Options for qualified foreigners open in Chonburi for a Covid-19 vaccine, MedPark Hospital offers nighttime vaccination period for foreigners in Thailand

National –

Options are beginning to open up for foreigners to register for a Covid-19 vaccine, including in Chonburi, although some requirements apply, with officials currently focused on people over 60 and in vulnerable groups.

First, MedPark Hospital in Bangkok has introduced “Going the Extra Mile, Extra Hours” for foreign nationals to receive the Covid-19 vaccine after business hours, from August 2nd to the 9th, to avoid busy daily vaccination services.

Pongpat Patanavanich, managing director of MedPark Hospital, told reporters that due to the severe situation of the Covid-19 epidemic in Thailand, especially in Bangkok, MedPark is attempting to accelerate the vaccination process in order to build immunity.

This also includes hundreds of thousands of foreigners residing in Thailand who have been registered under the Thailandintervac project, under a collaboration between the hospital, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and the Department of Disease Control, Ministry of Public Health.

Eligible foreigners (see below) can register at https://www.thailandintervac.com/ with Medpark.

In order not to affect the scheduled vaccination appointments of Thai nationals, the “Going the Extra Mile, Extra Hours” campaign, therefore, has been launched to extend the vaccination service from 6:00 PM. to 10:00 PM. for pre-registered foreigners in order to support the government’s vaccine allocation policy.

Dr. Pongpat further stated that the hospital would also prioritize a target group of Thais and foreigners aged 60 and above, patients with seven chronic diseases, and foreign women pregnant for at least 12 weeks to receive the vaccination as quickly as possible.

Finally, Samithivej Sriracha Hospital in Chonburi is also now accepting pre-registration for the above-qualified foreigners and can save a trip to Bangkok. You can pre-register and learn more here:
