Thailand aims to vaccinate 70% of people by September

This is a very dangerous game to play.  Only doing one dose can, potentially, give rise to mutations and variants.  Just like with other medications, it's best to abide by the recommendations of the manufacturer and do the entire course.

Is It Safe to Delay a Second COVID Vaccine Dose?

Some evidence indicates that short waits are safe, but there is a chance that partial immunization could help risky new coronavirus variants to develop

I’m glad to see he’s doing the best he can to keep the people in Thailand safe. So far for the last 16 months he’s done an excellent job   Many countries would love to have such a low death rate.  Good job Sir

And here everything is closing down or already has and things are getting worse and all over the world people have been vaccinated and everything starts to open up again . Well done 😡

aiming, aiming, aiming, aiming, blah blah blah blah.......

 

Never actually DOING though.

 

They talk the talk but hardly ever walk the walk.

That is the problem with all those Thai governments past and present. Huge goals but nobody that actually nails them down on those goals. Its more trying to spin good news then to be actually able to do it. They don't even come close to the numbers they promised before and are now even going upward in their numbers.

 

How about some journalists ask about the plan and check its figures. That won't happen as the government will never stop lying. Only when they absolutely can't deny it anymore and then its always external factors to blame. Not blaming themselves for setting targets they cant reach.

 

This is just window dressing.

Thailand is aiming to administer one shot of a coronavirus vaccine to 70% of its population by September, its health minister said on Wednesday

September? Of what year? Anutin is doing another reach around in his quest to keep his job but clearly this is another load of meadow muffins from the usual sources.

September yes but of 2024

 

Worry not, it will be September 2564 - but A.D., not B.E., though.

Haha.. it is another late April's fool's joke? Surely if they cant even send 20,000 doses to Pattaya on time as promised. They could never meet this deadline

Empty words. This guy's credibility is deteriorating rapidly if he has any left at all!

Some excellent suggestions on how to go about the walk-in vaccinations. Perhaps they should start with the oldest and more vulnerable and work down from there otherwise its going to take a year?

Thailand has yet to start a mass immunisation programme and has been scrambling to secure vaccines from multiple brands

 

And that fact should cause the PM and his health minister to commit seppuku. They had the best part of a year to sort out vaccine supplies and a sensible programme to administer them, but spent the entire time dreaming up fantasies about how they can let foreign tourists back in. And the worst thing is that they're still doing it, messing around with idiocy like the sandbox scheme and reopening to all and sundry in October, instead of using their considerable powers to accelerate the vaccination programme. "Not fit for office" is too nice a thing to say about this pair, they're not fit to clean the toilets during a cholera outbreak.

Firstly, I don't think they will be able to give 70% their first shot by September, that seems to be too ambitious to me.

 

Secondly, for those getting Sinovac, the first shot in itself is pretty much worthless. They can't really delay the 2nd shot as with other vaccines.

I just did the rough math based on only doing first doses.

Do they even have prospects to even have that many doses in that timeframe, not to mention the logistics of delivering them?

that is, of course, a detail in the plan😆

It looks like India in having trouble for some people taking the Chinese vaccine no anti bodies after 2 jabs.

 

 

What's the chances that they're being sold water by some unscrupulous dealer and not actual vaccine?

So is that about over half a million shots per day? 

Well, I guess it's good to have goals.

Ingrate! In what are you going to believe... YOUR logic reasoning... or THEIR daydreaming goals? [sarcasm alert!]

I foresee hesitancy with the AZ jab. An otherwise great vaccine, it does however cause rare blood clots in about 10 per million people, and death in 1-2 of those unfortunate folk.  I just don't see Thais keeping that problem in perspective- after all Canadians and Australians haven't, for instance.  It's going to be a feeding frenzy for the unscrupulous media.  I just don't see vaccine rates being as high as predicted even if available in the millions anticipated.

Perhaps the Thai authorities can retrofit the street food push carts with the cryogenic refrigeration needed for Moderna and Pfizer to reach all the remote villages.

India and China are not the best of friends or neighbors. Call me biased against the commie Chinese, but it is not at all out of the realm of possibility the Chinese are selling the Indians liquid garbage.

Maybe it generates the all important clicks and it does, otherwise i wouldn't be writing now would i...

But those daily changing plans, crazy numbers, new laws that change every 20 minutes are getting a bit old now. Let's just ignore them from now on and see what the reality turns out to be.

Does Anutin really think that he is fooling anybody with his constant supply of verbal Diarrhea.

Even the most intellectually challenged people dont believe this Man.

He should stop all this pathetic rhetoric ASAP, and concentrate on the welfare, and well being of the Workers in his Construction Companies " Workers Camps ".

Maybe the Man has ben too busy to notice the appalling conditions that these people live in. Too busy to notice that these " Workers Camps " are hotspots for all kinds of diseases. Too busy to report the outbreaks from these Construction Sites sooner.
