Amid all the confusion about Thailand’s COVID-19 vaccination plans, two things are very clear: People will not start getting inoculated from Valentine’s Day no matter what top government figures said earlier, and the first vaccine to arrive will be China’s CoronaVac.

 

Thailand was hit by COVID-19 more than a year ago, and in the eyes of many observers, the government has been too slow in getting the population inoculated. That judgement seems reasonable given that 138 million doses have already been administered across 73 countries, including Thailand’s neighbours Cambodia and Indonesia.

 

Mounting pressure

 

Last year, the government signed a purchase order for 26 million doses with AstraZeneca in a deal that also includes knowledge transfer for local pharmaceutical firm Siam Bioscience to produce the vaccine in Thailand.

Irritating to keep seeing this word, "jab," used for an inoculation or a shot. A "jab" is something Larry Holmes would work you over with before laying you out with a right hook.

Have to take your hat off to the Chinese - infect Thailand and then charge them for a cure

Using last generation technology.  

What's the word on private acquisitions of the other vaccinations?  I thought government gave approval for a free for all.   I'm hoping my fiance's HISO boss gets his workers a good vaccine.
