According to Deputy Government Spokesperson Traisuree Taisaranakul, people with low immunity against or those unable to develop immunity after getting vaccinated can receive LAAB injections at public health centers listed by the provincial communicable disease committees nationwide, reports NNT.

She added that the Ministry of Public Health has assigned provincial health offices to survey and provide a list of patients requiring LAAB in order to provide them with comprehensive immunisation.

The ministry received its first LAAB batch on July 25 and the remaining order, totalling around 250,000 doses, will be delivered continuously until the end of the year.
