Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul will tomorrow (August 18) ask the Cabinet to approve a plan to collaborate on production of Covid-19 vaccines.

Anutin said the budget for the plan was around Bt600 million, though Thailand was spending a total Bt3 billion on vaccine research and delivery.

He said that the matter must be concluded quickly since countries were now capable of starting production, and Thailand still had a chance to secure rights to produce the vaccine.

Vaccine development in Thailand is advancing and successful vaccine candidates will be approved by the Thai Food and Drug Administration in the future, he said.
