BANGKOK (Reuters) – Thai Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha became the first person to be vaccinated with the AstraZeneca (NASDAQ 🙂 COVID-19 vaccine in the Southeast Asian country on Tuesday after the rollout was temporarily suspended due to safety concerns.
Prayuth and other cabinet members had originally received their vaccination shots Friday before Thailand stopped using the AstraZeneca vaccine after reports that it could lead to blood clots, prompting a number of European countries to pause.
The Thai health minister said Monday the rollout would resume after many countries said there were no blood clot problems with the vaccine.
