He visited a vaccination unit at a shopping mall in Bang Khae which is capable of injecting at most 3,000 people with a Covid-19 vaccine per day but is currently supplied with only 500 doses each day. He didn't explain how the shortfall came about. It comes amid reports some people are being kept waiting for hours for a jab . The lower-than-expected amount of vaccine supplies came despite the fact that about 2 million doses of the vaccine were allocated to Bangkok last week for the mass vaccination drive which started on Monday. Bangkok has been designated a dark red zone or maximum- and strict-control zone by the Public Health Ministry since the new wave of infections began. As of Wednesday, 70 major clusters of Covid-19 infections have been detected in 35 districts of Bangkok, said the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA).
