Australian support to Thailand’s vaccine roll-out

Australia is pleased to provide $2.8 million to support Thailand’s rollout of COVID-19 vaccines, as part of Australia’s regional Vaccine Access and Health Security Initiative.
This funding will go towards the provision of technical assistance from the Australian Therapeutic Goods Administration and the National Centre for Immunisation Research and Surveillance.
It will also support the World Health Organization in their work to improve vaccine-related data collection systems in Thailand and to develop communication strategies to improve understanding and acceptance of COVID-19 vaccines.
Thailand will also benefit from Australia’s broader support to the region, including $21 million to help establish the ASEAN Centre for Public Health Emergencies and Emerging Diseases, and our $100 million commitment to support vaccine access and distribution in Southeast Asia, under the Quad Vaccine Partnership.
