The vaccine had reportedly created a blood clot below the knee.
Panida Chantharangsikul, deputy director of the office, said the student, who hails from Phang Nga province, is being treated at Songklanagarind Hospital in Songkhla's Hat Yai district.
"The office has resolved to give the student 400,000 baht – the maximum compensation for death or permanent disability – in a bid to ease her suffering as soon as possible,” she said.
She added that another four people have filed complaints after receiving their shots and that they too will be compensated.
“A total compensation of 1.33 million baht will be handed out to all five,” she added.
