Thai Red Cross asks provinces to book free Moderna doses


The Thai Red Cross Society has contacted governors of every province, seeking data on the number of at-risk residents eligible for free Moderna vaccine doses.

The Red Cross announced on Thursday that it was importing 1 million doses of the US-made mRNA vaccine and would offer them free of charge.

“Governors of each province in Thailand have been asked to notify their Provincial Administrative Organisation to reserve vaccines for high-risk groups free of charge,” the Red Cross letter read.

The reservations must be made by July 21, it added.

 

Tej Bunnag, secretary-general of the Thai Red Cross Society, told a House committee on Thursday that his agency had concluded talks to import 1 million Moderna doses.
