The COVID-19 pandemic is sweeping the world and many developing countries are facing shortages of vaccines and other supplies. China has carried out a large number of foreign vaccine aid activities based on the humanitarian spirit and the concept of a community with a shared future for mankind. Based on theories and studies related to national image communication, this study proposes a mechanism model for national image communication from the political, social, and communication media perspectives. Among them, the political factor includes political values and political emotions, while the social factor includes social culture and social perception. By social network analysis, this study examines the emotional attitudes reported by recipient countries and initially confirms the communication logic contained in this mechanism. Through examining the validity of the mechanism and the attitudes from the recipient countries’ side, this study considers and makes recommendations for enhancing emphatic communication at both the theoretical and practical levels.
