A vaccine recipient shows off her queue ticket. Crowds were kept to a minimum as only people with a queue ticket were eligible for vaccination.

Residents on the outskirts of Pattaya were given their first doses of coronavirus vaccine over two days at the Pong Subdistrict office.

From 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., registered seniors and high-risk residents of Pong and Khao Maikaew filed into the multipurpose dome for jabs of the Chinese-made CoronaVac vaccine.



Sompol Jittireungkiat of the Banglamung Public Health Department said no problems were reported and the process was orderly, even though more people registered than there were vaccine doses available.

However, he said, only those who actually would get a jab were given queue tickets, so there was not a large crowd.

No one reported any side effects.

Anyone who missed out on the first round of vaccinations can try again in June.
