It works well with the omikron species as well.

Dr. Yong also stated that

From the data, it is clear that a lethal primary vaccine such as Sinovac Sinofarm and the Pfizer triple booster dose at 5 to 7 months after the 2nd dose has the same effect as the Pfizer 3 vaccine. Needles. Different types of vaccinations will complement each other.

Approximately 100 samples per week have been collected. Recently, the BA.4-BA.5 subspecies of omikron has not been found in Thailand and the center is still closely monitoring.

As for the opening of the big semester at the same time across the country on May 17, Mr. Suphat Champathong, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Education (MOE) revealed that readiness

The Prof. has prepared for the first semester, with schools that have passed the Thai Stop Covid assessment to request on-site opening of almost 100 percent. The part that hasn't passed the assessment is now under renovation

Vaccination section for teachers

The second injection is now almost 100 percent complete.

And there are some who are gradually injecting the 3rd and 4th needles. As for students aged 12-18 years, there is nothing to worry about. Those whose parents have allowed them to gradually inject the second needle, almost complete. It is expected that soon after the semester starts, it will be complete. all

But what they are worried about is the group of children 5-11 years old. Currently, only about 55 percent of the first needle can be injected, partly because we started the injection during the semester break.

But after school starts, I understand that everything should be faster.

The Permanent Secretary also said that

The concern is that large schools with more than 2,000 children will have to manage the number of students well around the dining time.

distance according to measures

Children must not be too crowded.

Since everyone has to wear a mask when eating, therefore, children must be advised not to talk during the meal.

because of the information that has been reported in the past

Children are more prone to infection during meals.

Therefore, special instructions are required for this, washing hands, wearing masks, and measures 6-6-7 are also matters that all schools must be aware of and strictly follow.

Not the first week of the semester. Strictly take care of each other fully.

But as time passes, it becomes habitual and loose. These are things every school has to remind itself and emphasize to children all the time.

Dr. Kiatpoom Wongrachit, Permanent Secretary of the Ministry of Public Health, said that before the start of semester 1/2565 on May 17, there were 4 consecutive days off, making it possible to travel.

Including activities to gather both parents and students before school starts

Without full self-protection, they can infect and infect each other unknowingly.

Due to the vast majority of omikron strains, infected people tend to be asymptomatic.

And when a normal semester starts, there may be a large number of infections in the school.

Therefore, before returning to the teaching system as usual, ask parents, students, teachers and educational personnel to

Assess your own risk first.

In case of risk or symptoms of illness, ATK should be checked immediately.

The Permanent Secretary also said that

I would like to reiterate that there is no compulsory ATK test before entering the class.

and does not require regular check-ups every 3-5 days or every week

But ask to be examined when there is a risk or when there are preliminary symptoms. It is advisable to protect yourself at all times.

by wearing a mask, social distancing, washing hands, screening, reducing congestion and cleaning

including receiving complete vaccinations

The group of secondary school children aged 12-18 years should receive stimulation needles.

And elementary school children aged 5-11 years should receive complete vaccination.

This will help reduce the risk of severe symptoms and death. If an infected person is found in a school, follow a response plan.

There is no need to close the whole school like in the past.
