BANGKOK (Reuters) - Thailand's Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has given emergency use authorisation for Sinovac Biotech's coronavirus vaccine, a senior official told Reuters on Monday.

 

"The FDA has approved or registered Sinovac's COVID-19 vaccine for conditional emergency use, effective Feb. 22," FDA deputy secretary-general Surachok Tangwiwat said, adding it was valid for one year.

There’s no way he’ll get the Chinese one. Remember that there are 50,000 or so doses of AZ on the way here, or already here. Who do you think they are for? Not Joe Public, that’s for sure.

I wonder who will profit from this Chinese deal? notice they didn't want to join covax and rather this sinovax over astrazenica maybe because nobody is allowed to profit from it? no brown envelopes in it for them?

Joining Covax means middle income countries (like Thailand) foot the bill for the whole program and they have no choice on which vaccine they get. They could potentially get a better deal for the vaccine they want if they negotiate directly.

The whole point people are missing is transmission of the virus is not prevented by those vaccinated. Thus, quarantine will continue and no tourists until Thailand achieves herd immunity.

Source? Again, this has not been proven either way.

It used to be.

 

There is a continuing stream of new variants like UK, South Africa, and Brazil's P.1 that all vaccines must deal with. The US just reported the first 'recombinant' event between the UK and a new California strain.

 

This opens the door to the next stage, virus-vaccine wars! Although ultimately man will win, Sinovac will likely again come up short.

 

Remember, Sinovac's vaccine is what China is selling overseas. Recall China's belated warnings about the virus as it bought up up the world's masks. The CCP frequently demonstrates its lack of interest in the world's well being. Do you want their vaccine?

 

 

Yes, I'd take it if it was offered to me. 

 

Ultimately my goal is to prevent me from becoming seriously ill from covid19 in the next year.  I believe it would help.

People on this forum keep saying the CP guy owns 14 percent.
