Provincial authorities, however, do not have the right to dip into the national vaccine budget without the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration’s approval, he said.
Separately, Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul met the press on Monday morning to explain why funds had not been allocated for the Covid-19 crisis in the 2022 national budget.
Anutin said his ministry had sought funds to handle the crisis, but the Budget Bureau instructed it to get the funds from the government’s borrowed money or from the central budget.
