The Cabinet has approved a budget of 946.31 million baht for the Thai Red Cross Society to purchase 1 million doses of Moderna vaccine to distribute free of charge.

Zuellig Pharma, the supplier and distributor of Moderna in Thailand, has offered the mRNA vaccine at a price of 940 baht per dose plus transportation costs of 26.75 baht, totalling 966.75 baht per dose.

A downpayment of 30 per cent of the total purchase value will be made this month. Zuellig Pharma is expected to deliver the first batch of Moderna vaccine in early 2022.
