Thailand offered to share some of the Pfizer-supplied mRNA paediatric formulation stocks. Thailand has provided medication for children. Myanmar vaccinations for Covid-19 Collaboration between the Foreign Ministry, the Thai Embassy in Myanmar, the Department of Disease Control within the Public Health Ministry, and the importer of Pfizer vaccines, Zuellig Pharma Co Ltd, made the donation possible. For the donation to be made, Cabinet approval was required, and it was channeled through the Myanmar Red Cross Society. Previously, Thailand provided its western neighbor with one million doses of AstraZeneca-manufactured vaccinations.

In response to a request from Myanmar’s minister of health, Thailand has donated 100,000 doses of Pfizer’s mRNA vaccine for children. Pfizer’s mRNA pediatric formulation is packaged in orange-capped vials and is intended for children aged five to eleven. Each 1.3-milliliter vial of vaccine is diluted with the same volume of saline. The vaccine is administered to children in 0.2-milliliter doses containing 10 micrograms of the active ingredient per milliliter. The Thai Minister of Public Health, Anutin Charnvirakul, stated on Saturday, “This is part of the ongoing coordination between the Thai Ministry of Public Health, neighboring nations, and Asean member states in managing Covid-19.” Dr. Thet Khaing Win, Myanmar’s minister of health, stated in August that the country requires Covid-19 vaccines to protect children from the Covid-19 virus. During his stay in Thailand, he participated in the opening ceremony of the Secretariat of the Asean Centre for Public Health Emergencies and Emerging Diseases (ACPHEED).
