DDC approves fourth vaccine dose for medical workers and patients with underlying illnesses

Following the uptick in Omicron instances, mostly involving travellers entering Thailand, a subcommittee on immunisation of the Department of Disease Control had given the green light for the fourth dose of the Covid-19 vaccine for medical and public health personnel, frontline well being employees, patients with continual illnesses, and those taking immunosuppressants, in accordance with director-general Dr Opas Karnkawinpong.
Light mentioned the fourth dose might be given three months aside from the third shot. Those who obtained Sinovac as their first and second dosages and AstraZeneca as their third will most likely obtain AstraZeneca or Pfizer as their fourth shot.
With a resolution within the draft, it will be presented to the National Communicable Disease Committee when DDC meets the Public Health Minister tomorrow..
