by Xinhua. ADVERTISEMENT. BANGKOK, Thailand — Thailand has administered more than 40 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine so far, according to official figures released on Sunday.

Amid widespread criticism of the slow rollout of vaccination in Thailand, the health minister discussed the process of vaccines being approved for distribution within Thailand.
