Thailand to donate 3.5 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine to six countries

The Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) approved a proposal to donate up to 3.55 million doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine to Myanmar, Laos, Vietnam, Nepal, Kenya and Ethiopia.

In response to Thailand’s signal to the World Health Organization (WHO) of its willingness to donate vaccines to other nations through the COVAX initiative, the WHO has allowed the country to proceed with donating directly to the six countries mentioned, said the CCSA spokesperson.

Following Friday’s approval by CCSA, about 3.5 million doses of the vaccine will be delivered to those countries, Dr. Taweesilp Visanuyothin said.

COVAX is a global initiative aimed at equitable access to COVID-19 vaccines led by the GAVI vaccine alliance, the Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI) and WHO, along with key delivery partner UNICEF.
