Good news! Foreigners in Thailand will soon be able to use walk-in vaccine centres


Recommended Posts

the Deputy Spokesperson at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Saturday revealed more information regarding the inoculation of expats in Thailand.

How long will it take this time for MOPH to deny all this again?

the bad news is there are no walk in centers. 

Good news indeed!   It won't be long before they will be offering us free, one year visa extensions with every jab! 

Beware they now have millions of doses of Sinovac nobody wants. The Mor Prom registration system was a big flip flop coz of this. I want to take a vaccine but prefer one that's at least WHO approv

Went there last week to renew my non O-A

 

Was packed. At 8.30, ppl queuing up to the front door.

Inside all full. People almost sitting next to each other. People walking around.

 

Shame was, that a few foreigners thought they should have a phone call with mask down, when waiting inside building. Others just thought, they were at the beach. Walking around with slippers and shorts.

Others, shouting at their Thai daughter (sorry) wife who was brought along to be the translator.

 

 

Off topic to ALFHUY - renewing your O-A, did you use that LMG insurance for 6000 baht for O-A holders ? I know its a 'throw away' type of insurance anyway but just to get the extension it would work.  I've got an O-A as well.

I am with Pacific Cross.

Mine was 51k

I'm not insured to the bare minimum. 

They can see on their computer what kind of insurance you have, which company, what level of cover, start and end date.

My old one will expire on 31st May and the new one starts on 01st June.

They wanted as well a print out of my insurance papers (which luckily I had).

All went smoothly.

Great thanks, Im looking at PC as well, I have to dump my foreign insurance - far too costly and I don't think immigration accepts foreign insurance for O-A extensions,  cheers. Or I may be gone before extension time to get a jab.......

A lot of confusing information on the internet.

 

I went to a registration booth in CM and they allowed foreigner to register but vaccination will probably be in August.

I could not agree with you more.

Totally confusing and it varies by location. The rules are not even province wide.

I went to a 'walk in' this morning and registered. V Day for me  is 7th June (in theory).

Pink cards were told 1st June and Thais earlier than that.

I will only know next month.

Sinovac for under 60's and AZ for the rest.

It is already "here", in our upmarket condo. 3 cases this week, all hospitalised. And we follow very strict protocols.

Where did you "walk in", as in which city, location?

The heading says "Good news"

But true to form is a long list of complainers.

You would think the headline said "Bad news" reading negative comment after negative comment.

 

 

Thailand looks after me very well, my Thai maid cleans my house, my Thai gardener does the garden and grows my organic vegetables, the Thai pool guy cleans my pool, immigration is a breeze, Thailand provides me with thousands of restaurants to choose from, cheap medicine, a nice climate, smiley funny people who don't complain much and thousands of petite unfeminist beautiful women with silky skin and lovely hair.

A luxury life in tropical paradise.

 

Thailand looks after me very well.

Thankyou Thailand.

 

 

I had all this too, maid, pool cleaning staff, technicians on hand to change a light bulb. But now we have Covid in the building. We have been self-isolating for over 2 weeks, and in effect since Songkran; pool and all facilities (tennis, basket ball, squash, gym "soft" closed, and no one has dared use them). This clusterfork is getting real.

Another new announcement, fist register in July, then August then all Thais first. Now fantasy walk in centres. Our local one is planned at a TPP petrol station on a very busy road, can't see that working out well, maybe a free bottle of water for the jabees?

Off topic

Yes most of the complaints are off topic as usual. 

 

Next someone will start harping on about TM30s, jetski hire and thieving ladyboys.

This from Bangkok's governor yesterday regarding plans for 25 vaccination center locations (these are the ones ostensibly intended for the Thai general public... and MAYBE us...):

Then the thought of an expensive trip home for 2 decent jabs and another ASQ return here is getting closer to getting the credit card out !!!

I will be on the first plane home to the USA if that happens getting a quality vaccination of Pfizer or Moderna free of charge

Yesterday just out of curiosity I was looking for the vaccination center at Central Lat Phrao that was mentioned in the press. Couldn't find any. I thought the location 3rd floor was a typo, so I looked at 5th floor at the BCC venue, closed. I mean something like this must be big. Is it closed already and was just opened for one day as a PR stunt? Or a misreporting mixed up Centara Hotel and Central Plaza? So many questions and everything clear as mud....

 

[EDIT] I did a google search and found out that those idiots from a certain newspaper that can not be named are obvioulsy not able to distinguish between Central Plaza Shopping Center and Centara Grand Hotel which are close together but two separate buildings. Because the vaccination venue is the Skyhall event room on the 3rd floor of Centara Hotel.
