This follows initial findings by the Attorney General and Legal Affairs Department (BHEUU) of the Prime Minister’s Department (JPM) who conducted due diligence in detail, particularly on the terms of the COVID-19 vaccine supply agreement that had been signed and made during the emergency period .

In relation to that, coinciding with the decision of the Council of Ministers meeting as well, the Ministry of Health will ensure that any procurement matters including the procurement of the COVID-19 vaccine under this ministry are carried out more carefully, with integrity and ensure that it has reciprocal benefits for the Government.
