    Thailand’s PM Prayut Chan-o-cha is postponing his inaugural Covid‐19 vaccination after finding paperwork issues with the shipment from AstraZeneca.

    In a local media report, the vaccine shipment from South Korea that was sent to Thailand last Wednesday, was only supposed to arrive tomorrow, four days earlier.

    Authorities also find that the vaccine’s accompanying paperwork are neither complete nor accurate.

    According to Khaosod English, an official from the prime minister’s office has confirmed the news of the postponement without disclosing any reasons.

    Although the Sinovac vaccine is also being administered in Thailand, healthcare officials say Prayut is too old to receive it as its age limit bracket is 60 whilst Prayut is 66 years old.

    The Sinovac vaccine drive is set to commence on Monday, 2 weeks behind schedule. Those frontline health workers, hospitality workers and vulnerable groups will receive the vaccines first.

    Thailand authorities want more native-speaking English teachers and plan to recruit more than 10,000 English teachers for 300 schools to improve English proficiency among Thai students.

    According to Education Minister Nataphol Teepsuwan, teachers will be placed in schools once the pandemic has eased.

    He says the Cabinet has signed an agreement between the ministry, embassy and the Thai-Canadian Chamber of Commerce for the recruitment plan.

    The ministry plans to focus on teaching language in early levels of education because young students are at a fitting age for building communication skills, Nataphol says.

    Teachers will be either native English speakers or Thai teachers who hold an English degree.

    Along with 10,000 English teachers, the Cabinet also plans to recruit 10,000 Chinese teachers. Teachers will also receive training.
