It has been obvious for a long time what the vaccine priorities are in Thailand both in what they procure and who gets first priority, hiso and tourism is top - saving the lives of those at risk is bottom of the pile

Saving Phuket, Samui, Koh Tao, Krabi and next on the list will be Pattaya... if Chonburi can get infection levels down.

The rest of Thailand is immaterial.

I think that ALL Thai people are important and not only those who are living in a tourist area... The tourists will stay away for a while, because there are too many uncertainties. Hua Hin reopen in 1st of November , today Maybe it will be delayed... a tourist has to make arrangements before going on holiday and as long as the Government is switching dates all the time and can not ease the rules, tourists will not even make a plan for the short term. So why on earth is there such a hyrry for the touristic areas.. Vaccinate everyone even in low risk areas it is better to prevent new outbreaks
