    The country’s vaccination drive is only making slow progress. Less than three percent of the population have been vaccinated so far.

    But Thailand is about to launch human trials of its first mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. If it is successful, the country could emerge as an important supplier of mRNA vaccines in Asia.
