Prime Minister and Defense Minister, Gen. Prayut Chan-o-cha, has inspected a vaccination venue at CentralWorld shopping plaza in Pathum Wan district, Bangkok, while insisting that the COVID-19 vaccines are safe.
Today (May 31), Gen. Prayut visited the vaccination venue, jointly set up by Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA), the Thai Chamber of Commerce (TCC) and Chulabhorn Hospital, situated on the eighth floor of CentralWorld. The venue is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and has set an inoculation target of 2,500 to 3,000 people a day.
While testing the vaccination system, vaccine recipients included workers who are employed on the frontline to limit the spread of COVID-19 and people whose professions involve close interaction with many customers. The BMA has cooperated with the TCC and its hospital network in setting up COVID-19 vaccination units outside hospitals. CentralWorld is the 14th such unit. The BMA plans to set up 25 COVID-19 vaccination units outside hospitals across Bangkok.
The Prime Minister had discussions with personnel and people receiving the vaccines. He asked everyone not to get excited as it could affect their blood pressure. He confirmed that he had no side effects after being inoculated recently. The vaccines have been safely administered in many countries, with only some vaccine recipients experiencing numbness for a short time.
The Prime Minister said the government is working to provide channels for all people to have access to COVID-19 vaccines. In addition to people over 60 years old and those with congenital diseases who have signed up with the Mohpromt application, the government is to urgently provide vaccines to providers of public services. The government is working to provide the vaccines to the people. The vaccines will continue to arrive and they will be sufficient for all.
Gen. Prayut insisted that everyone has to follow the public health measures regardless of the situation.
