The Ministry of Public Health has clarified that the “Covid vaccine” must be ordered to meet the highest demand. It is a matter of health security in accordance with international principles.

Due to the complexity of the vaccine manufacturing process and take a long time When it is produced, it will apply for registration. FDA for use in emergencies which sets the expiration date 6 months from the date of manufacture If after quality inspection and evaluation, it can be injected safely and effectively. The FDA will approve the extension of the vaccine to serve the people as much as possible.

“It is fundamental to the country’s vaccine security. Vaccination reservations must be sufficient for disease prevention and response to outbreaks. In foreign countries, vaccines are reserved for the highest demand for all citizens. which must have a needle to stimulate And there are expired vaccines. For example, Japan has donated and destroyed more than 100 million doses of the coronavirus vaccine in the past several months,” said Dr. Roong Ruang.

“Procurement of vaccines is a management guideline according to international standards. and health security principles and responding to public health emergencies Currently, Thailand has 29 million doses of vaccines left in the Central Treasury and 13 million doses in the provincial Treasury. Therefore, it is the source of the cause of accelerating public relations and campaigning for all groups of people to receive the booster needles by delivering the vaccine to the SAO in order to provide the most convenient service to the people,” said Dr. Ruang Ruang.
