Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha has allowed the private sector to import Covid-19 vaccine, Government Spokesman Anucha Burapachaisri said on Sunday.

 

He said private firms, however, must first register the vaccine with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) by submitting documents regarding the vaccine's quality, safety and effectiveness for Thai people.

 

"The FDA would evaluate the vaccine's quality, safety and effectiveness before allowing private firms to vaccinate people," he said.

 

He added that the FDA had summoned internal and external experts to accelerate the approval of Covid-19 vaccine.

 

"However, we still cannot ease regulations regarding the procurement of vaccine because it is a product related to the life of the people," he added.

And again the rich, famous and powerful people of Thailand will go first. Then the monks from the people's money. Then the officials from the bribes. And at the end of vacinne availability the people who make Thailand the great place to be. Hopefully for free.

 

Free? You'll pay around 6000 to 10,000 for a name brand vaccine at a private hospital.
