Thailand will have 2 million Covid-19 vaccine doses by the end of April, beginning with 200,000 doses this month, Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha said on Tuesday.
Speaking to reporters after the cabinet meeting at Government House, Gen Prayut said that the first 200,000 doses would arrive late this month and 800,000 more doses would be delivered next month.
A further 1 million doses would arrive in April, the prime minister said. He did not elaborate on the source.
Meanwhile, Deputy Prime Minister and Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul said that local administration organisations and private organisations were unable to import any Covid-19 vaccines by themselves for the time being.
Producers were testing their vaccines in human trials and agreed to sell them to governments for emergency use only, he said.
