Most Thai population will have the vaccine free of charge.
The government is seeking to buy another 35 million Covid-19 vaccine doses, taking its total order to 63 million, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said on January 4, 2020.
The first order of 2 million doses will arrive from China in the next three months, with the government prioritising who should get them, Gen Prayut said.
It also recently signed a deal with AstraZeneca for 26 million doses and the right to produce its Covid-19 vaccine in Thailand, with supplies expected by May. That vaccine will be produced by Thailand’s Siam Bioscience with a formula and technology developed by AstraZeneca and the University of Oxford.
