Pattaya’s Covid-19 vaccinations commenced this morning.
Thousands of people who had pre-registered to get their vaccinations arrived at the sprawling Eastern National Indoor Sports Stadium complex at the break of dawn Thursday, May 20, to sign in and get their much anticipated life-saving vaccinations.
Mayor Sonthaya Kunplome, his deputies, Banglamung district officials and senior police officers were on hand at the Eastern National Indoor Sports Stadium in Soi Chaiyapruek to ensure that the vaccination process was conducted in an orderly manner.
Only 20,000 doses of the CoronaVac vaccine from China’s Sinovac Biotech are available. They will be administered at four sites over two days for the elderly and those with high risk of contracting Covid-19.
Chonburi Province, as a whole, has been allocated 45,000 doses and will operate 29 vaccination centers.
In Pattaya, inoculations take place at Eastern National Indoor Sports Stadium, Bangkok Hospital Pattaya, Pattaya Hospital and the Pong Subdistrict office. Those eligible for the jabs are medical personnel, village health volunteers, and registered Banglamung District residents working in the hospitality and tourism industries who pre-registered with the government’s Mor Phrom mobile app.
Registration is open on the Mor Prom and Line apps. Individuals may seek assistance from Village Health Volunteers and hospitals with their medical records.
