Geez, all the negativity. If followed thru I understand, it is very good news. And, the fact they can choose other approved vaccines.   From my experience dealing with them, I woul

Great news.  I'll take the jab as soon as it's here.  Unless it's from Russia or China! 😂

Think you mean 'Sertifikate ov Orthintisety'

By law the Thai government can place price controls on any retail sale of a product. It should do so with each registered covid vaccine to be distributed in Thailand and dispensed to users regardless from whom the dispenser is, ie., private hospital or clinic.

They can do that, but I don't think it's done much.  Especially considering the ridiculous prices some of the private hospitals charge!!! LOL

 

Hopefully, as stated above, it will be 6-10k Baht for the series.  Fingers crossed.

The never ending constant TVF negativity never stops. 
 

Good news, but the first comments imagine it will be fake, it will be too expensive, problems in Brazil, it will be available on footpaths, the Thai middleman will cheat etc etc.

 

All imagined. Nothing based on any facts. Only in their heads. Strange people.

They make it all up and talk themselves into living a life of extreme paranoia.

Oi, don’t come round these parts with your toxic positivity mate.

We have standards to maintain you know...

The Thailand Red Cross should receive any easily stored registered Covid-19 vaccine. 

 

As for temperatures. I assume the Thai Red Cross and local hospitals can store items at dry ice temperatures. It's not high tech compared to their 2-Tesla MRIs, gene sequencers, liquid oxygen tanks, etc.  The problem is storing very large quantities. Enough for commercial use should be OK.

 

Personalty, I want the 95% one. Looking forward to a day of fever now that I bought a good quality Infrared Thermometer.

If I can take a needle to the back of my left eyeball, which I have to do a few times every year, I'll sure be ready for a jab to the arm from Bumrungrad whenever they are ready for me. 

But I would like to know if there will be options for which vaccines to be used; my son, who has a degree in public health, says look for the Pfizer.

this opens the book on another load of questions,how do these private hospitals access the vaccs when govt cannot presently,i would have thought theyd confiscate it and use on the health workers not sanction it?why would the govt allow the rich to circumvent the process of govt vaccs.what of the costs and acceptance by authorities of such a process.?what if someone has an adverse reaction,whos responsible?its another mad corruption fuelled dash to the pay out,private hospitals -wow no moral compass what so ever.par for the course unfortunately.i find it hard to believe that this can pass muster when every other country so far says and acts as vaccination is a public right and the rich cant queue jump.we are living in a moral vaccuum if its allowed to pass,who do they source the vaccs from?pfizer astra are in full knowledge of this?i see the chinese are selling their vacc on open mkts but what do you expect from the buffet crew who gave us the virus,typical!theirs is 2nd rate anyway so i think if your gonna pay you will get a good one.this shows in the full light of day how corrupt the system is.

Letting rich jump queue to take Covid vaccine is not as bad as it sounds. They will become human guinea pig for hastily developed vaccine and the rest of the population will benefit from the early vaccinations results.

For people in business that require travelling such as offshore workers  etc it will be essintial and critical for them to get the flue shot so they can travel. I believe most people understand that. Most ordinary people do not need to travel in their daily life, so if I can cut the line, and get back to work in my home country, good, and Im willing to pay

Ummm....millions have already been jabbed.  So they'll hardly be at the front of the line.  Just the front here in Thailand, who's behind many other countries with regards to a jab.

1. Government can access now and is in process of importing

 

the import process until FDA registration is complete and that can be a long process. Right now, today, no private hospital can import the vaccine because no registered brand yet. And once registration is complete there is the problem of availability as manufacturers are being inundated with orders. A small volume order is  likely to go to the back of the queue - if manufacturer even willing ti take it.

Pijit Viriyamettakul, managing director of VIBHA, said VIBHA had pre-ordered 50,000-60,000 doses of Covid-19 vaccines from Moderna. It expects the vaccines to arrive in February 2021 and must be approved by the Food and Drug Administration before giving jabs to the general public.

It plans to charge 6,000-10,000 baht per person, Pijit said.

That is a big mark-up on a 1,000thb vaccine.

Yes, but I suppose that, unlike much of uninsured Thai society, big private hospitals will have some liability for getting it right, like the problem of malpractice insurance in the US; and that always runs up prices.
