AZ vaccination for Thai citizen

AZ vaccination for Thai citizen

mdsmqlk28

Sinovac + AZ is the standard vaccination scheme in Thailand now. AZ x2 should not be available.

Enlisting is the fastest way to get PZ /s

No one is offering double AZ. >There is only Moderna available for "purchase" which is estimated to arrive in Q2 2022.. Some of the Moderna has already arrived. All of it was due to be shipped by the end of the first quarter 2022. If your friend doesn't want Sinopharm - which by all accounts isn't a bad vaccine versus Sinovac, paying for Moderna is currently the only option.

>No one is offering double AZ. Bangkok Hospital Pattaya just recently had AZ+AZ walkins for Thai. And I'm sure they will have another round.

It was announced by Anutin on Sep 20th that sometime in October all first doses will be Sinovac. Does it mean it has already started? Probably not. Does it mean that for 100% sure no Thai person will get AZ as a first dose? Probably not. I mean, this is Thailand after all.

I'll take your word for it but it may be a one-off thing - officially all Thais are meant to be getting the SV/AZ combo unless they pay for an alternative.

Samitivej Hospital also offered AZ+AZ a couple of weeks ago.

Bangkok Hospital Pattaya just posted a walk-in for 800 Thai and 200 foreigners on 8 Oct for AZ+AZ. http://imgur.com/a/Yna5su7

Thanks for the heads up but he's only 25 (it seems to be 40+) and registration is full already.. now he's trying to find Sinovac+AZ but even that is impossible to find.

Sinovac just gets a lot of hate for being Chinese, as far as I can make out. Seems to work just fine, I'd take it in a heartbeat if I wasn't already vaccinated: https://www.reuters.com/world/asia-pacific/sinovacs-covid-shot-highly-effective-against-serious-illness-malaysia-study-2021-09-24/ The perfect is the enemy of the good...

> Sinovac just gets a lot of hate for being Chinese, as far as I can make out The main part [is the efficacy](https://imgur.com/a/t7TTCFL) - it's not high and why the government is now giving booster shots to those who had two shots of Sinovac. The numbers for Sinopharm are better. That said, part of it is hate of the Chinese as well. People don't trust products out of China. I can't even convince my Mrs to take Sinopharm.


ThongLo

That's efficacy (i.e. trial data, likely against the original strain or pre-delta variants) from months ago. My link was real-world effictiveness against Delta from last week.


harrybarracuda

I think it gets a lot of hate because it isn't very good and they lie about it. They are, however, developing their own mRNA vaccines, who knows, perhaps with the help of the intellectual property that "someone" stole from Moderna. https://www.bbc.com/news/world-asia-china-56713663


ThongLo

> they lie about it. Who's "they"? Reuters? The Malaysian government? Institute for Clinical Research?


harrybarracuda

They is China.


ThongLo

I don't think you read the article.


harrybarracuda

But I did: "Gao Fu, head of the Chinese Centres for Disease Control and Prevention, on Saturday said at a conference the current vaccines "don't have very high rates of protection"." To add some context, the next day he was slapped down and hauled before the beak to give an "I didn't mean it" interview in one of the government state mouthpieces. [https://www.globaltimes.cn/page/202104/1220774.shtml](https://www.globaltimes.cn/page/202104/1220774.shtml)


ThongLo

Yes, I know. We covered it here when it was news, 6 months ago. The data in the story I linked to is from Malaysia last month.


harrybarracuda

Kinda speaks for itself. "The study, conducted by the Malaysian government, found that **0.011% of about 7.2 million recipients of the Sinovac shot required treatment in intensive care units (ICU**) for COVID-19 infections, health officials told reporters on Thursday. By contrast, **0.002% of about 6.5 million recipients of the Pfizer (PFE.N)/BioNTech (22UAy.DE) vaccine needed ICU treatment** for COVID-19 infections"


ThongLo

Correct - so Sinovac kept 99.989% of its 7.2 million recipients out of ICUs, compared to 99.998% of the Pfizer recipients.

FYI - I saw posts in an FB group of people offering to transfer/sell their allocations at cost...ie. they paid for these months ago, and in the meanwhile got vaccinated....so no longer need it. Except Samitvej, many hospitals seem to be allowing transfers - (World Medical, Princ Suvarnabhumi etc). By the way, this link is now open again but for foreigners - [https://www.medparkhospital.com/en/page/covid19-vaccine-expatriates](https://www.medparkhospital.com/en/page/covid19-vaccine-expatriates)


buttkoins

Any idea in what group or do you have a link? Would help a lot. Thanks.


TPK001

Sure. Rushing out for an appointment, i will reply back in the next hour. May have a lead for your friend.


TPK001

OP - sending you the FB link of a person (via DM), who has a vaccine they dont need (They paid 3300 baht / person - 2 doses). The person on FB confirmed with the hospital that it can be transferred to anyone - but your friend can also call the hospital independently and confirm. Some hospitals have a form. If this lead does not pan out, please come back and let me know.


buttkoins

Yes please, let's try this :) Thanks!

I think all vaccine brands are all the same. 0) Not last forever. Antibody may be last few months, even 0 for someone. 1) No one offer to check antibody after got vaccined. 2) Has side effect to person who never done body checkup and still want getting vaccination. 3) Vaccine not garantee to save life. 4) Someone have kids who can not get vaccine are in risk since people got vaccined and return to careless lifestyle. My opinion, Since people want vaccine, Many brands people can shot without think twice. If people want vaccine for go aboard to destination that required "brands". It is additional.


Phenomabomb_

Why did you start your list with 0? Your list is already pretty retarded, but this part confuses me
