Covid-19: Thais told to get vaccinated for good of the country

Thai caption: Lucky - new technology is not a fad

 

A leading academic at Thailand's oldest university faculty has urged his compatriots to be patriots and get vaccinated against Covid-19.

 

If enough people behave with the future of the country in mind then the virus can be run out of Thailand.

 

The stirring call comes from the dean of the faculty of medicine Siriraj Hospital, Mahidol University, Dr Prasit Wattanapha.

 

He reckons that if 70% of all people in Thailand have immunity it's goodbye to Covid.

 

Channel 7 reported that some Thais fear the vaccine and others fear Covid. 

 

A vaccine must be safe and effective. Twenty companies are working on four different kinds of vaccine

Should this not be the government's job to provide the taxpayer with the vaccine at no cost?

Erm. So where can I be vaccinated please?

Might need to order some first and pay for it 🤔

I’m not sure how 42m people (around 70% of the population) can get vaccinated with 14m doses (the number the government has apparently ordered).

I don't think they have enough vaccine to do 25% (2 shots each) of people let alone get it to 70% (should be minimum 80% ) and their own wont be ready until at least May from what they have said before .

The future of the country in mind? Tell that to the generals who have dropped the ball on vaccine purchase and just make excuses as to why, instead of taking responsibility for the fact and pulling their fingers out to get as many doses as possible, delivered, as soon as possible! Thats what the people of Thailand want!

So, what happens to people like my daughter, who lives here, and was severely vaccine injured? She cannot ever receive another vaccine. I hope whoever is making the rules takes this into consideration.

It has already been announced that the vaccine will be free for all citizens.
