WHO cites Thailand’s mix-and-match Covid-19 vaccine strategy in latest paper
Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha applauded Thai researchers after their studies on Covid-19 vaccine combinations were accepted internationally, deputy government spokesperson Traisulee Traisoranakul said on Saturday.
This came after the Public Health Ministry announced that many studies conducted in Thailand have been cited in the World Health Organisation’s "Interim recommendations for heterologous Covid-19 vaccine schedules" report.
Traisulee said of the 48 studies cited in the report, five are from Thailand conducted by researchers under the auspices of the Public Health Ministry and other related agencies.
She added that Thailand is promoting a mix-and-match vaccine strategy to other countries based on its efficiency in containing the spread of Covid-19.
"This is considered important progress for Thailand," she added.
