG, Atropin, and Serotropin can be found in specialized shops in Hong Kong. If you go to an OTC (over the counter) pharmacy in Mong Kok, they should be able to sell you a 5000iu x 2 pack, unless the rules have changed recently. The brand is usually Global Anabolics, since its a local Hong Kong manufacture. Be sure to get the mixing kit. I recommend only 1 vial, 20 day cycle, (important) 6 days a week. If your going for loosing 10+lbs, then 45 day cycle, two vials But that’s the limit. That’s why kits only have 40 syringes.

    Hi Brooks,
    Thanks for the reply.

    Thanks for the assistance

  11. Hi Brooks,

    I need some help in looking for a hospital in Shenzhen preferably well-known in female illnesses and has English speaking doctors as well. Can you please help?


  12. Dear Sir/Madam
    Usually, most of the foreigners in Shenzhen go to Peking UNIVERSITY SHENZHEN HOSPITAL when they are ill. At present, no hospital exclusively for foreigners has been set up in Shenzhen.
    If related to female disease or women Pregnancy Check-up or antenatal examination, they will go to Hong Kong for treatment,
    If you need treatment in Shenzhen, I can ask my female friend for help, she can accompany you to the hospital, free for guide fee.


    Best Regards

  13. Thanks Brooks for the helpful information. Would you also know what are the charges like for an initial checkup / consultation?

  14. The charges of Peking University Shenzhen Hospital is relevatively high comparing to other hospitals in Shenzhen. The initial checkup charge is about 10 to 50 Yuan and the examination expense of equipment such as X-RAY, CT etc. will be about 100 to 500 yuan. If you have a social security card and a medicare card, then part of those expenses can be reimbursed and the final cost that you bear will be only about 200 Yuan .

  15. Thanks Connie, can you also provide the charges for Shenzhen Humanity Hospital and the address as well?

  16. Advertisements of Shenzhen Boai Hospital can be seen everywhere in Shenzhen. The more advertisement it make, the more expensive its cost will be. The expense of China’s private hospital is very expense.
    Peking University Shenzhen Hospital is an authoritative hospital, therefore, there will many people everyday. If you go there, you must get up early and queue up there.

    I realize that in the response to the previous post by Salva, you indicated that you do not believe that there is any IXIARO vaccine for Japanese Encephalitis currently available. Has that changed at all in the past few months or will it be available at any point in the future?

    Is there any other form of vaccine for JE besides Ixiaro available anywhere in Shenzhen or in Hong Kong?

    Finally, I am a bit apprehensive about traveling to Shenzhen unimmunised, but must do so anyway for work for the next 12 months. Do you believe that there is any significant risk of JE within the confines of Shenzhen including the outer districts?

    I greatly appreciate your help and knowledge.


  18. John Smithman // July 6, 2010 at 12:31 pm //


    I am in a similar situation. Did you have any luck locating the vaccine?



  19. Hello. I’d like to find out the best place in Shenzhen to have vasectomy. And, also could you give me some idea of cost, please.

    Do you know where someone can get finasteride in shenzhen?

    I am in need of insulin syringes, and cannot seem to locate them here in Shenzhen. I could easily buy them in the pharmacy in the US, but when i went to a drug store here they were not able to help me. Can you tell me if I can purchase the syringes OTC here in China?

    Perhaps what store I can contact?

    Thank you!

    My wife and I will soon be moving to Shenzhen to work as teachers. I am insulin dependent and take both Humalin and Humalog evey day. When I resided in Shenzhen two years ago it seemed almost impossible to locate comparable insulin products. Are there any specific pharmacies who sell insulin and do you need a prescription? I purchased my insulin in Hong Kong previously but I know it would be more convenient to be able to locate it in Shenzhen itself?

  36. Recent Breast lift Augmentation in Feb at Shenzhen Humanity Hospital – Asthethic, Cosmetic & Beauty section when terribly wrong. Infection, swelling, blotching and pain for 2 weeks and finally 2 visits to remove the failed insertion resulted in disfigurement. Now the hospital and doctors totally ignore responsibility or help in correcting bodily injury medically. Am now left in a state with damaged distorted breasts and nipples. Attempt to contact and arrange for help came to nowhere as if they have all “Run Away” ..!! They charged more than 80,000 RMB for the Blotched job which left me with a horrible body now. The lead doctor is male from Korea who constantly fly out and un-contactable .

    Because they deserted me, I’ve to seek other non-cosmetic doctors for help medically, injections for the pain and infections numerous times. Till now and few days ago still visiting doctors for help.

    I’m now left totally hopelessly alone by those irresponsible greedy $$money making doctors to figure out what to do for help and medical repair/treatment to correct the damaged done. AM now resign to my very very bad luck and going into depression.
