LATE JABS BLAMED ON MIX-UP
EDUCATION: The Department of Disease Control clarified yesterday why Pfizer jabs for students at 13 schools in Bangkok have been delayed, saying it was due to a miscommunication.
Director-general Opas Karnkawinpong said their late arrival was not because of a supply shortage, but a lack of coordination in terms of scheduling.
He was responding to reports that City Hall had failed to deliver the jabs on time.
The DDC chief said the vaccines would not be ready for distribution until Monday due to a communication mix-up, but offered reassurances there are now sufficient supplies of Pfizer shots for all students aged 12-17.
