In Bangkok, Soon, A Thai Can Go To The Local Mall And Get A COVID-19 Vaccination

Soon, a Thai will be able to go shopping at the local mall in Bangkok and get a COVID-19 vaccination as well. Expats will hopefully be able to do the same.
Bangkok City Hall is soon going to have COVID-19 stations at the Bangkok mall near you. So far, they plan to have 25 of these stations.
On Saturday, May 8th, 2021, Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) and Bangkok Governor Aswin Kwarmuang met with Thai Chamber of Commerce reps to discuss how they will work together regarding vaccination distribution.
The chamber and BMA had worked out a deal to set up 14 vaccination stations outside hospitals.
SCG head office in Bang Sue, Central Plaza Ladprao, The Mall Bangkapi, Robinson Lat Krabang, Tesco Lotus Minburi, Samyan Mitrtown, True Digital Park, Thanya Park, Asiatique, Central Plaza Pinklao, Iconsiam, a PTT station on Rama II Road, The Mall Bangkae and Big C Bang Bon are the locations of the 14 vaccination stations.
After the chamber recommended 11 more sites, equipment is being prepared, and the BMA Health Department will check everything to make sure everything meets the standard requirements.
Each of the 25 vaccination sites will be able to inoculate 1,000 to 3,000 people a day, according to the BMA. With 25 vaccination sites, 38,000 to 50,000 people will be vaccinated a day.
Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha will open the system the following day. A demonstration of the system will take place at Central Plaza Ladprao on Tuesday, May 11th,2021.
The venue plans to inoculate 1,000 people a day, from 8 am to 5 pm. The targeted groups are medical frontline workers and people in at-risk occupations, such as garbage collectors in BMA’s 50 districts and teachers. The other vaccination venues will soon be open.
There are more than 160,000 teachers in Bangkok working in pre-school, primary, secondary, and vocational education levels. At Saturday’s meeting, participants decided to give priority to medical frontline staff, as well as teachers who interact closely with students.
The BMA indicates that high-risk groups with seven chronic diseases and the elderly will get shots after these groups get vaccinated.
The Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration reported 1,112 cases out of 2,419 new cases reported in Bangkok on Saturday, the highest of any province.
