Thailand’s National Health Security Office (NHSO) has so far paid 1.509 billion baht ($45.65 million) as compensation to 12,714 people who developed side-effects after they received Covid-19 vaccines.
The NHSO on March 9 reported that from May 19, 2021 to March 8 this year, a total of 15,933 people had filed complaints of negative reactions to Covid-19 vaccines.
The NHSO said 2,328 complaints were rejected after it ruled that the side-effects were not related to the vaccinations.
Of the rejected cases, 875 complainants are appealing against the earlier decision of the NHSO.
It added that 891 cases were pending consideration.
