On July 23, 2022, Prof. Dr. Yong Phuworawan or “Mor Yong” Head of the center specializing in clinical virology Department of Pediatrics Faculty of Medicine Chulalongkorn University Post a message statingcovid vaccination that “Covid-19” Complete vaccination requires 3 doses.
“Mor Yong” Prof. Dr. Yong Phuworawan revealed that the principle of vaccination against disease It will consist of preliminary vaccination. and leave the interval for another 1 needle to stimulate the immune to a very high level Therefore, it is called receiving a complete vaccine, such as hepatitis B. The vaccine must be given preliminary 2 injections and followed by 1 booster injection to be called complete.
That is to say, give the preliminary 1 month apart, and if another 5 months, give the 3rd dose, it will be a complete vaccination for protection.
Likewise, the covid-19 vaccination is the same. Complete means having to give 3 doses, 2 initially, followed by 1 booster 4 to 6 months later, to be called full vaccination.
For those who get more than 3 times, it is considered an additional stimulus. which should be spaced about 4-6 months from the last dose as well to raise the level of immunity
M.Yong also stated that from information on vaccination in Thailand There is still a misconception that complete is giving 2 times, which has already received 53 million doses, or about a little more than 80 percent, and completing 3 times is now only 26 million doses, or about 40 percent. only Shows that most of the Thai population is not yet fully vaccinated, about 60%
What needs to be re-understood is complete vaccination. Full vaccination is 3 doses, not 2 doses, and the portion greater than 3 doses is a booster dose where the immunity is still high.
It’s time for government agencies to take responsibility. must change the definition of complete vaccination to 3 times and agree that complete vaccination In our country, we are still at a low level, about 40 percent only. need service recipient and service providers It is necessary to accelerate the vaccination to be as high as possible. If it reaches 90 percent or more, the better.
