On Thursday Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul visited the unit to oversee arrangements.

The unit will accept 100 registrants per day but will provide vaccination to 50 people per day to avoid crowding.

A Nonthaburi resident, Julailuck Rewong, aged 69 years, became the first recipient of the locally made vaccine. She reportedly said that she was glad to finally get vaccinated after having studied the benefits and impact of the vaccine thoroughly.

“I have confidence in our manufacturing standards that guarantees the safety of the vaccine as well as its efficacy in creating immunity against Covid-19,” she added.

WHO Representative to Thailand, Dr Daniel Kertesz, also received the locally made AstraZeneca vaccine on Friday, which was administered by Public Health Permanent Secretary Dr Kiattiphum Wongrajit. He is the first foreigner in Thailand to receive the locally made vaccine.

Kertesz confirmed that the locally made vaccine was as effective as the ones imported, while urging Thai people to get vaccinated as early as possible to reduce the severity of symptoms and chance of death in case of infection.
