"Thailand has been receiving AstraZeneca vaccines lately through donations by Japan "

Because Japan does not want them, they only use Moderna and Pfizer.... 

You have to wonder why that isn't now standard, at least as an option - which would see 99.99% take up here.

They still produce, take a proportion for here and sell the rest...

if vaccines are so good, why many people have to take, more and more vaccines ?

at latest, by now, everyone can understand who lost any trust in,
health experts from institutions of governments.

and trust any other experts ( doctors etc. ), in a corrupt and fear based world,
not makes sense either.

corruption is nothing new, but some people
forget quick or can not think clearly when are scared.

Quote Article: There was no mention in the report by MCOT of locally produced AstraZeneca vaccines produced by Siam Bioscience, a company wholly owned by a subsidiary of Crown Property Bureau. The local production was supposed to deliver 10 million vaccines a month for use in Thailand, while exporting more to the Southeast Asia region, a plan that has brought controversy and debate.

Well they don't have to deliver them domestically in great numbers because the name of the game is they are still making boat loads of money selling them abroad and they are staying within the confines of the contract in order to have the rights to produce. But purchasing them for 300 baht a jab from the outside seems really high. But if that is the price then what is the mark up charged back to the Government? Nothing is just straight across the board here as there has to be some angle to kickbacks. Just like with Pfizer, they have eventual plans to up the price as they have talked about as high as USD $175.

And what will they be using for the fourth booster shot vaccine, as they have started now? Back to Sinovac?

Pfizer and Moderna, on their own accord, supplied the initial orders around cost price and said they would raise prices at a later stage.

Prices vary per supply location and country, but as an example, in the EU Pfizer charged €15.50 until now and for orders for 2022 they charge €19.50 (I think your decimal point is one position off...).

Many of articles over the year talking about they want and are looking to raise prices but are currently caught in pandemic pricing, and I did say at a later stage meaning not now because they could never get away with it. We will see a gradual change for sure as these monsters are not in it to save the world, well yes an no, but big I think it is safe to say Big Pharma has never been in it to just to break even.

Below is just one example below from Oxfam international news. doesn't matter who writes the article because they are all regurgitating the same material in a sense.

 

https://www.oxfam.org › press-releases › vaccine-mono...Jul 29, 2564 BE — The CEO of Pfizer has suggested potential future prices of as much as $175 per dose ―148 times more than the potential cost of production.

Don't get worked up. That's never going to happen. The tech isn't propriatory and there's lots of competition.

Not worked up, just pointing out what they were talking about for the future. You know me and my family feelings. As far as I care they could even charge 2000 - 3000 baht here per jab to level the field and we would gladly pay it as long as we are able to get jab of choice. Daughter is already signed up for Moderna at a price and I am looking to Q1 for Moderna for the wife and son now if something just jump up and out. I just looked at the Wall numbers in que for areas around CM province and they are huge. Unless those numbers are wrong and not updated then they are in the millions.

Thailand  population is approximately 70.000.000 and Covid-19 deaths are risen to 16.727 so if we do the division the ratio is equal 1death : 4.187 people. The worrying thing is the official data from U.S.A : Source:

Cumulative Number of Child COVID-19 Cases of 5,518,815 total child COVID-19 cases reported
https://www.aap.org/en/pages/2019-novel-coronavirus-covid-19-infections/children-and-covid-19-state-level-data-report/ and this official link Covid-19 among children Source:
