Students to start getting their Pfizer jabs from Monday onwards


The drive to deliver Pfizer jabs to all students aged between 12 and 17 across the nation kicks off on Monday, the Department of Disease Control (DDC) announced earlier this week.

Pfizer is the only brand approved by the Thai Food and Drug Administration for children of this age group.

The department aims to inoculate 5.4 million students nationwide this month before schools reopen in November.

The time span between jabs is three to four weeks and the monitoring period is like that of other vaccines. All recipients are required to report their condition via the MorPhrom application.
