Travelers who have been vaccinated with Sinovac should not be allowed to participate in Thailand’s ‘Phuket Sandbox’ program, a senior doctor told Thai Enquirer on Tuesday.

 

The Phuket Sandbox is due to open on July 1 and will be a major milestone in the government’s quest to reopen the country by October.

 

As it stands, tourists that have been vaccinated with AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, Sinovac, and Sinopharm vaccines will be allowed to enter Phuket freely.

Didn't they vaccinate like 70% of the Island with Sinovac Placebo

And didn't Chulalongkorn University claim Sinovac was highly effective??

Hopefully they haven't destroyed their reputations.
Don't worry recommending a 4rd booster shot with something that works they will be able to save face.

anonymous senior doctor, doesn't want to get threatening phone calls.

If he is a Hiso Doctor Im sure he is well aware of what happens when you insult China...

 

Would be funny if China boycotted LOS forever for the insult about their vaccine, much like when thais tried to blame chinese tourists for that boat sinking down south

To sum up: “The studies are pretty conclusive, this vaccine does nothing to prevent the spread of the Delta variant of the virus,” the doctor told Thai Enquirer on condition of anonymity.

If it is not approved for use by the SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT.... it's not safe...

Well, then I guess it is safe..

 

From BP

SINGAPORE: Offering Sinovac Biotech Covid-19 vaccines to the public in Singapore for the first time since Friday, several private clinics reported overwhelming demand for the Chinese-made shot, despite already available rival vaccines having far higher efficacy.

But it's fine for the locals?

 

That was also my first thought. They're happy to put foreigners at risk of mixing with the Sinovac protected local community. But the local community shouldn't be exposed to the dangers of Sinovac protected foreigners?

 

Hardly surprising though. We've all seen the double standards that Thailand applies to "Thai people" compared to the pesky foreigners.

 

Double standards, double pricing, double jabs etc.

He's telling them this NOW, after most of the island's residents have been vaccinated with Sinovac?

 

Denying entry to foreigners who have been vaccinated with Sinovac is very well, but what about the locals? And what about domestic tourists, who have often also been vaccinated with Sinovac? A major Delta cluster-f is about to happen.

Thailand should have acted and removed that vaccine some time ago, all the arrows were pointing to poor or bad efficiency on Sinovac vaccine, every day there are reports about it's non performance

They Relied on Chinese Vaccines. Now They’re Battling Outbreaks.

You are correct, they should not have gone down that road.  Though from a political standpoint they likely felt they had no choice after screwing up procurement. They placed their bet in Thai citizens not being sophisticated enough to discern SinoVac was not effective.  People want vaccines, we give them vaccines - it was expedient and irresponsible.

yeah correct, reminds me of their similar approach to tourism, Thai government has hard time differentiating between quantity vs quality, they usually select the first 555

Freely? Just turn up with no restrictions imposed?
