ZP Therapeutics, a division of Zuellig Pharma and the official partner of Moderna in Thailand, has confirmed the first shipment of 560,000 doses of the Moderna vaccine will arrive in Thailand by Nov 5.

The company is also on track as per a confirmation provided by Moderna to deliver the remaining 1.9 million doses of the Covid-19 vaccine to Thailand by the end of the year. Another 6.8 million doses are expected to arrive in the first quarter of 2022, it said.
