@foot.  Maybe because nobody who had 2x AZ doses is yet eligible for a 3rd dose as the Thai AZ vaccination programme only started giving 2nd doses at end of Aug thru Sep.  To me, in light of reports on how Omicron impacts vax efficacy,the real question is “when will the 6 month gap from 2nd to 3rd dose be reduced, as in (say) UK to 3-4 months?”

www.PhuketMustWin.com says cannot get booster if you have had two doses of AstraZeneca.  Why can't they get it right?
