Thailand’s Health Minister is now claiming that the first stage of clinical trials of a locally-produced vaccine brew will get started next month.

The vaccine has performed satisfactorily in animal testing, showing an ability to stimulate immunity. Once the vaccine has successfully completed all 3 phases, the manufacturers will seek approval from the local FDA and, and then go into production locally.
