Dr. Suwannachai Wattanayingcharoenchai, director-general of the Health Department, says, “Inthanin is the leading café brand for health and hygiene that has participated in every new initiative of our department. This time, Inthanin is also the very first café brand to answer to our invitation to help encouraging Thais to get a COVID-19 vaccine jab. In response to the government’s urgent policy on vaccination rollout, Inthanin has quickly provided the support in a tangible and comprehensive manner too. On behalf of the Health Department, I would like to thank the private sector including Bangchak Group and especially Inthanin for supporting our policies all along. We do hope that our initiative from June onward will successfully drive Thais towards COVID-19 vaccination that will pave way for herd community, which is a goal of the Public Health Ministry”.
