The UK government needs to explain why Astra Zeneca in Thailand is not the same as Astra Zeneca in the UK. It's time for the Ambassador to demand an explanation and for the government to provide one.

It may  have a lot to do with Thailand's continuing use of Chinas Sinovac and Sino pharm vaccines which i can fully understand .

If they're going to impede vaccinated British citizens' ability to return to the UK, then it's incumbent upon them to explain exactly why they're doing so.   My guess is that they're most wo

So the Uk being one of the most stupid country's in the world apart from the USA. do not recognize AZ being the most used in the UK How is that then. Yet they allow hundreds of illegal rubber boat immigrants in without any vaccines and put them in hotels and pay them for the privilege . The real British citizens have to pay around 3000pounds on arrival to their own country . to conclude the punishment for going to Thailand is to pay out so the illegal's can get your money. i am British but would rather go to Afghanistan than the UK probably now more of them than their own country

"In addition, the UK still does not consider people who have been vaccinated in Thailand, even if they have received two doses of the same vaccine, as being “fully vaccinated”.

So what does UK consider as fully vaccinated??

Does anyone know?

I live here and have had 2 shots of Pfizer!.......🙃

Travel between Thailand and the UK is affected by two issues:

  1. Thailand being on the UK’s ‘red list’

  2. The UK govt’s refusal to recognise vaccines administered in Thailand

I'm sure Prayut & Phipat have a plan B.

Traveler from Thailand even with UK vaccines still need to Quarantine. Everyone must pay £2,250 and get locked up. 

It has nothing to do with Vaccine or where it was administered. This applies to everyone

Double Sinovac just doesn't cut it in the real world.

It would appear as if the UK has some severe reservations over the actual Integrity, and provenance of the Vaccines administered in Thailand.

 

Helllooo! This is not just UK policy, it's also the EU policy.

As such, this means that the vaccines listed below are accepted as valid proof of vaccination in Finland (via Schengen visa website):

  • Comirnaty Pfizer-BioNTech by BioNTech Manufacturing GmbH
  • Spikevax, formerly Moderna by Moderna Biotech Spain, SL
  • Vaxzevria, formerly AstraZeneca by AstraZeneca Ab
  • Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) by Janssen – Cilag International NV
  • BIBP / Sinopharm by Beijing Institute of Biological Products
  • COVISHIELD by Serum Institute of India
  • CoronaVac by Sinovac Life Sciences

No need for contacts but I did follow the link that I quoted where it tells you that 

 

“Where two doses of a vaccine are required for a full course, you will be able to mix two different types of vaccine, for example, Oxford/AstraZeneca and Moderna, have the two vaccinations under two different approved programmes, for example, Australia and Japan, UK and USA, EU and Canada,” the Departments note.

 

At the same time, the Departments have noted that only four vaccines will continue to be accepted as valid proof of immunity against COVID-19, which are Pfizer/BioNTech, Oxford/AstraZeneca, Moderna, and Janssen (Johnson and Johnson).

The information you attached  is for travel within Europe . It has no relevance for travel between Thailand and the UK.

You are making this complicated, here's what I said in response to the OP quote

 

 At the same time, the UK has also confirmed it will start recognising people who have received so-called ‘mix and match’ vaccines as being fully vaccinated.

 

"Although obviously not Sinovac as one of the combinations"

 

That is a factually correct statement as confirmed in the link, get over it

You will eventually get a reply similar to this. 😎

 

Thank you for your correspondence of 29 June and 19 July about British National access to COVID-19 vaccines in Thailand. There are no plans to roll out the UK’s COVID-19 vaccination programme to British nationals overseas. As with all other forms of medical treatment, British Embassies, High Commissions and Consulates do not provide vaccinations to British nationals resident in, or temporarily visiting, a foreign country. We are closely monitoring the provision of vaccines for British nationals in all foreign countries, including Thailand. The Thai government has confirmed that they are making the vaccine available, free of charge, to all resident foreign nationals. However, we understand your frustration as the vaccination programme is currently restricted by limited supplies and in some areas, has been temporarily suspended. We have also been informed of situations where some British nationals have been turned away. As a priority we are working with the Thai government to ensure equal access for British nationals and to gain clarification on when the vaccine programme will recommence fully in Thailand. The Thai national vaccination programme is working on a prioritisation basis starting with the most vulnerable: those over 60 and with underlying health conditions. British nationals will be eligible when they meet the criteria of the relevant priority group and there are vaccine available. Further information on phases of the rollout is listed on

Translation: Go suck an egg.

Wonder why the UK is being such a Richard on this. It seems Canada is ok with the AZ Vaccine from elsewhere.

 

https://www.cbc.ca/news/health/ask-covid-astrazeneca-genx-side-effect-1.6003923

 

There are two different brands of the AstraZeneca shots for COVID-19 available in Canada: The AstraZeneca COVID-19 Vaccine, manufactured in the United States and elsewhere, and COVISHIELD, manufactured by Serum Institute of India. You don't need to worry about mixing them. They are interchangeable.

 

"Same recipe, same molecule, just different factories," said Dr. Don Sheppard, a medical microbiologist and director and founder of the McGill Interdisciplinary Initiative in Infection and Immunity in Montreal in a recent CBC News interview.

 

"Health Canada has evaluated the manufacturing process by both factories and said that they're identical." 

Yeah, but how many people from this part of the world you know going to Canada in the dead of winter? 🙂

 

On a serious note, though, despite what Dr. Sheppard says, it's false to assume that vaccines manufactured in different places are equal. Nobody thinks that way about virtually anything else. Say, autos, for example. Same car, manufactured in China vs Germany... Same auto, but is it, really? No, it's not.

 

The problem is that people don't really understand anything about vaccines and the complexity of manufacture. They assume every country can produce to same standard...

By the way, EVERYBODY coming to Thailand has to quarantine for 14 days, the cheapest for a farang being 37,000 baht with SIX (6) covid tests at 3,000 baht each.   Total cost, around £805.

It has nothing to do with that as they also don't recognize 2 times AZ.

Yeah real stupid.

- helped fund Oxford University create AZ vaccine to help get the world out of this mess. (possibly injected in your arm.)

- one of the world's largest genome sequencing capabilities to discover and warn the rest of the world of new variants of concern.

- a furlough scheme to support businesses and employees through the worst of the pandemic.

- donating vaccines globally to third world countries (like Thailand).

Maybe you got a donated AZ vaccine in your arm FOC gifted from the UK.

 

Keep your ill informed and bigoted opinions to yourself.

Now, care to tell us where your from?

Stupid yes....they develped a vaccine but they at the same time dont approve it. That really makes sense.

And for good reason. Thailand - land of fake watches, handbags and......

Seriously, the AZ manufactured in Thailand is not the same as the AZ manufactured in the UK. Different components.

Then we have Happy Larry playing with the number of doses per bottle as well as injecting the stuff in 'other' places.

Lots of reasons to be concerned.

Incorrect, or can you back up your claim?

The vaccine is the same wherever it is manufactured.

Perhaps they should lower the price of the Thailand Yellow Vaccine Passport to reflect it's current value and worth. 50 baht nows seems overpriced!

You mean they pay as 50 baht to take this thing off their hands? Okay, count me in, good for a beer...

A country that has one of the worst records in the world for deaths and the handling of the pandemic and to this day still has the highest rate of new infections holds but one record.... world beating arrogance as the johnson would say.

They have stated that those vaccinated in Thailand also are not allowed to get a NHS vaccine passport as well.

Stated by who?

You are talking garbage. The NHS app is extemely difficult to access and if you have difficulty you must see a GP, but you cannot see a GP because it is not an emergency.

The system is fundamentally flawed for those in the UK far less from outside.

Ah no, it includes all vaccines administered in Thailand including Pfizer AZ Moderna etc. What do you expect when they are experimenting with an experimental vaccine
