US expats plead for vaccine help in viral Thailand


BANGKOK – Some of President Joe Biden’s and his predecessor Donald Trump’s most active boosters in Southeast Asia have joined forces, demanding the US State Department vaccinate all American expats in Thailand as a model for international distribution, instead of discriminating against them.

“Biden has publicly announced that all Americans now have access to vaccines, but the government and State seem to have forgotten about us Americans living abroad,” said the chair of Democrats Abroad in Thailand, Paul Risley.

“What are we, chopped liver? 

“These are vaccines, offered for free to all in the US, and most of them have been manufactured with taxpayer dollars.”

Some worried American expats plan “to fly back to the US, costly and risky travel that might bring variants back to the US,” Risley said.
