The National Health Security Office (NHSO) will provide financial assistance to the 20-year-old college student whose leg was amputated after receiving a mixed dose vaccine formula.
The accident resulted from the government-sponsored vaccination so the student, Ketsinee Kongkaew, is eligible to receive compensation, said Dr Athaporn Limpanylers, the NHSO deputy secretary-general.
His office has asked Ms Ketsinee’s family to file a formal compensation claim with the NHSO’s Surat Thani branch today, so it can be processed as soon as possible.
Ms Ketsinee, a student at Phangnga Community College, suffered from acute arterial occlusion after receiving an AstraZeneca Covid-19 vaccine as her second shot. She is known to have first received a Sinovac jab.
According to Jamras Khanadpol, director of Phangnga Community College, the student began feeling unwell after getting her second shot on Aug 13.
Ms Ketsinee started complaining of a fever and chest pains around three days later, said Anupong Thamrong, a classmate. She went to see a doctor at Phangnga Hospital, who diagnosed her with a bladder infection.
However, she was rushed back to the hospital after she began experiencing severe pain in her left leg. She was referred to Surat Thani Hospital, where an X-ray revealed a blood clot that required urgent surgery.
As her condition continued to worsen, the hospital decided to transfer her to the better-equipped Krabi Hospital, then Songklanagarind Hospital in Hat Yai, where doctors decided to amputate her leg, Mr Anupong said.
Dr Athaporn said adverse effects from vaccines were a rare occurrence.
From May 19 to Oct 12, the NHSO has approved 293 million baht in compensation to 3,972 people. Of them, 47 have been left permanently disabled.
