If it is the Chinese version, no thanks. I would rather be deported!

ditto for the Chula version.   Hopefully there will be a paid option to get Pfizer, Oxford etc. (not Sputnik).

Thailand ranked 56th for maths globally - I think they didnt do the 2 times multipler.

The only vaccine I would have an interest in, would be the Modern, Phizer, or another with an efficacy rate of at least 90%. The Sinovac has been shown to be of very low quality, and the results have been poor. Why bother with a junk vaccine?

 

Will the higher quality vaccines be available here? And at what cost?

No problem.

They just put another sticker on it.

You choose which name you want on it.

In fact, isn't the Vaccine produced by Sinovac labelled (or called ) "CORONAVAC".... Not "Sinovac"???

People working in the tourism or service sectors or those that are likely to come in contact with foreign tourists would be vaccinated in phase 2 from May. Expats and foreign workers are likely to be vaccinated in phase 3 from June. 

So how about an expat who works in the service sector and is likely to (eventually) come into contact with foreign tourists while currently already frequently coming into contact with local tourists?

 

At what stage will they receive their inoculation? Quite a tricky problem, huh?

 

But perhaps not. The only classifier here apparently is "expat". I also note that expats and migrant workers are grouped at the very bottom, i.e. they are the last ones to receive the vaccine. But that is not very surprising. It only goes to show once again where the government believes we belong.

Last year it was much the same in the UK. Now it's more like 10x that a day.

I've been taking fish oil for many years and never catch colds or flu. I'll go along with this one.

What could possibly go wrong? 

I've been weeing everyday since I was born and never been run over. As it obviously is infallible I now don't bother looking before crossing roads.

What's wrong with it. China is almost back to normal after using it.

"Dr Apisamai also said that the private sector will be able to procure its own vaccines, providing the vaccines have approval from the regulatory authorities."

 

Anyone know all the different vaccines that have been approved to date?  

I don't want the Russian or Chinese vaccines.

That's how I felt when working in a mortuary the other day. An N95 mask does not give you much confidence.

I'm waiting for the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Only one shot and can be kept at room temperature.

So they say. The draconian way they lock down has helped the most. Even if it only helps 50% of the time it will be a big help but I would still choose the others first.

It'll be rather like choosing which side of the road you'd like to drive. Choosing to drive on the right side in Thailand may not be entirely wise but, hey, it's your choice.

Why not alot of Thais do it especially motorcycle riders

Judging from the very recent experience of four of my friends in England, I'd really prefer to get vaccinated with the Pfizer version.  They had the Oxford/AZ shot and all felt at least mildly ill for two or three days: a small price to pay for the protection it appears to offer, but I'd sooner skip that part if possible.

 

The question of whether to get vaccinated at all simply shouldn't be on the table without a very sound medical reason.

I don't listen to the weasel words, reversals, insinuations and implications that have been rolling out for the last few months regarding vaccine availability and priorities. 

 

Until they actually have some vaccine in hand its just a fool's game. 

 

I'm prepared to wait it out and then pay for what's available that I can trust. 

 

My extension of stay is due end of May. My only wish is that immigration does not link vaccinations and renewals until after that point. It seems inevitable that they will eventually require it.

Well, if I might waffle a bit? I would prefer to get Pfizer or Astra-Zeneca. Somehow I do not think it will come to being deported. Too many political issues.
