UPDATE: The Thaiger has been informed that registration is open for 5 days only @ 100 people a day only. We would also urge people to understand that these vaccines are not in the country at this time and that people may be asked to pre-pay for the service.

Following the decommissioning of the bug-ridden Thailandintervac.com website, expats in Thailand were left with no way of registering for Covid-19 vaccination. However, according to a Nation Thailand report, 2 Bangkok hospitals are now accepting direct registrations from certain priority groups of foreigners.

The Phyathai 2 and Samitivej Sukhumvit hospitals are open for registration and accepting applications from foreign residents over the age of 60 or who have underlying health conditions that put them at greater risk. The health conditions that qualify are severe chronic respiratory disease, coronary artery disease, stage 5 kidney disease, cancer patients receiving chemotherapy, cerebrovascular disease, diabetes, or obesity. Obesity is classed as weighing over 100 kilograms or having a BMI above 35.

To register at Phyathai 2 Hospital, qualifying foreign residents can complete the form HERE between 9am and midday daily, until July 16.

Registration at Samitivej Sukhumvit Hospital can be done by emailing info@samitivej.co.th or calling (02) 022 2222.

The hospitals will call successful applicants to fix an appointment date and time. More information is available by emailing the Department of Disease Control on oicddchotline@gmail.com or by calling (02) 590 3832 or (02) 590 3836.
