Awesome Thailand, UK/US  never got even close to this percentage of the population in one day. Makes me proud to be Thai, but felt <deleted> after my vaccine on Friday.   Can't believe ther

Probably rushing to get rid of all the useless Sinovac .

Meaningless event as shots were cancelled previously and saved for the big day, which was supposed to be Friday. My own shot last Monday was cancelled, I and hundreds of others only found out whe

Nearly 1.3m COVID-19 inoculations given in Thailand on Mahidol Day

The Thai Ministry of Public Health has exceeded its target of administering one million doses of COVID-19 vaccines on Mahidol Day, with a combined total of 1,299,307 first, second and third jabs administered, according to Public Health Permanent Secretary Dr. Kiattibhoom Vongrachit.

 

The mass vaccinations yesterday were held in 12 health system regions across the country, with each being assigned to administer 100,000 doses, in remembrance of the late HRH Prince Mahidol Adulyadej, the father of the late King Ananda Mahidol and King Bhumibol Adulyadej, for his contributions to the development of medical education in Thailand.

 

Given the rate of vaccinations yesterday, Dr. Kiattibhoom said he is confident that, in the next three months, 20 million doses will be administered each month and Thailand will be able to achieve its target of administering 100 million inoculations this year.

Title says Saturday but Mahidol day was Friday and the MOPH figures for Saturday show only 251,814 jabs were given.  of those 14,759 were 3rd shots or boosters.

Really? The place I went had been busy all week. Thailand really has excelled in the vaccine rollout, especially after a poor start due to corruption. 

Even the Moderna is coming on time. 

Yes really.

Showboating. According to Bloomberg, the number of vaccinations on Saturday was back down to 480,000. Now if they could keep on delivering a million jabs a day for a few weeks, that would be something to shout about.

According to the MOPH info I posted earliet the numbers vaccinated was half of what you quoted.

Was the subcutaneous method used?

 

thai authorities claim that 25% of a normal dose is required, and that it gives super-duper results.

 

I saw that it was used in Phuket for AZ for the record-setting day.  https://www.thephuketnews.com/phuket-begins-new-vaccine-injection-method-81511.php

 

 

 

 

Attention folks - this here is an important post and link to read.

 

According to the world class virologists located on the island of Phuket, a subcutaneous booster using a 20% dose of AZ is very effective.

 

They may be right of course but this seems a risky approach although it does have the advantage of providing a 5x multiplier for daily vaccinations !
