·      The British Embassy’s objective remains to secure equitable access to vaccines for British nationals across Thailand (particularly the most vulnerable) within the national vaccination programme. The previous Ambassador to Thailand spoke to Thai authorities about this issue several times, including when he has met the Prime Minister. The British Ambassador designate continues to discuss this with them.

 

·       The Thai government confirmed on 19th July they will ensure equal access to vaccines for all foreign nationals residing in Thailand, as well as Thai nationals. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs is working with the Ministry of Public to open an online platform for foreigners who wish to be vaccinated. More details will be announced in due course.

 

·       There are now various limited opportunities for foreigners to get vaccinated in Thailand and more are planned. People are getting vaccines (including 4000 BNs so far, according to Thai authorities) but in many areas there are limited supplies and registration and vaccination programmes have been temporarily suspended. In the areas most affected by COVID-19 there is increasing pressure on medical services. You may find it difficult to access COVID-19 testing and medical care.

 

·       The CCSA has confirmed that foreigners in Thailand should not contact their Embassy to register for a vaccine. If a hospital advises you to contact the Embassy to register you should explain this to them.

 

·       Some private hospitals are accepting registrations for the Moderna vaccine, which is expected to be available from October. You may need to pay in advance.

 

·       The only vaccines that have been approved and procured for use in Thailand are AstraZeneca, Sinovac and Sinopharm. You may not be able to choose which you receive. You should contact the hospital or vaccination centre for more information.

 

·       Foreigners in Bangkok can register for a COVID test at the Thai-Japanese Stadium, Bangkok via the Thai social security website. You will need to provide your passport details.

The Consulate couldn't even get the info correct.  They say :

 

 British Nationals who are at least 60 years old with one of 7 stated chronic illnesses and all employees of British Chamber of Commerce Thailand member companies operating in dark red zones can register interest to receive a vaccine via this website

 

when we all know that it should be "60 years old or with.......".  I'm surprised that the Consulate is unaware of that.  I did email them when they promulgated the info, but didn't receive any reply or acknowledgment.

The Update from the British Embassy 21 July 2021.   Fine words but of little comfort to those of us living in rural Issan.   I have just returned from Khon Kaen city following my weekly seek and search of the situation in this Province.   The message has not changed since the supposed roll out began.  'sorry no hab vaccine, we cannot vaccinate foreigners until all Thai people are vaccinated.  There would appear to be a disconnect between officialdom in the 'Centre of the Universe' (Bangkok) and authorities upcountry.

 

 

So someone in authority is being extremely disengenuous, me thinks.

Thanks for pointing out this mistake, Tony M. We'll amend. As you will appreciate, we get a lot of messages so apologies if we weren't able to respond to yours as quickly as you might have wished.

You're welcome. I was aware of the correct information, but there are possibly many who would have thought that they did not "qualify" after seeing your published info (although I can't believe that there is any ex-pat here now who is not aware of the apparent discrimination, etc).

The Thai government confirmed on 19th July they will ensure equal access to vaccines for all foreign nationals residing in Thailand, as well as Thai nationals.

Right after the "more-equal" Thai nationals have been vaccinated or next December when British nationals can purchase highly marked-up vaccines directly from for-maximum-profit private hospitals.

Unbelievable!!

I am over 70 no pink card, no yellow house book, barely mobile and not registered at BPH or any other hospital except the tiny one in the village,    I live near Sattahip so Pattaya is as far away and as inaccessible/ expensive as going to Bangkok. 

 

I still pay UK tax and have done for over 20 years living in Thailand.

 

During my working life I have generated millions of pounds worth of export business for British Industry and this is the thanks.

 

The British government needs to load up a C130 with Pfizer or Moderna along with support personal and fly into each of the regional airports for a few days wherein shots could be given in order to look after their countrymen.

Anything short of that is not fulfilling your commitments during this very serious pandemic.

I doubt they feel any such commitment. Beyond hospital or prison visits to idiot tourists who fall off motorbikes or get themselves arrested, and offering to put them in touch with someone who will bail them out, the impression is that they rather despise those of us who have chosen to come and live here - which reflects the view of much of the UK population, so it's unrealistic to expect very much. Year after year we look after ourselves and our families and call on them for nothing, but what is developing into a serious emergency where we are unable to help ourselves has exposed just how little we can expect from our government, despite, as you say, our continued contribution in the form of income tax.

All the lip service from the Embassy is laughable. The British Government should step forward to help its citizens anywhere in the world. This is a worldwide pandemic and needs a worldwide response. But then again that incompetent running the UK doesn’t inspire any hope for any of us. As he said about anybody over 80, they are going to die anyway. What a self serving ego driven <deleted>. We need somebody of the ilk of a Churchill, not a Churchill wannabe. I served the country for ten years in the RN, but I guess it doesn’t count for much when you get older. Why don’t we have a PM the caliber of New Zealand’s PM?

Get your head out of the sand British Embassy. Every Embassy, not just the British Embassy needs to step up and assist the Thai Govermment with vaccine donations, both for foreign citizens and other needy groups. Thailand does not have this under control and the Embassies who recognise this and do nothing are culpable for not rendering any assistance. Don't fool yourself into thinking that a meaningless weekly email update is being remotely helpful because you are merely regurgitating information that is already in the public domain.

I've got an old printer in the cupboard in my study.
I think the ink cartridge is still full.
If i maximize the font a little bit and print all that off I bet I could get 50 sheets easy.

then I could cut those 50 sheets into 200 nice little rectangles.

 

Save me going to tesco to buy bog roll for the next few weeks...

My missus spoke to a health worker in our Isaan village, so few people have taken up the offer of a vaccination in the Surin area that she said she will get us both vaccinated, obviously Sinovac but it's better than nothing until a decent vaccine can be obtained, years end probably, who knows what will come of it, wait and see.

Welcome to the club, many of us are in the same boat, I am registered at: thai intervac, board of trade (Thailand), British Chambers of Commerce, Bangkok Pattaya hospital, Pattaya Memorial hospital, and still I can't get a shot, I'm waiting on the new platform to be announced, maybe tomorrow or maybe next week, who knows? But I  will register yet again, I really don't know why I have to go to BKK for a jab when surely Pattaya must have the biggest congregation of expats from every country on the planet outside of Bangkok?? The slopey Teflon shoulders of the British embassy and others is shining bright in this total sh!t show.

I didn't know about 59 plus, I'm well over that. It doesn't seem to be useless, just the worst one going. I'm not to bothered myself as our area seems to be covid free but I will be making a one day journey to Bangkok in November, straight to the embassy, out and straight back to my village again so any little plus in protection can't be bad however if it is harmful to anyone over 59 then that is a different bag.

I have yet to read why Sinovac has the 59 recommendation other than the trials carried out by the Chinese did not include any people over that age group, so maybe as the effects on over 59 were not avaiilable, that is the reasoning.   

 

Another question to think about- quite a few countries are thinking/considering about mixing vaccines for greater efficiacy, but apart the Chinese and a few Middle East countries such as Bahrein etc. none of them are considering including Sinovvac orSinopharm, but the likes of AZand MnRA vaccines. 

 

I wonder why?  Could be the 59 problem raising its head again.

Apparently the Chinese are now vaccinating the over 60's with Sinovac. Why they didn't do so before was to concentrate all their resources on the younger working population, they have like the West, a large older population.

Of course they are.  Only to be expected from a country that has no regard for human life and could never acknowledge that the Western vaccines are superior to their own!

 

However, lets conclude this conversation as I suspect you have no other option than to accept Sinovac in your particular location and some protection is better than none.

 

Incidentally i was offered Sinovac recently and turned it down and will wait for AZ to become available.    Having a history of Anaphylaxis, my UK doctor has advised against the likes of Pifzer and Moderna.

 

Like you I live in the sticks outside a small village so I really only have to concern myself when I go to the city and by choice I do not encourge visitors.

A post denigrating and calling Chinese vaccines useless have been removed.

Whilst it may be less effective in certain cases ie Delta strain it is by no means useless.

At the end of the day this is a Thai government sponsored vaccine and the forum and or yourself can get in trouble for comments like this so stop it.
