No Moderna refund at private hospitals

PRIVATE hospitals will not provide a refund for customers who have reserved Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine after importer ZP Therapeutics announced that the vaccine arrival will start in November, said Dr Chalerm Hanpanich, president of Private Hospitals Association.

“Customers can, however, reschedule the vaccination to later date, or transfer the right to other person,” he added.

ZP Therapeutics said on Thursday that they expected 1.9 million doses of Covid-19 vaccine Moderna to arrive in Thailand within the fourth quarter of 2021.

Based on the latest schedule provided by Moderna, delivery is anticipated to begin in November at 100,000 to 300,000 doses per week.

The remaining 6.8 million doses are expected to be delivered in the first quarter of 2022.

“Many people have refused to receive a third jab or booster shot of other vaccines provided by the government as they prefer waiting for the Moderna vaccine,” said Chalerm.

“I would recommend that you get the booster shot now and reschedule your Moderna shot for a later date, as the association does not know if there will be a delay in delivery.“The advantage of the Moderna vaccine is that it can be provided to children aged 12 to 17.” — The Nation/ANN
