Other than looking at data from countries with a successful vaccine roll out program how do they propose to "check the efficacy" of these vaccines? More showboating to fool the public into thinking they know what they are doing.

They are making such a big show of the two top dogs being vaccinated first, when really, those in actual need of the vaccinations should be receiving them first, and the leaders should show actual leadership, by getting the vaccine to health workers and people in areas where they are dealing with outbreaks.

 

The tail wags the dog in Thailand.

 

Those in actual need eh. Like Fatty the Watchman you mean?

Seems he is willing to risk having a vaccine that many European countries do not use for old folk, like anyone over 65! But then we all realise that he knows better than anyone else in the medical fraternity.

How are the public to know if they use Sinovac  / AstraZeneca / Pziefer or Moderna vaccine? Someone from Nakhon Nowhere sit beside them when the seal is removed from the package?

That's easy.

When you attend for the injection they ask which one you want, after your reply they stick the  appropriate label on the vial before showing it to you.

They will probably lie about it, they lie about almost everything else.

very likely that the thai government already has small quantity pfizer and moderna from diplomatic channels and all of them are vaccinated.

 

even astrazeneca turns out to be tried on control group only up to 65 yo, prayuth is now 67.

European countries are just managing demand because of the EU's failure to procure enough vaccines. Real life data from the UK shows the Astrazeneca vaccine is extremely effective in all age groups, with a single jab lowering your chance of hospitalisation by 94% (compared to 85% for the Pfizer jab).
