Health minister denies Thailand rejected 1m dose Pfizer vaccine donation offered by US


Recommended Posts

I can't help thinking that about now, somewhere in the US or Thailand, there's a low-level civil servant looking at an envelope on his desk and thinking "Oh ****, I should probably have opened that".  🥴

All smoke and mirrors, this is whats been reported so far:   The US wants to send us 1 million Pfizer doses but can’t because Thai government hasn’t done paperwork “[We have] a million

Is this just Thailand doing what China wants and says?   Or is that too sophisticated a theory and the Thai Ministers just can't get their sh*t together and know what the left hand is doing.

Wouldn't be the first here and certainly won't be the last.

A typical deflecting-the-blame game:

 

US says: "You didn't do X"

Thai says: "We did Y" (and adds the "misunderstanding" tag, which must resonate as a fully acceptable excuse in the Thai mindset).

 

The cock-up should be a sacking offence for the minister (and his head of department) - but it'll just get another roll of the eyes and shake of the head - there are no consequences here ... (but they better keep working on getting an amnesty ... just in case).

 

Haha ... as the coup was plotted years ago in dark, smoke-filled back-rooms, it never occured to them that if they pulled if off they'd have to competently run the country? ... no one ever mentioned how hard that would be!

Thinking past the next meal is far too difficult, the reason is an unknown concept, unless of course there is money involved-but that's a completely matter.

Yeah, but when the Chinese offered up sinovac to him, it was just some random rich Chinese guy looking to make some connections.  And the vaccine wasn’t even donated!  But when the Americans want to donate better vaccines, it has to go through the “proper” channels.  

The Americans have motives to make donations to Thailand, in the form of military operations. Of course, it has to go through channels. Both countries are totally corrupt, but the US is not as transparent.

We all know what is going on via Chinese kickbacks and on and on, but it doesn't matter because he is not accountable and those foreigners living in Thailand can do nothing about it and the Thais themselves can do nothing about it, it's the definition of an Asian despotism and everyone just needs to suck it up.

Can't believe that this administration would turn down anything that was offered freely 🤔🤔🤔

We all know that the US donated over a million Pfizer vaccines already which were supposed to go to front line workers as a booster due to the vaccine that it heavily invested in Sinovac not standing up to the Delta, however with clear scientific evidence showing it was only 13.8% effective to the Delta strain, Anutin was still ordering millions of doses, was that a misunderstanding.

 

Next month Thailand is going to be vaccinating kids with Pfizer ages 12-17, so 3 of our kids will get it, what about my wife who doesn't want Sinovac and without Sinovac as the 1st dose she can't get AZ. The kids are less susceptible to Covid so it doesn't make sense that they want to give it to them 1st, in my opinion, it should go to the rest of the population first and the kids last, this is what they had done around the world, but no, in Thailand we will give the good stuff to the kids and the s*it to the adults.

 

I really pray the day comes that when this government is ousted, that someone with balls goes after them, like they did with the Shinawatras and others, however not allowed to flee, because what Mr A and Mr P have done, is nothing short of murder in my opinion and should be held accountable.

 

No doubt if the day ever arrives, they will cry the same story as Joe Ferrari, I did it to protect the people, it was all a misunderstanding, yes that word again.

Bravo-   Need Thais to think and say the same-

Like others have said, the US senator has no reason to lie (unless she is being paid by Thaksin).

 

Anutin and the Thais on the other hand are known for messing things up and then having to cover for it.

 

If i were a betting man i bet on the Thais lying and covering up. Based on the fact that I think an US senator has far less reasons to lie then Anutin because if this is the case its another egg on the face.

so headline says "did not reject". Rejecting is an activity, a "doing something", so technically correct. More of a passive aggressive "doing nothing" approach what we have here.

Reminds me of Thailand declaring war on US in WWII, but ambassador in DC didn't deliver the declaration, giving them an out.

IT is beggars belief what goes on in LOS with their elected ( supposed to be ) leaders, 1 million Pfizer doses waiting to be sent but cannot because paperwork not completed by Thailand! If this is true it is treasonous given the current situation, why is this tolerated by the General and people of Thailand!

A little from Column A and a little from Column B

The people missing out here are those in Thailand who could have been double jabbed with the vaccine already

There are also many falang waiting for their first shot out in the sticks, thankfully i got my first shot of Pfizer on Monday and have an appointment for second shot in 3 weeks, despite being discriminated against and treated by A-Nut-In government as a second class human.

The U.S senator forgot to make two photocopies of each page and then sign each page in blue ink.  
 

But seriously, she could have avoided all this misunderstanding if she had just figured out a way to funnel some money to certain people.  It may be free vaccines for regular people, but someone high up gotta get paid.  Otherwise what’s the point of public service?
