Must read

A man has died at his house in central Thailand’s Samut Prakan on Tuesday night Shortly after receiving the second dose of the Covid-19 vaccine, Moderna, following an initial dose of China’s Sinovac vaccine in September.

Police and rescue workers were called to his home at approximately 12.30 am, Pol Capt Adithes Phocharoen, a duty investigator, told reporters on Wednesday.

Upon arrival, they found Mr. Sithipol Bovornkittipaisal, 26, lying dead on the ground floor of his house. There was no sign of physical assault.

Mr. Sithipol’s mother Mrs. Sopa Khotpakdi, 50, said her son had received the first dose of China’s Sinovac vaccine in early September but did not know where he received it.

She said he had also placed an order for the Moderna vaccine with Synphaet Theparak Hospital. He went to the hospital on Tuesday afternoon and was inoculated with the Moderna vaccine.

She told police that her son had returned home with no sign of side effects.

However, late on Tuesday night, while playing on his phone on the second floor of the house, Mr. Sithipol began experiencing chest pain and breathing difficulties.

Moderna Sinovac Mix and Match

His mother said she called for an emergency response team from Paolo Hospital Samutprakarn. While waiting, relatives carried Mr. Sithipol, who was by then unconscious, down to the ground floor.

When the medical rescue team arrived they immediately started giving him CPR and used a defibrillator on him. Sadly they could not revive him and he was reported dead on arrival at the hospital.

Doctors said Mr. Sithipol’s body was taken to Ramathibodi Chakri Naruebodindra Hospital for a postmortem examination to determine whether his death was related to the mix and match of Moderna and Sinovac Covid-19 vaccines.

Meanwhile, Thailand’s Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul has urged those who are still waiting for the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine to register for the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine.

Ditch your paid Moderna vaccine orders and come for Pfizer vaccines from the government. Those who have ordered the Moderna vaccine but have yet to receive it, the government will give you Pfizer vaccine free instead,” he said.

The health minister said that while the government of Thailand is capable of administering up to one million vaccine doses each day, the rate of vaccination has been declining in recent weeks.

However, he added, the decline in jabs might simply be due to the fact that many people have already had all their vaccination shots.
