Every needle has a price

From Thairath, July 22, 2021
Title: Every needle has a price.
On man’s back: Thai people in the COVID-government
On the arms, left: People Right: Get profits from people’s lives
On a coin bag: Change [“Change” here means some corrupt extra money such as a commission or kickback.]
Phi Nooring: Really cruel heart
Mouse: Prayuth gets out.

[Refers to the concerns and claims related to corruption to vaccine procurement. As such corruption is part of every level of Thai society, it is logical to question the vaccine procurement as well.
This cartoon alleges that their may be corruption in arranging the vaccines. It might also reference other vaccines now being imported such as the Moderna which, at 3000 baht for two shots, is well beyond the reach of low-income Thais.]
