Prayut Dare to ask yourself “Why people do not cooperate in vaccination” is not difficult to find out. That is, “People have no trust in the government. from the news of the torture and the use of violence by government officials against people that appear in the media from time to time.” When the people did not trust the government It’s very difficult. that people are willing to follow government advice to control the spread of the disease. more vaccination It is the introduction of a new biomaterial. where access to information remains at a limited level The more people who do not trust the government as the original capital.

But it must be admitted that the vaccination Although there are not many risks. But there are some risks. but compared to the benefit of protecting the life of both one’s own and family from the epidemic Still considered vaccination necessary. and is worth injecting If the people who have been recruited for injection do not understand this point. And when a number of people get side effects. or have any adverse reactions after vaccination State-enforced misunderstandings will become anger and will cause conflict and the distrust of the people’s government in the southern border provinces has increased.”
