Prioritising both safety and speed as it faces a new wave of COVID-19 infections, Thailand is poised to launch its largest ever inoculation programme when the first batch of AstraZeneca vaccine arrives next month.

 

Contrary to recent reports, China’s CoronaVac is unlikely to be the first COVID-19 vaccine rolled out in Thailand.

 

“The Public Health Ministry has adjusted the plan because CoronaVac, made by Sinovac, has yet to be registered in China,” Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul said this week.

After reading the article, i find myself wondering if an extremely proud man would consider reversing his decision over the planned 112 charges,causing himself a serious loss of face after being backed into a corner, or if he will dig his heels in and the people of Thailand will be forced to wait even longer for  a chance to see their country start to return to normality and repair the terrible consequences of C19 restrictions.

I truly hope this does not affect the Thai people who need the assistance from both sides.

 

I read the same article and came away noting that there has been no direct word from AZ.  Just the Bangkok Herald's theory that it's the human rights and the charges against issue is the reason for reconsidering.

 

AstraZeneca executives were said to be unhappy that, on Wednesday, the Digital Economy and Society Ministry filed lese majeste charges against Progressive Movement leader Thanathorn Juangroongruangkit.

 

"Were said to be unhappy" doesn't sound like a quote on the record.

 

I can't help but wonder if the Herald is trying to use the public fear of Covid to pressure the gub'ment to drop the charges against Thanathorn, while the real reason for reconsidering is what AZ learned from watching what happened to Rolls Royce.

 

Anyone know the connection (if any) between the Herald and Thanathorn?  I also noticed the link to the original Matichon article is no longer available...  404 error.

 

I'm not claiming to know the answer.  Just wanted to start a discussion because I'm curious...

The article in the Bangkok Herald is taken from the original article in the Thai media you can use Google translate to get a good idea https://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&u=https://www.matichon.co.th/politics/news_2542625

 

That's the linked article giving me a 404 error.  Maybe because I'm a Covid refuge in the USA?  Is it available in Thailand?

You're right, I had the link bookmarked in my cache and refreshing it has now gone to 404 error, its been taken down by Matichon, little surprise there then!

Yeah.  That means it was probably interesting...  I took a OneNote image of the Herald article.  It may be gone soon, too.

What a complete cluster - but glad someone finally questioned why the Chinese vaccine was to be distributed and approved but not Moderna or Pfizer. Hopefully AZ will be effective and safe although it has yet to be approved in the USA 

Moderna and Pfizer are the tops right now.  AZ is some 70% effective, the others 95% or so.  But with this new variant that will be dominant very soon, who knows....

Just what are the pro's and con's of taking this vaccine? Does everything go back to normal? Can I stop wearing the mask? Can I go in and out the country without paying high insurance? Will they keep me locked for 14 days when I come in? Just what will the vaccine do for us other than save our lives?

What smaller ones have there been?

For starters they have the free flu vaccination programme every year.
