Dr Yong praises Thailand's vaccine strategy - Pfizer booster just the ticket

Strategy?  What strategy? They were way behind last year to get enough vaccines for the first shots and now they also seem to have no clear plan to roll out boosters.

It has been four months since my second Pfizer vaccine here in Chiang Mai.  When and where can I get a Pfizer booster.  I asked at Airport Plaza but was told I had to have at least six months between my second vaccine and the booster, yet several people I know and several posters here say they have been able to obtain a Pfizer booster after only four months...where and how can I do this in Chiang Mai?

Apt Plaza is the place to go. Strange they told you that. We got boosters 3 months after, Pfeizer indeed. Try again?

So message is “vaccines are good”, yeah we know . “‘stating the bleedin’ obvious” but to who exactly? Tell us something we don’t know already.

That was my first thought too. But on a similar forum two days ago one reply reminded us that this guy is Thai, an authority speaking to Thai people, and recommending positive action.

His message is not directed at us. Most Thai people do not read international news nor understand foreign languages.

 

I for one am thankful for his work on behalf of his country. The truth is valuable regardless of its origin and seldom does damage by being repeated.

I like Yong. I think that his impressive mane of white hair lends a lot of authority and gravitas to what he says.

Also, he looks yonger than he is.

ok, let's accept this point of view. So, he is preaching to Thais subscribed to his FB page.

But then why do we, on an english speaking forum where everybody reads international news, have to be subjected to his more or less daily posts as well?

I was told from a friend who went to Royal Garden Mall in Pattaya for a Pfizer booster shot. He was turned away and told the people with 2 doses of Pfizer could not receive a Pfizer booster shot. Is this true or was my friend pulling my leg?

Because the forum managers make editorial content decisions, not the readers. Note that the moderators also have the power to delete any posts or replies they desire.

 

You of course have the option of scrolling past any or all articles in any given edition. I exercise this right frequently, especially the perennial posts about golfing and other advertising gambits.

 

Gove it a try. You'll be glad you did.

As an alternative, you can start your own forum. Then you too will have absolute power of censure.

Well there appear to be guys in this country and around the world who question the value and use of the vaccination programs, so it still hasn't gotten through to some of them, and I particularly liked this comment from a judge in New Zealand, when he was confronted with a guy who couldn't pay his fine because he was out of work – – why?, Because he said he couldn't find work as he was unvaccinated, and this was the judge's retort which I thought was marvellous: – 

 

"Judge Ruth asked what reparations Fensom was able to pay and defence counsel Michaela Brus said he was only able to pay $30 a week but was already paying some other fines.
His defence counsel said he was also now unemployed because of the vaccine mandate.
"You won't get vaccinated?" Judge Ruth asked Fensom.
"I have got no sympathy for him," said the judge, saying he was putting everyone at risk. These nutcase views will not be accepted in this court. You should be ashamed of yourself," said Judge Ruth.

"Pfizer booster just the ticket"

 

Its pretty much the only ticket.

 

As usual all the eggs in one basket approach.

Agree. Interested only in non-political medical statements from western specialist professors or institutes. this is repetition of almost childish quality , presumed politically driven and for Thais not farang so not needed here.

Wrong place to ask. Refer MOPH Vaccine Combo Matrix.

Up to you. I am more eclectic in my choices of news sources preferring to get a wider perspective in pursuit of a wider truth. It's always about judgment.

 I’m a big picture / top down / rational guy. Once I’ve found gold standard subject western sources, I won’t waste time checking & building confidence elsewhere. Sources from tyrannical  / unfree countries can be dismissed as unreliable or lies.
