No Pfizer vaccine in Thailand yet, insists FDA


No Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine has been imported by Thailand, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced on Wednesday in response to comments made by former PM Thaksin Shinawatra.

In comments via the Clubhouse application, Thaksin said Thailand was one of the countries that had approved the Pfizer vaccine according to the Covid-19 Vaccine Tracker website.

Thaksin’s comment had netizens asking whether the vaccine had been secretly approved and imported.

However, FDA secretary-general Dr Paisan Dankum said the vaccine has not been brought into Thailand or even approved, despite what the website shows.
