BANGKOK (NNT) - The first batch of Sinovac Covid-19 vaccines that arrived Thailand on Wednesday has passed the quality tests and are ready for delivery to state hospitals.

 

Department of Medical Sciences (DMS) Director-General Dr Supakit Sirilak said tests on 320 shots from the shipment showed that the vaccines had been produced according to the standards set out in the contract.

 

He said the DMS has already informed the Government Pharmaceutical Organization (GPO), tasked with overseeing the shipment, about the outcome of the quality testing.

 

The next step will be for the GPO to ask the Department of Disease Control to provide a list of hospitals set to receive the Sinovac vaccine. It is expected that the vaccines will be dispatched to the targeted hospitals in 13 provinces over the weekend.

sinovac is for below 60, astrazeneca also was researched on a control group under 65, so really there is nothing for seniors.

 

both of them are only an emergency use, AZ still in combined phases 2/3, sinovac phase 3

The shot will not kill you. I would take whatever is available now, and maybe get something else later, just to make sure. 50% today is a better bet than nothing until next year.

The thing I find odd about the Sinovac vaccine is the low implementation within China.

 

When you look at total numbers it's second only to the US, but with a much larger population.

 

You then look at doses per 100 people and China is almost at the bottom of the pack.

 

Why if it's so effective aren't the Chinese sticking doses in their own peoples arms as fast as they can?

 

Doesn't make sense to me.

Great that it passed but I'll also pass on using it. 

 

I've had more than my share of Chinese junk since I've lived here.

"Fearing embarrassment, Chinese vaccine makers are cherry-picking the data rather than publishing the results in full."

 

https://www.foreignaffairs.com/articles/china/2021-02-26/china-must-stop-hiding-its-vaccine-data

 

The Foreign Affairs journal you link here is published by the Council on Foreign Relations, which was the source of my post above about problems with past Chinese-made vaccines. They are a very credible source, and not any kind of anti-vaccine loonies.

 

Your linked article included the following re Sinovac:
 

"China’s Sinovac has been the worst offender. The company has reported only bits and pieces of efficacy data from its various overseas trials to suggest that its CoronaVac vaccine is highly effective.

 

Based on these reports, Chinese state-linked media claimed that CoronaVac was 100 percent effective at preventing severe COVID-19. But subsequent reports suggested 91 percent efficacy in Turkey, 78 percent in Brazil, and 65 percent in Indonesia.

 

The company’s Brazilian research partners reported just 50.4 percent efficacy—barely above the World Health Organization’s minimum threshold of 50.0 percent for recommending a vaccine at all. Even now, Sinovac’s Brazilian partners are withholding their full data “at the company’s request.”

 

It's getting very confusing. Just the other day, the doctors on US President Biden's CV task force did an opinion article in USA Today urging people to take any of the currently available vaccines, saying all -- including Sinovac -- had been proven to prevent CV serious illness and death, even if they had varying rates for preventing lesser illness.

 

Take whatever COVID vaccine you can get. All of them stop death and hospitalization.

 

Waiting for a more effective vaccine is actually the worst thing you can do to lower your risk of getting severely ill and dying of COVID-19.

 

"Our advice is simple: Take whatever vaccine is offered to you. Right now, all of the vaccines are the “best.” This is what we’re doing for ourselves.

 

The varying “effectiveness” rates miss the most important point: The vaccines were all 100% effective in the vaccine trials in stopping hospitalizations and death.Waiting for a more effective vaccine is actually the worst thing you can do to lower your risk of getting severely ill and dying of COVID-19."

...

All seven COVID-19 vaccines that have completed large efficacy trials — Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, Novavax, AstraZeneca, Sputnik V and Sinovac — appear to be 100% effective for serious complications. Not one vaccinated person has gotten sick enough to require hospitalization. Not a single vaccinated person has died of COVID-19."

That's assuming, I guess, that you can believe the Sinovac data that's been reported is truthful and credible.
