Residents who have been vaccinated should get a booster every four months, according to the Ministry of Public Health.
Opas Kankawinpong, the Director-General of the Disease Control Department, recommended today that Thai individuals acquire at least three Covid-19 immunizations and then maintain topping up.
According to Opas, everyone has antibodies, but they diminish every 3 to 4 months, regardless of the vaccine they have received, thus people should have a vaccine booster every 4 months to keep their antibodies up.
High-risk individuals, such as the elderly, those with a congenital illness, and those who visit high-risk locations, are encouraged to obtain the extra injections.
For children aged 5 to 11, a vaccination booster is not recommended.
In the long run, the ministry stated that the immunization frequency might be reduced to one injection per year, similar to the influenza vaccine.
In Thailand, getting a vaccine isn’t required, but anyone who wants to receive a booster can do so for free at any of the country’s vaccination centers.
