AstraZeneca’s plan to produce its Covid-19 vaccine in Thailand has made significant progress and the first batch of vaccines will be ready for delivery to the government by June.
Country President James Teague of AstraZeneca (Thailand) Ltd said the company, together with Siam Bioscience, has been working tirelessly to ensure that the facility is on track to safely deliver supply to support the national vaccination campaign. Numerous safety tests and quality control measures are carried out at each step and the company is working as quickly as possible to supply the vaccine to the Thai government to overcome the ongoing pandemic.
He said the collaboration with the Thai government and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has facilitated the swift but careful progress with the manufacturing plant over the past few months.
Mr Teague added that Thailand will play a central role to support its neighbors in Southeast Asia to combat Covid-19. (NNT)
