If you are confused about that then you might not be the smartest bulb of the lot . Having the chance to choose for your vaccine and willingly taking it is something different then being forced to take whatever [email protected]#$ they put inside you .

You could always pop off to your own place where there may be more choice if you are not happy with whats available here.

Maybe we could flip this and insist if the Governor can't provide vaccinations for all those who sign up, he goes to jail until he can.

This is one step beyond and a massive violation of human rights     First they say no choice on vaccine now they are going to jail people that refuse   It would appear this is

Where you will with utmost certainty get covid.   Genius

Sorry but you are completely incorrect.

 

Personal and religious exemptions can be legally used in most states for school children. 

 

There are NO federal vaccination requirements. For green card applicants, you can absolutely use a personal or religious waiver to get out of the requirement. 

I don't know how you have detemined that "exemptions" is the same as " no requirements".

You are 100% incorrect.

"Chapter 9 - Vaccination Requirement | USCIS" https://www.uscis.gov/policy-manual/volume-8-part-b-chapter-9

 

I will not go through the many cases proving there are many legal requirements for vaccinations, religious "exemptions" not withstanding.

One example I used, and again "exemptions" do not obviate requirements:

"Yellow Fever Vaccine | Passport Health Travel Clinics" https://www.passporthealthusa.com/vaccinations/yellow-fever/

What right do they have to impose experimental treatments?

 

Thais have literally lost their minds.
 

I hope that Mr. Thatchakorn Hatthathayakul will take criminal responsibility for what he says and does, and not avail himself of any "criminal shield".

Let's see....hmmmm What do we have in Buriram thats so terribly important that the governor is threatening incarceration..... 

 

 A worldclass GP race track, a Popular Soccer Club, or would it be the Mechnized Army Bases? 

 

Yes, it may be he does not want a repeat

of last year (maybe the year before) where small arms went missing and people began liberating themselves....and doing some killing.

 

It may behoove the Ministry of Defense and of the Interior to start innoculations on all military bases. 

 

THE 9 DASH LINE IS LESS THAN 1000 Nautical MILES AWAY..... last thing we need is for our military to be weakened and our boarders wide open for an invasion.

Insanity and utterly ridiculous when vaccines are not available for all people who may need them.  Sorry sir you get to go to jail because you did not sign up to be vaccinated and you broke the law 

But your honor I tried and no one would help me Said the 70 year old blind man.  To bad said the judge, its off to Klong Prem prison you go......

APPLY doesn't mean you'll get the jab NOW

On a non-resident visa. That means you are free to leave at any time, including after you fail to produce vaccination documents for your extension. No rights violated, no problem.

This is not just an issue of parents to their kids making them eat their vegetables for their own good, this is an issue of Human Rights abuse. Thai are not little marching commie ducks and they have no right to force anyone. Anutin and his piddly little governor have steed way way over the line. If it comes to CM me and the family will tell them to <deleted> off. We will choose what vaccine we want, not them! an d it will not be some inferior Chinese vaccine from a country where the virus was born!

Absolutely. I would like to know if I have HAD Covid. I suspect I may have last year. Anyone know where you can get reliable antibody tests done? Again, I ask the same question: What if you have had it already and recovered? 

Antibodies don't last very long.

If it comes to CM I'll do what I always do, agree to everything then prevaricate until they get tired of chasing me up.

Worst case scenario, I try and bribe the nurse holding the needle to inject the bin and not my arm.

But I doubt it would ever get that far.

That's what I've been saying and happy to do, if it ever comes to that, especially since Thailand seems to be turning more into a totalitarian police state by the day. I have a business in Myanmar but fat chance of being able to go there anytime soon and with the political violence in that country I can probably kiss that goodbye.

 

It doesn't look like the good old days will ever come back. At least not in authoritarian SE Asia. 

 

Countries like Australia and America are looking mighty fine right now (relatively speaking, at least). I'll always have the memories of my travels, both for business and pleasure, in this part of the world. It was a nice ride but the time has come to consider moving on. I just don't see a positive future for Thailand (or it's neighboring countries, such as Cambodia or Myanmar).

You seem to be going against traditional science.

I've had mumps, measles, chicken pox, COVID all once but never a second time.

So far my disease antibodies seem to have lasted me a life time.

The voluntary consent of the human subject is absolutely essential. This means that the person involved should have legal capacity to give consent; should be so situated as to be able to exercise free power of choice, without the intervention of any element of force, fraud, deceit, duress, overreaching, or other ulterior form of constraint or coercion; and should have sufficient knowledge and comprehension of the elements of the subject matter involved

as to enable him to make an understanding and enlightened decision. This latter element requires that before the acceptance of an affirmative decision by the experimental subject there should be made known to him the nature,

The news coming out of the Seychelles is quite concerning.  They used Sinovac for the younger and AZ for the older parts of their population, opened back up to tourist and are having COVID outbreaks. 

 

Compare this to countries that used Moderna and Pfizer

You still don't get it. These are not so much requirements (law) as orders. As I said, being the USA there are a myriad of ways of getting out of it. There is no universal, Communist style vaccination policy that applies in that country. A couple of states have even tried to remove the school vaccine mandate altogether. North Dakota being one I believe. 

 

And please spare me the whataboutism. Yellow fever is NOT mandated or even recommended in the USA at any level, not even if you return from a country with endemic yellow fever status. You might be asked for a yellow fever certificate for entering Ghana or Nigeria (or pay US$150 to get out of it) but it will NOT be requested upon returning home. No vaccines are required to enter the USA just as there is no current requirement to quarantine.

 

Although the USA has been moving more towards socialism and authoritarianism in recent decades, it still has fundamental freedoms in place that countries like Thailand can only dream of.

I suggest everyone do a search and see what an official in Brazil said about the Chinese Sinovac Vaccine 

 

it sums it up nicely

Exactly. Which is a problem in a country like Thailand with it's large undereducated underclasses. This is not an insult but a statement of fact. The working classes, which make up the majority of the population of the province of Buri Ram, simply don't have the capacity to make an informed decision on vaccination. Sure, some individuals do have this capability, but most don't. That said, those individuals who have heard of severe side effects after vaccination are in my opinion informed enough to decide for themselves whether they want to take the risk. They should also have this right granted by law. 

 

Problem is, in a country like Thailand where governors and the national government in general rule with fear and intimidation, rather than reward, fearful local villagers may cave to these demands and suffer serious consequences and the government can get away with it. 

 

Unfortunately, most Thais, especially the working classes, have zero awareness of their rights and even fewer are likely to sue (or even be aware of that possibility).

Not too bright posting on a public forum that you intend to do something illegal.

 

It's not illegal. This is Thailand. Everything is illegal except money talks.

At the end of the day everyone educated or uneducated has a right to decide whether or not they want the so called vaccine!

Absolutely. Just that the uneducated are put in an even more precarious position since informed consent isn't given.

They don't need to fine or punish. Offer incentives. Maybe free lottery tickets.

To insist that anyone must not refuse the Chinese vaccine is terribly unfair as it is  unsafe and not efficient. … nonsense ? … lots of online evidence of post vaccine deaths and serious illness … It’s the main vaccine being offered in Thailand .. for political and economic reasons as life isn’t as important as kudos and profit in some countries … 

If it was announced that the Chinese Vaccine was now available by any developed country there would be a national day of laughter and jokes declared .
