BANGKOK (TNA) - Two more producers of COVID-19 vaccine are applying for vaccine registration with the Food and Drug Administration.

 

FDA secretary-general Dr Paisarn Dunkum said Johnson & Johnson already filed its application and experts were considering it. The result would be known in either late this month or early next month.

 

Meanwhile, Moderna informed the FDA that it would file its application in mid-March, he said.

it would be for private hospitals, small quantities, max 50-60k per hospital chain, including their branches in provinces.

good enough for medical staff and for some of the regular patients, but short to offer to the general public.

Chance for foreigners, because thai are not likely to pay 6-10k per person. Maybe the breadwinners in the family can afford it, but not for everybody

J&J. That is what I want. One shot and no more worries. Easy to ship, store, and distribute. Apparently, effective against existing variants.

I think same-same! better wait for the real deal of J&J! 

only 2 questions left: 

how much it is going to cost for farang?

The biggest plus for zJ&J is that it is not the mRNA type..but only 66+% effective. Similar to flu shots.

Glad to hear it, hope Pfizer follows suit.

 

And that Thai FDA expedites the registration process.

But only, it's actually higher than that.

Moderna surprises me as it's as scarce as hen's teeth for at least the next 6 months

All a matter of how much you pay.
