Good to hear they got a full dose for a booster and not the Phuket 20%. Sad to hear it sounds like they used all their allocation of vaccines in the one day hit.

Reminds me of a song

Seems to happen in more places. In CM the jab locations are closed since Friday too. The allocation was only 29.000 and that's not even scratching the surface. I really don't believe the huge numbers of available vaccines anymore. Actually I didn't believe them for a while already...

No real surprise given the reaction to the Phuket trial on Thai social media.

Locally many who were given 2 x Sinovac are simply resigned to "starting again" with AZ - particularly as most of the nurses and hospital staff had 2 x Sinovac.

Good they got a proper vaccination. No way am I accepting a 20% subdermal injection on the advice of a nobody Phuket hospital injecting 122 people in a study. As if it were not hard enough already to get a Thai administered vaccine recognised.

If you're unlucky to get 20% you can always ask for 4 free refills 🤭

So that’s why 4 doses, have now appeared on vaccination lists? Redoing the Sinovac experience?
