Booster jabs for those who got two Sinovac doses to begin in October or sooner – Anutin


Recommended Posts

Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul said today (Wednesday) that people already inoculated with two doses of the China’s Sinovac vaccine will be given the third booster jab soon in October or even sooner.

 

He did not, however, specify the new timing, adding that it will be up to the Disease Control Department.

 

Millions of people, including many foreign migrant workers, have been given two Sinovac doses and are waiting for a third booster jab of AstraZeneca viral vector vaccine, expected to commence in October. Recently, however, the Ministry of Public Health has adjusted its mix-and-match vaccination regimen by administering Sinovac for the first jab and AstraZeneca for the second.

Amazing!  And yet there are still many up here in Isaan who have yet to be vaccinated!  Get them done first before you start looking after Bangkok again!  Oh I almost forgot, Thailand ceases to exist

Really sad case. The elderly should be vaccinated first before the younger ones.   The younger ones have stronger immune system than the elderly.   Those politicians don't seem to

Sounds like one is more worried about the image of getting a 3rd shot than being protected?   Getting a third shot this quickly tells you what public health authorities think of Sinovac

Hopefully they are finally running out of the Chinese ones by now, and we can now start using effective vaccines for everyone. 

 

As we all have known for many months that Delta ignores Sinovac, and it has limited health benefits compared to all the others, we could start to see some progress with dropping infection rates now, and work our way out of the top ten club of countries in the world with the highest Covid daily death counts.

2 Sinovac vaccines and 1 Sinovac booster= how much protection and where can I travel to other than China?

The FDA said the booster shot is not really necessary; it just improves immunity. Why don’t they continue vaccinating those people who are still waiting for vaccines? Not those who've already gotten two doses.
At least can boost the vaccination rates.

Maybe Ring them.

 

Tell them "I'm the Health Minister, any idea when those booster shots will be rolled out?".

 

He's always dodging any responsibility.

Yeah, give paople in Bkk their jabs before all the people in Thailand got their first vax.  Good work. Probably been robbing the RTP´s regular Alco Pan Am Airways.

Bangkok has the highest population density and the highest infection and death rates. It makes sense to target areas like this first. Rural areas where close contact is considerably reduced and infection rates much lower are a lower priority. Targeting the most vulnerable should be prioritised within those areas.

Yet they still order this particular vaccine by the millions why ?

Because..…the Chinese embassy has declared that it is a quality vaccine. The fact that China gives generous kickbacks on vaccine purchases has nothing to do with it.
