Loei province postpones vaccination appointments due to vaccine shortage
The Loei provincial administration has decided to postpone vaccination appointments until further notice, as the province is allocated only 600 doses of COVID-19 vaccine per week.
On the Facebook page of the provincial public relations office, Governor Chaithawat Niamsiri said yesterday (Friday) that the government had made adjustments to the distribution of vaccines, giving priority to provinces or areas which are regarded as being at high risk.
Since Loei province is regarded as a low risk area, it has been allocated fewer doses of vaccine, but the government has promised more will be sent periodically, said the governor, assuring that all those who have applied for vaccination will receive vaccine jabs.
For the time being, however, appointments for vaccinations will be postponed until further notice, said the governor.
Only 92 COVID-19 cases have been reported in the province since April 1st. Anyone who has questions can call 042862123 for an explanation.
