I will be VERY SURPRISED if this website works after 3:00 pm.  Vimut has already postponed all vaccinations because of 'government' allocation.  Now, I will be able to get an appointment after already registering with Vimut?  I don't think so.

 

I also had registered with Vimut via their LINE account, what, nearly two weeks ago now.... And still haven't had any contact from them in any form or fashion.

 

Nor has anyone else who managed to register with them in the brief several day window before they shut down that process as well.  Total limbo as far as where anyone in that process actually stands at this point.

Thus, that website was never meant or advertised to work for foreign nationals prior to today.

It was open for all, anybody could and did register,  about 2 (?) weeks ago. 

Then they closed it, "for diplomats only".

Existing appointments were not honored.

One thing noteworthy about the info that is on the MOPH website this morning is, despite it not working for registrations at present, an updated list of hospital sites intended for foreign national vaccinations.

 

And it looks to be divided into two sections:

 

First, a couple hospitals that supposedly are currently available to registered foreigners. Note the "Available Now" references below:

And then second, two facilities that appear to not be currently available, but apparently will become available at some point:

Bangrak was one of the only two foreigner vaccination locations listed by MoPH previously, but that facility has been totally invisible and silent for the past week weeks. So no idea what's going on with them at this point.

 

Phyathai II above is interesting, because AFAIK, that hospital had never before been publicly mentioned as a venue for foreigner COVID vaccinations under the government program. But it's a decent hospital, they do have EN speaking staff, and it's easily accessible from the BTS Sanam Pao station.

Never heard that... And if it was "open" at some prior point, it probably was a mistake on their part, which they obviously remedied along the way.

Well at least Brits who need to renew their passports can then kill 2 birds with 1 stone in the case of BKK!😄
