Q: Where can I buy syringes in Shenyang?

I take testosterone cyp injections every two weeks (medically necesary).  My problem is that while I brought plenty of medicine, I did not bring enough syringes. I cannot find out where to buy them here.  Does anyone have any idea?  I went to the local pharmacy and showed them what I need, but they just shook their heads.

Try a pharmacy next to a hospital. When a friend was hospitalized, the nurse suggested, not sure why, that the family bought things like IV lines themselves to get imported quality (rather than the default stuff the hospital uses) Next to at least two hospitals here in town, there are shops where you can buy anything from bandaid to hospital beds. 

 

If not, taobao, not sure I'd trust this kind of product from taobao.

Dear Gary,

 

I have personally used each of these two hospitals below.  They do have a large dispensary and a very large patient outclinic.  They are the only two hospitals in Shenyang officially approved to treat foreigners.  I have provided you with the names and telephone numbers of English-speaking doctors.

 

Contrary to what others have written, I would never, ever, ever buy a syringe from a chemist in this country.  I would purchase one directly from a hospital dispensary and have the dispensary open an unsealed box in front of me.  They are usually quite obliging.

A:Getting my second dose of Moderna in a couple weeks. This is perhaps the only benefit of being in the US now. Then I can go to one of the countries that allows vaccinated tourists. IMO, worth the wait. @Nasboroguy: The Chinese government has already admitted that their two vaccines are not as effective as they initially said. No big surprise. Now they are talking about mixing Sinopharm/Sinovac with Astrazeneca. Covid may be (barely) contained in China, but as long as the billions of people there haven't received an effective vaccine, the entire country will be at risk of continuous outbreaks such as Thailand is dealing with now. If you have access to an effective vaccine (there are a few including Pfizer, Moderna, and even Sputnik V) then I would just get it. Sure, the effectiveness will wane after a year or two, but that's what booster shots are for. Although I don't understand why people wouldn't want to get a vaccine, I respect their decision not to get it. As for myself, I feel as if a tremendous burden has been lifted and I can soon walk into a bar for a pint (just not in the US, haha). -- Quinn68
