Thailand on track to administer 100 million vaccine doses by year-end


Precisely 86.4 million Covid-19 vaccine doses have been administered nationwide while another 13.6 million are to be given by the year-end, as the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration counts down 45 days from Wednesday for Thailand to achieve its goal of administering 100 million doses.

The first day of vaccinations kicked off on June 7.

According to Public Health Ministry vaccination data on Tuesday, 477,440 doses were administered in 24 hours, resulting in a total of 86,415,911 cumulative doses.

The country needs to administer 13,584,089 doses in order to reach its 100-million goal in 45 days. This would require a vaccination rate of 301,868 doses per day.

Officials are confident they will achieve the goal by December 31.
