Two Asian countries have refused to use Chinese-made vaccines and cited concerns over “vaccine failure.” According to reports, Thailand and Indonesia backed off from using two Chinese vaccines when inoculating health workers.

Thailand has reportedly embraced the Astra-Zeneca vaccine as the second dose for those who have already received a dose of the Chinese vaccine. Indonesia has reportedly started to use the Moderna vaccine on its medical workers.

This comes amid several health worker deaths in those countries, as well as high COVID rates reported in a number of countries who use the Chinese vaccines.
