AstraZeneca's partner in Thailand on Wednesday began its first deliveries of COVID-19 vaccines after production schedules for Thailand and other parts of Southeast Asia. Siam Bioscience said the first locally produced AstraZeneca doses were delivered to Thailand's Ministry of Health ahead of the June 7 start of the country's official mass vaccination program.

 AstraZeneca signed a pact with Siam Bioscience last year to be its vaccine production and distribution center in Southeast Asia. As part of the plan, AstraZeneca has to deliver six million doses to Thailand in June, and 10 million doses monthly from July to November, with a final five million doses in December.
