Singapore has donated 122,400 doses of Astra Zeneca vaccine (AZ) and other medical supplies to Thailand

I refer to yesterday’s online news that Singapore has donated 122,400 doses of Astra Zeneca vaccine (AZ) and other medical supplies to Thailand to help her fight C19.

I welcome that move but what surprises me and I believe many others as well is that very, very few people in Singapore knew that we have AZ vaccine in our government C19 stockpiles. The government has never make public before that we have AZ vaccine in our vaccine stockpile.

Singaporeans were told and offered Pfizer BioNtech vaccine, Moderna vaccine and Sinovac vaccines by the government and private healthcare providers. I ask since we also have AZ vaccine, why wasn’t it made available to our citizens first? Are there any unsatisfactory issues relating to AZ vaccine that it was not made available to Singaporeans? Did we donate sub-par vaccine, by our standards, to Thailand etc?

To put it bluntly, I liken the pap government’s donation of AZ vaccine to Thailand as using our collective money to play Santa Claus to Thailand.

I hope that the government would not keep silent but explain this whole vaccine donation and related issues clearer to those citizens who care enough about our country’s vaccine choices, types of vaccine purchased, national vaccination programs and how much budget was allocated for our C19 vaccines etc.

Think.

  • WHO Approval:

    Should have make available all WHO approved Vaccine including Sinovac and Sinopharm on the same terms.
    More would have been vaccinated by now…

    When one does act of charity,it must be sincere.
    But Charity must begin at HOME.
    When we take from Sgs’ reserves,we must make sure sgs get more than any FOREIGNER INCLUDING PR.Btw,hope the AZ vaccines are helpful to the recipients.We,sgs,dont quibble over some small help to our neighbours but $100 BILLION SQUANDERED ON FTs/PRs and rich citizens is not right.
    Reserves shud benefit the most needy sgs among us first before others.
    Do ministers think this xenophobic???

  • Why Waste Our Money ?:

    At first our MOH donate to Johor, then few weeks later to Thailand and tonight news on TV MOH donates to Indonesia. These are not poor countries.

    Why purchase the Vaccine in the first place if they are not meant for Singaporeans ? Did the money used come from the Minister salaries ?

    In fact, right now there are many Singaporeans who are unemployed or underemployed who have problem finding money to buy food for the family. Why not help our own people first ?

    LHL what’s happening. Are you letting your Ministers go on Auto Pilot ? We do not mind if they are using their own salaries for this donation. WTF

    That 122,400 doses of AZ must be EITHER has NO TAKER or has adverse issue! The Number 122,400 is RATHER ODD! Either of the original stock of 200,000 doses(like the original order of 200,000 doses of Sinovac), 77,600 have been used to POKED WILLING Folks under the National Vaccination Program. Btw under the Holee National Vaccination Program, NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO CHOOSE A PARTICULAR VACCINE, be it Pfizer, MODERNA and NOW out of the BLUE now we KNOW, AstraZeneca! Holee smoke!

    ONLY FOLKS WHO HAVE PAID FEES TO PRIVATE CLINICS RANGING FROM $23 to $98 And BEEN JABBED BY SINOVAC AND SINOPHARM, HAVE A PERSONAL CHOICE AND KNOW WHAT IS BEING POKED INTO THEIR BODY!

    Like Simon says THINK the LEEDERSHIT of Mai Hum should let the CITIZEN KNOW HOW MUCH BUDGET FROM THE $100 Billion Covid19 RELIEF FUND IS BEING ALLOCATED and REALLY USED FOR COVID19 VACCINES, ETC! Maybe in the NEXT Parliamentary Sitting, the Trusted and Reliable PSP and Sleepy Co-Driver WP should BRING OUT THIS IMPORTANT NATIONAL ISSUE FOR DISCUSSION!

    Response: Great Questions! When those mNRA vaccines like Pfizer and MODERNA, were made available, the Husband(Mai Hum)and Wifey(Holee Jinx)Tag Team have pre-ordered and PRE-PAID more than $1billions for more than 6.5 millions doses of the Pfizer vaccines for the expected 80% of our population. They have a SECRET Agreement with Pfizer to bring in the vaccine ASAP so that the National Vaccination Program could proceed in early this year! ALSO Under the SECRET Agreement, batches of the vaccine will arrive in SinKapore FAST and FURIOUS according to the AGREED SCHEDULE! Btw, the Holee Pfizer vaccine has only 6 months shelf life!

    However, about 600,000 to 700,000 folks have chosen NOT TO BE POKED by the Holee Pfizer jabs and preferred to WAIT LOONG LOONG TAN CUCKOO for Chinese vaccines Sinovac and later Sinopharm! As time goes by, the Tag Team got DESPERATE and SWEATY under the armpit as the CONTINUOUS NONSTOP arrival of the Holee Pfizer vaccine mean the HUGE STOCKPILE is getting out of hand! Therefore, there an URGENT NEED to perform some NOBLE humanitarian act: 1st, they donated 500,000 doses of the Holee Pfizer vaccine to Australia, then 100,000 doses to Johore, followed by Thailand then Indonesia. All these countries as you have said are fairly rich countries. WHY they didn’t donate to poor countries like Timbuktu?

    DIDN’T KNOW THAT SINKIELAND ALSO IMPORTED AstraZenecca vaccine now in some doubts of its risks and efficacy.

    Poland is also donating the same to other countries.

    Poland sends over 100,000 doses of AstraZeneca vaccine to Egypt

    https://au.finance.yahoo.com/news/poland-sends-over-100-000-180617525.html

    A lot of eligible seniors must be waiting for Sinovac or Sinopharm which appears to be too slow to arrive.
