Meanwhile, Dr. Opas Karnkawinpong of the Disease Control Department, Natthapon Nakpanich from the Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA), and Bangkok governor Aswin Kwanmuang held a press conference this morning, regarding the vaccine postponement in many hospitals in Bangkok due to the allocation delay.
The governor stated the reason for postponing the vaccination appointments for people registered with the Thai Ruam Jai application from June 15th onwards was that the producer was experiencing some technical issues. A rescheduled date of vaccination will be announced later for the applicants.
The officials also confirmed that the country has procured more Covid-19 doses, including Sinovac and AstraZeneca. They also reassured that vaccines will be delivered according to the plan and the vaccination will continue on the following day after the scheduled amount of vaccines has arrived in the capital.
