    Vaccine for Foreigners 60+ in Pattaya

    Eligible groups of foreigners who live in Pattaya received Pfizer vaccines this week as a gradual rollout continues in the Chonburi province, although many continue to criticize the overall plan and speed. The vaccine campaign from August 24.2021 was conducted at Central Festival Pattaya Beach by the Bangkok Hospital Pattaya. This had taken place actively for over a week currently.TPN media notes the vaccination session was NOT a walk-in or open to everyone and still had strict conditions, primarily focusing on the elderly, vulnerable, and those with work permits. There is no “general” walk-in program currently for everyone, although officials state that those registering through expatvac will eventually get an appointment, without giving an exact date.

    There were more than 800 foreigners who have registered and received the Pfizer Covid -19 vaccine recently, according to organizers. This vaccine campaign is being conducted from Monday to Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm at Central Festival Pattaya Beach.

    Again, this is NOT A WALK-IN PROGRAM and only those pre-registered who have been contacted can get vaccine. You must register at one of the above options and get a mail before going.

    Nearly 70,000 foreigners register for vaccines on expatvac site

    According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, almost 70,000 expat and foreign residents have signed up for Covid-19 vaccines using the expatvac website. The website was created by the Foreign Affairs Ministry, along with the Ministry of Public Health, and open to the public on August 01. 2021

    The website was set up to help all the expats and foreigners that have been living in Thailand but have struggled to get access to vaccines. The expatvac site allowed foreigners of any age group and any location within Thailand to register to receive their vaccination.

    The director of the Health Hazard and Disease Control Division of the Ministry of Public Health has confirmed that they have set aside enough vaccines for every foreign resident who registered on the website. According to their data, as of Tuesday, 69,441 people had signed up to request Covid-19 vaccines, and so far 47,794 of those who signed up have received a vaccination appointment.

    One interesting statistic is that 55,560 of the applicants, equating to about 80%, are under the age of 60. Further, just 6% of those who signed up were afflicted with one of the 7 health conditions the Thai government has designated as high risk and most eligible for priority vaccination. Also, 337 pregnant women registered, 0.4% of all those who applied, as they are another demographic that receives vaccine priority.

    So far, the nationality with the most registered requests for vaccines is Filipinos with nearly 8,000 expats requesting inoculation. The ministries encourage any foreigner living in Thailand who have not yet been vaccinated to register on the expatvac website as this is the way to notify the government to earmark a vaccine for them.
