In a meeting with Khunying Sudarat Keyuraphan, founder of the new Thai Sang Thai Party, US Senator Tammy Duckworth stated that she is pushing for more vaccine donations from the US to Thailand, but that Thailand has yet to collect 1 million Pfizer vaccines waiting for them now. The conversation took place in Washington DC on Wednesday. Duckworth was born in Thailand and has frequently advocated for her home country, including being instrumental in the donation of 2.5 million Pfizer vaccines agreed upon earlier this year. At the end of July Thailand received 1.5 million Pfizer vaccines from the US with a second delivery […]

I suspect Thailand prefers to argue about who is right and wrong, rather than just sign the papers, collect and jab them!

No urgency at all...

But hey, why hurry? They haven't even jabbed the 1.5m previous donation completely yet that they've had nearly 2 months already (arrived 30/7 and NOT yet used up!)

"Minister of Public Health Anutin Charnvirakul has disputed these claims" as quoted from this article!

Wouldn't it just be better to spend your time finding out if an issue exists and help to get it solved if it does, rather than seemingly putting more messages out that seem only to protect "face"?

If they are not here, then there is a problem. Simple. Perhaps just getting it solved may gain the Minister more respect.

But Bob, that can’t be right when they are on target to vaccinate 1,000,000 a day. They could have that little lot used up by Saturday lunchtime 😉. Oops sorry, wrong emoji 🙃🙃

But that probably is already according to their plan. Time and time again having mistakes and blames and not getting good vaccines in. Smoke screens and pointing fingers and creating delays so they don’t have to bring any of them in which follows for their obvious plan. The only respect I would think they care about is from their inner Hi So and connected circle. Everyone else is insignificant.

Correct. The Hi-So have nothing to fear about this virus now. Some of their businesses will be under threat, but very few. The big industries have more issues to worry about such as the downturn in global trade than a few scutty nighttime bars and clubs or low cost airlines. Some of the bigger ones can be snapped up cheap once all this is over. A nice little project for their kids once they return from their university educations in the U.S or U.K.

Maybe they can drink it by tomorrow, jabbing is a different story 🤭

You indirectly gave me an idea!

Why not make bars profitable and jab there?!

There's no alcohol in the vaccines!

TIT.

The problem is more like both hands are lazy so nothing gets done,

But purchased millions!

And producing AZ themselves, but I wonder how many for "in-country" as opposed to selling to other countries in-order to boost income ?

Because they were using up all the Sinovac they bought first!

Sinovac keeps up to 2 years...

The Pfizer had only 4 months until expiry date from date of delivery (30/7), so that would expire first and would make sense to use up first.

Besides, they were earmarked for special groups amongst which vulnerable people, so that should always have priority...

(Unless you were joking? 🙄)

No, @Bob20, it wouldn't "make sense to use it up first" since Pfizer is not only earmarked for the vulnerable but also for school students due to be vaccinated in the next two months who can only be given Pfizer, not AZ or Sinovac, and who haven't been part of the vaccination process yet.

Sorry if that doesn't suit your or Soidog's agendas, but maybe someone in the distribution chain has used more "sense" than you have.

Siam BioScience has no option but  "selling to other countries" - it was a condition of the technology transfer agreement with AZ.

You mean the USA can't give the stuff away?  Makes you wonder if there is a criteria not being met other than,"paperwork."  You don't think some how this has something  to do with the abundance of Sinovac?  Maybe Thailand  wants it, but needs to or wants to use it's supply up it has now, before using resources to store it.  I mean is that possible?  If all it takes is completed and the millions  can be flown over on a military airlift,  then why not wait until needed to use, to ask at the dro pool of a hat?
