(3 Dec. 2022) Prof.Dr. Yong Poovorawan (Doctor Yong) Head of the Center of Excellence in Clinical Virology Department of Pediatrics Faculty of Medicine Chulalongkorn University Facebook Post Issues “COVID-19“Ask questions shouldbooster vaccinationContinue or wait for a new vaccine, which the outbreak is now in an uptrend
outbreak ofCOVID-19 according to the season of the year In this wave, the outbreak started from mid-November onwards. and will peak after the new year or January and will start to decrease from mid-February onwards Until very little left in March and will go up to a new outbreak of the year in the rainy season or from June to September according to the season of respiratory disease
The outbreak is now on the rise. according to the direction of the season Therefore, it is necessary to stimulate higher immunity. Now instead of waiting until January or February, which is on the downside
vaccines in our country Even though it’s the original species stimulation at the cellular level to reduce the severity of the disease can do very well
Vaccines by species Even with the increase will prevent infection because it isAntibodies or B cell and when the landscape rises, it decreases And when it drops to a certain level, no matter what vaccine it is, infection can occur. Therefore, there is no Thep vaccine to prevent infection.
Reducing the severity of the disease therefore depends on the number of needles injected. than the type of vaccine being injected Of course, each vaccination should be spaced apart. In general, in the spur needle, the farther the better. But the disadvantage is that if it is too far away, it will cause infection first.
Therefore, I want everyone to get at least 3 injections and if the 4th injection is to be injected, it should be 4-6 months away, and if it has been 4 injections for a very long time, for example more than 6 months, the 5th injection will not matter. Because a long time ago, the immunity will be reduced to a lot. Stimulation increases immunity at both antibody and cellular levels.
– Free COVID-19 vaccination (red cap) for children aged 6 months to 4 years across Bangkok, more than 100 places.
– Where are the “free COVID vaccinations”? All are included here. throughout Bangkok and its vicinity
– Bangkok COVID-19 vaccination center extends service hours in December 2022. Check it out.
When COVID-19 is on an upward trend, we should be quick to vaccinate instead of waiting for a new vaccine or a 2-strain vaccine that will be in the downward trend of COVID-19. We are not a vaccine producing country.
virus mutation will mutate in parts of spikes that is part of preventing infection And throughout the past year, the strains that have spread in our country are still Omicrons, but will differ in subgroups as BA.1, BA.2, BA.2.75, BA.4, BA.5. Thai population is infected. Approximately 70% (according to the study of blood collection in Chonburi), most of the infected species areOmicron Immunity arising from infection in conjunction with vaccine-derived immunity It is considered a very good hybrid immunity. and closest to the species
As for the mutation that went out as much as the news Deltacron Not a problem in Thailand The resulting outbreak is still an omicron. Therefore, the immunity of the majority of the population has not escaped much. Not at all alarming
Therefore, it is now in a seasonal uptrend. Should be vaccinated in the appropriate protection that is available in our home. And won’t wait until February or wait for a new strain of vaccine.
