In addition, the project aims to provide people with access to public health services, and to continuously improve the quality of life and take care of the health of people in the community. Following the objective of this project, the area of Mae Sot district is one of the target areas for vaccine distribution, especially among villagers and foreign workers.
Previously, the Ministry of Health at the province has hosted a seminar on promoting the campaign of vaccine distribution to the people. Meanwhile, ‘Principal Healthcare’ realized that the vaccine distribution is crucial, especially the booster dose. Therefore, we joined hands with the Central Group and distributed the vaccine to public health officials, villagers, and the foreign workers in the area.
Supatra Chirathivat Executive Vice President-Corporate Relations and Social Affairs Central Group mentioned that Central Group under the project “Central Tam” (Central does) continuously pays attention to supporting public health in all areas. The support includes providing areas to distribute vaccines in Central’s chain shopping centers nationwide, supporting the work of medical personnel, and continuously promoting research on drugs or vaccines against COVID-19. Central Group with the Centrality Team in the area of Lampang and Tak provinces have participated in this cooperation to support provincial public health and Principal Healthcare. Therefore, all sectors can operate with ease and access to the people, especially vulnerable groups in remote areas so that everyone can get vaccinated thoroughly as soon as possible.
