Thai PM, Cabinet cancel scheduled AstraZeneca vaccinations

Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha and members of his Cabinet cancelled on Friday (Mar 12) plans to receive AstraZeneca vaccine shots after the country delayed use of the vaccines over reports of blood clots in some European nations, a health official said.
In a health ministry news conference, Prasit Watanapa, dean of the Faculty of Medicine at Siriraj Hospital, confirmed that the roll-out would be delayed after a suspension of inoculations using the vaccine in Denmark, Norway and Iceland.
Denmark suspended the shots for two weeks after a 60-year-old woman, who was given an AstraZeneca shot from the same batch used in Austria, formed a blood clot and died, Danish health authorities said.
Their response was also prompted by reports "of possible serious side effects" from other European countries.
Norway and Iceland said the suspension was a precaution.
"Though the quality of AstraZeneca is good, some countries have asked for a delay," said Piyasakol Sakolsatayadorn, an adviser for Thailand's COVID-19 vaccine committee, in a press conference.
"We will delay (as well)."
Thailand was in a position to suspend the rollout for safety investigations because it had brought under control a second wave of coronavirus cases, said Kiattiphum Wongjit, permanent secretary for the Public Health Ministry.
