More than seventy percent of people in Chonburi received Covid -19 vaccines, says MOPH

Chonburi –

More than seventy percent of people in Chonburi have received a Covid – 19 vaccine, according to the Ministry of Public Health as of yesterday, October 27th, 2021.

According to the Ministry of Public Health Immunization Center, from February to October this year in total 2,047,621 residents from Chonburi have received vaccines. This number is based on the registered population who have their primary dwelling in Chonburi, those with housing registrations, etc.

However, in terms of total numbers of people who got a vaccine IN CHONBURI including non-registered, migrant workers, foreigners, etc, 1,648,956 of them have received their first dose which is 80.5 percent of the population and 1,284,303 of them have received their second dose which is 62.7 percent.

For elderly people aged over 60 and have personal health problems, 268,449 have received their first dose of a Covid-19 vaccine which is 73.4 percent while 234,798 of them have received their second dose which is 64.2 percent.

In fact, looking at the overall grid below (in Thai only, unfortunately) only Phuket and Bangkok have higher levels of the population vaccinated in terms of overall provinces. (This is based on registered populations, which is why some areas like Bangkok, with many transitory residents, will be over 100%). Chonburi is number 4 on the list going down on the left-hand side.

Yesterday (October 27th)  13,567 people in Chonburi have received a Covid-19 vaccine which is now in total 3,043,737 people who have had a vaccine in Chonburi at a total estimate of 71.09 percent of the entire Chonburi population, according to the MOPH.

TPN media notes that the math, which was presented by the MOPH and not TPN, is not “hard math” with so many people in Chonburi not registered local residents and originally from different provinces or countries in terms of foreigners and migrants. However, MOPH officials are confident that over 70% of residents in Chonburi as a whole have had vaccines and in some tourism-dependent areas like Pattaya, they estimate those numbers to be much higher at this time. The goal for Pattaya/Banglamung is 80% of the population (including non-registered, such as foreigners and migrants and those from other provinces) vaccinated. Koh Larn officials recently said 100% of the eligible island population was fully vaccinated from Covid-19 and also recently have been giving booster shots to the population of the island.

Pattaya is set to open to vaccinated foreign tourists with only a single night of “quarantine” at a hotel as they wait for Covid-19 results from a required test next week on November first.
