Yesterday, (July 15th), 1,200 Bangsaen beach operators and residents were vaccinated for their first dose of the Sinovac Covid-19 vaccine.
The vaccination campaign took place at the Sanesuk Municipality. The Sanesuk mayor Narongchai Khunplume was present at the event in order to encourage 1,200 vendors, beach operators, and residents who were taking their first dose of the Sinovac Covid-19 vaccine.

Mr. Narongchai told Pattaya News reporters, “About 15 percent of the people who live in the Sanesuk Municipality areas have already received a Covid-19 vaccine.”
“Bangsaen beach vendor and operators are about at 30 percent in total of being vaccinated to fight Covid-19. They are a priority due to their direct exposure to many domestic tourists from out of town.” The mayor added.
“We are expecting about 70 percent of our local beach vendors to receive a Covid-19 vaccine by December of this year if we continue to receive enough vaccine supply for them from the central government.” The mayor explained.
“Bangsaen is one of the most popular domestic tourism attractions in Chonburi and attracts tens of thousands of tourists, especially from Bangkok. We are working on prioritizing vaccines to our area due to this factor and being such a popular destination for Bangkok residents, especially on weekends.” The mayor stated.
“We have requested for more vaccines and also privately purchased and booked Sinopharm vaccines at about 10,000 doses. ” The mayor concluded.
TPN media notes that the overall vaccination campaign in Chonburi continues at a trickle, primarily due to the vast majority of Thailand’s supply of vaccines currently being allocated to Bangkok, where the majority of Covid-19 cases in Thailand are originating and taking place currently.
