Listen to Parinda and how she draws her expertise on immunisation policy to give this amazing interview at Thailand Today.

Parinda started by explaining what a vaccine passport or certificate is, and how it helps health organisations assess the vaccination status of an individual. 

She then went to clarify that although vaccine passports nay be ready, they can only be used when the country reopens.
