Hi,

My guess is that they just don't have enough vaccines. I was supposed to get a shot today (organized by my company and Social Security Fund). Got cancelled last minute on Friday. Postponed until further notice.

Sanuk!

 

But they will not admit it, just keep coming out with claims about ordering millions of doses arriving nobody knows when and the photo ops to vaccination centers to make it look like it's all going well. If the AZ was being produced here in anything like the promised numbers there wold not be a shortage.

Siam Biotech is contracted to supply 6 Million doses by the end of June since eng of May

The over 60 population in Thailand is 13 Million so 13*2/6=4.33.

To put in perspective There would be enough AZ vaccine for the over 60,s in Thailand by about mid October 2021

Same same here, every thing is going tickety-boo, with the politicians and marketing heads all singing, their usual lies, but no one I know, has had a vaccine or got an appointment before August

Are the vaccines safe?

My neighbor is a Thai policeman. He second job put him down! deathly sick!! He is no fan of the jab!!! Everyday, the Thai news is saying that people are dying from the jab.

Why are there more people dead in Ohio (USA) then is all of Korea or Nigeria? Bogus numbers?

A young couple is planning to start a family...are the vaccines safe for the unborn?

Just because someone who has had the vaccination has died does not necessary mean the vaccination caused the death. The majority are over 60 or have pre-existing conditions anyway, to put it bluntly they were closer to dying than your average Joe 

In the USA, the death rate amongst those receiving Vaccine, not caused by, just receiving is 0.0018% or 1.8 per 100, 000. The death rate on US highways is 10 per 100,000. The death rate from alcoholic poisoning is 12 per 100,000.

I don’t hear people clamoring for motor vehicles or alcohol to be banned but both far more statistically to kill you.

Take off your Tin Foil hat

Some people do suffer side effects such as headache, fever, aches, and tiredness. These effects last only 2 or 3 days.

 

I got the J&J jab. I was slightly tired for a couple of days. My brother was the same (in terms of side effects) with the Moderna jab. My sister was pretty much knocked out for a couple of days (Moderna jab).

In China's Latest Outbreak, Doctors Say the Infected Get Sicker, Faster

As the delta variant of the coronavirus spreads in southeastern China, doctors say they are finding that the symptoms are different and more dangerous than those they saw when the initial version of the virus started spreading in late 2019 in the central city of Wuhan.

Patients are becoming sicker, and their conditions are worsening much more quickly, doctors told state-run television Thursday and Friday. Four-fifths of symptomatic cases developed fevers, they said, although it was not clear how that compared with earlier cases. The virus concentrations that are detected in their bodies climb to levels higher than previously seen and then decline only slowly, the doctors said.

Up to 12% of patients become severely or critically ill within three to four days of the onset of symptoms, said Guan Xiangdong, director of critical care medicine at Sun Yat-sen University in the city of Guangzhou, where the outbreak has been centered. In the past, the proportion had been 2% or 3%, although occasionally up to 10%, he said...

The Thalidomide Tragedy: Lessons for Drug Safety and Regulation

In a post-war era when sleeplessness was prevalent, thalidomide was marketed to a world hooked on tranquilizers and sleeping pills. At the time, one out of seven Americans took them regularly. The demand for sedatives was even higher in some European markets, and the presumed safety of thalidomide, the only non-barbiturate sedative known at the time, gave the drug massive appeal. Sadly, tragedy followed its release, catalyzing the beginnings of the rigorous drug approval and monitoring systems in place at the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) today.

Thalidomide first entered the German market in 1957 as an over-the-counter remedy, based on the maker’s safety claims. They advertised their product as “completely safe” for everyone, including mother and child, “even during pregnancy,” as its developers “could not find a dose high enough to kill a rat.” By 1960, thalidomide was marketed in 46 countries, with sales nearly matching those of aspirin.

Around this time, Australian obstetrician Dr. William McBride discovered that the drug also alleviated morning sickness. He started recommending this off-label use of the drug to his pregnant patients, setting a worldwide trend. Prescribing drugs for off-label purposes, or purposes other than those for which the drug was approved, is still a common practice in many countries today, including the U.S. In many cases, these off-label prescriptions are very effective, such as prescribing depression medication to treat chronic pain.

However, this practice can also lead to a more prevalent occurrence of unanticipated, and often serious, adverse drug reactions. In 1961, McBride began to associate this so-called harmless compound with severe birth defects in the babies he delivered. The drug interfered with the babies' normal development, causing many of them to be born with phocomelia, resulting in shortened, absent, or flipper-like limbs. A German newspaper soon reported 161 babies were adversely affected by thalidomide, leading the makers of the drug—who had ignored reports of the birth defects associated with the it—to finally stop distribution within Germany. Other countries followed suit and, by March of 1962, the drug was banned in most countries where it was previously sold.

In July of 1962, president John F. Kennedy and the American press began praising their heroine, FDA inspector Frances Kelsey, who prevented the drug’s approval within the United States despite pressure from the pharmaceutical company and FDA supervisors. Kelsey felt the application for thalidomide contained incomplete and insufficient data on its safety and effectiveness. Among her concerns was the lack of data indicating whether the drug could cross the placenta, which provides nourishment to a developing fetus....
