Before all the US expats say their country/embassy is not looking after them.  Consider this.   Embassies are not in foreign countries for the sole benefit of their citizens.  They may provi

No. That is not the truth at all.  The two State Department mission requirements are not mutually exclusive.  It's BOTH.  Represent the US national interests AND provide/promote safety for its' citize

Another 2.5 million vaccines donated.... At this rate Thailand won't have to purchase there own, and the money can go into the trough for all to share....

A far as I know, in a representative democracy there is little an embassy does that is not for the benefit of citizens. Ultimately, citizens decide what an embassy's responsibilities are and should be. It is the citizens' right and responsibility to suggest their embassies should provide life saving relief during a great pandemic.

 

Sure but maybe there is a distinction between 'life saving relief' and 'imminent life saving relief'.

Democratic principles can be hard to for those on the outside trying to sell state control.

 Great with all these free doses do you think they would start giving some to the foreigners who live here TIT

It would be a shame if we had to mix them with Sinovac, the vaccine that never runs out.

Meh.

 

Yes, the Biden administration announced a global mega-vaccine donation plan - COVAX + non-COVAX

 

Yes, Thailand was to be part of that (non-COVAX portion)

 

Yes, 1.5 mm doses were the first tranche, due today.

 

Yes, the news of additional doses was mentioned last week.

 

This announcement merely reinforces the commitment, volume, and allows Bangkok-born Sen. Duckworth to present some good news as part of an event.

 

I did not know about this new donation until seeing this article.

 

I guess your point is, sheesh, I don't know.

 

 

So is this 2.5 million doses includes the previous 1.5 million doses, or is separate?

How can it possibly run out, when it has no legs?😂
