This virus is named Coronavirus Disease-19 which is abbreviated as COVID-19. Meanwhile, after the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic, China faced 'xenophobia' and racism from many parties regarding the first case of COVID-19 appearing in Wuhan City, Hubei Province in China, with no exception even from Southeast Asian nations. This paper will discuss the goals of the People's Republic of China in carrying out Vaccine Diplomacy in the Southeast Asian Region. With the decline of China's image, xenophobia and racism have emerged, and China has taken the initiative to carry out diplomacy to improve its image.
