Currently, the MFU Wellness Centre, the Centre of Academic Services, the Sub-District Health Promoting Hospitals and the Deputy District Chief have cooperated under the University to Tambon (U2T) project to encourage local people in Nanglae, Thasud, and Mae Khao Tom Sub-districts especially the older adults and people with underlying diseases to register for the COVID-19 vaccines to achieve herd immunity. The University has teamed up with the community to raise people’s awareness about the benefits of vaccination and how to take care of themselves during the COVID-19 pandemic. MFU will run a vaccination campaign until people in Chiang Rai province receive the vaccines thoroughly.
The President of Mae Fah Luang University, Assoc.
