Bangkok Patana School – Mix and Matching Vaccines – Evidence so far

Professor Nicholas Day, Director of the Mahidol Oxford Research Unit (MORU) Bangkok and Professor Sir Nicholas White, Chairman of the Wellcome Trust’s South East Asian Research Units at MORU met with the Bangkok Patana School community on Wednesday 17th November. More than 100 people logged in to the virtual event to learn more about the spread of COVID-19, vaccinations and treatments. As leaders of the field both here in Thailand and overseas, they are well-versed in the effectiveness of vaccines, mask-wearing and the most effective drugs used to treat COVID patients. They fielded questions from members of the Patana community including those on the effectiveness of ATK testing, discerning the differences between COVID and the seasonal flu and antiviral treatments currently available in Thailand.
