The Thai government’s nationwide COVID-19 vaccination rollout starts on Monday, beginning with the elderly and those with any of seven underlying diseases.
Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul said provincial governors and public health chief are to manage distribution in their areas, adding that he has asked provincial public health offices to tell hospitals in each province that they need to inoculate people from today.
Meanwhile, Bangkok Governor Aswin Kwanmuang said all 25 vaccination stations in Bangkok are ready to serve the people and registrations will be carried out via the “Thai Ruam Jai” application. The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) expects to inoculate up to 70,000 people a day initially, leveling off to 38,000–50,000 people eventually.
He added that, from today until June 14, if people come according to an SMS appointment, they will get the AstraZeneca jabs.
