French nationals living in Thailand, who are 55 and older, can now register for a Johnson & Johnson Covid-19 vaccine. The Embassy of France in Thailand has organised a vaccination campaign for French nationals, providing the single-dose Covid-19 vaccine for free. The costs are subsidised by the French government. The campaign starts today and will end next month.

Inoculations will be administered at 8 Bangkok Hospital locations including Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Hua Hin, Pattaya, Phuket, Khon Kaen, Koh Samui, and Udon Thani. French expats will need to show their passport or national identity card (CNI), even if it is expired. A copy of a passport or CNI will not be accepted.

Those who have received a Sinovac or AstraZeneca vaccine cannot receive the vaccine supplied by the French government.

Hospitals administering the Johnson & Johnson vaccine to French nationals under the programme include…

Bangkok Hospital Chiang Mai:

Bangkok Hospital Hua Hin:

Bangkok Hospital Khon Kaen:

Bangkok Hospital Pattaya:
