Thais are more willing to be vaccinated against COVID-19 than those from any other country.

 

According to a poll conducted by YouGov, 83 percent of Thai people are willing to take the vaccine when it becomes available to them.

 

After Thailand, the study found that Britain and Denmark, at 80 and 70 percent, respectively, was where willingness to take the vaccine was high. 

 

Least likely to take the vaccine were the Polish and French, the study found.

 

The study said that there was distrust in France with regards to taking vaccines.

 

The news comes as Thailand is about to start issuing vaccinations against COVID-19.

 

Starting next month, frontline health workers and those deemed most vulnerable will be given the vaccine.

 

By April, the Thai government says it will have vaccinated 1 million people, while the second phase of vaccinations will begin in May and will eventually see 26  million people vaccinated.

The third phase of vaccinations will begin in early 2022 and will see 70% of the general population vaccinated so that herd immunity can be developed.

 

Earlier this week, Thailand’s Ministry of Public Health gave approval for local authorities to pay and run their own vaccination programs.

 

On Thursday, the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration suggested that it will spend as much as 10 billion baht on vaccinating 5 million of the capital's residents for Covid-19. 

 

In Pattaya, the resort’s mayor Sontaya Khunpluem met with local officials to discuss plans  to vaccinate 120,000 of the city’s inhabitants at a cost of 80 million baht.

Of course they are. - - trained from birth to take hundreds of unnecessary medicines everytime they visit the Dr, or over the counter supplies from every pharmacy in the country. 

I’d be interested to know the name of any doctor that can fix my wife's ‘women’s problems’, such as   Inability to reason Be calm under pressure Talk at less than 120 dB Under

Seems like it's not only Thailand that organises totally pointless polls.

Most of the Thai's i know seldom visit a doctor.

 

Example, wife of 16 years has never been since we've been together.

Same with my wife, kind of. She's been to see Doctors (baby, women's problems, etc.), but she's not big on pills.

Better than a stupid US covidiot !

First, can you please define the real meaning of the new trend word "covidiot".

After that, do they only exist in US, or are they spread over the world?

Last, when did I say it was worse?
