Who the hell believes Thailand's FDA is anymore reliable and trustworthy than any other Thai organisation?

That Thailand is betting on the SInovac, with an efficiency, based on Brazil, at around 50%, is telling. Backing the wrong horse. in a life or death situation.

Please do not discuss / hint / allude to or anything else, in any way, shape or form ownership of Siam Bioscience. We all know by now (and if we don't Google is our friend).

I thought Prayut [not Thailand] was betting on Siam Bioscience producing the AZ vaccine?

He has only purchased a minimal supply of Sinovac to apese the press until the Thai lab comes on-stream.

It’s unlikely when you actually show up to be vaccinated that there will be a choice of vaccines on hand.

 

Hopefully, further down the line, there will a vaccine choice option on the booking system, as in some other countries. As you might expect, there will be a longer wait for your appointment if your choose a popular vaccine 😃

Even with 1% efficiency, Sinovac would be trusted by the Thais.

Not the common Thais.  The ones I know don't want the chinese one.
