An expert panel has recommended a third dose to trigger immunity for medical workers who are at risk, senior health official Sopon Iamsirithawon, told a news briefing on Sunday.

“This will be a different vaccine, either viral vector AstraZeneca or an mRNA vaccine, which Thailand will be receiving in the near term,” he said, adding that the recommendation will be considered on Monday.

The announcement comes as the Southeast Asian country reported a record high of 9,418 community infections on Sunday. On Saturday authorities reported a record of 91 new daily coronavirus fatalities.

Thailand has reported a total of 336,371 confirmed infections and 2,711 fatalities since the pandemic began last year.

The majority of Thailand’s medical and frontline workers were given Sinovac’s shots after February with the viral vector vaccine from AstraZeneca arriving in June.

Thailand is expecting a donation of 1.5 million Pfizer-BioNTech vaccines from the United States later this month and has ordered 20 million doses that will be delivered after October.

Neighbouring Indonesia, which has also heavily relied on Sinovac, said on Friday it would give the Moderna vaccine as boosters to medical workers. 

Health officials said on Sunday that more than 600 medical workers in Thailand, who received two doses of China’s Sinovac vaccine, have contracted the COVID-19 virus.

The Ministry of Public Health said 618 of the 77,348 medical workers vaccinated with Sinovac contracted the virus between April and July.

Health officials said a nurse died of a so-called sudden infection and another medical worker was in critical condition.

Senior health official Subun Iamsiraun said on Sunday that an expert panel had recommended that medical workers at risk receive the third dose.

“This will be a different vaccine, either an AstraZeneca viral vector or an mRNA vaccine, that Thailand will receive in the near term,” he said, adding that the recommendation would be considered on Monday.

Thailand recorded a record 9,418 community infections on Sunday.

The Southeast Asian province has reported a total of 336,371 cases and 2,711 deaths since the pandemic began last year.
