Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Site launched for June 14 vaccine signup for all foreigners

The latest update on Thailand’s Covid-19 vaccine registration plans indicates that all foreigners can sign up online from June 14. The Thailand Intervac website seems to be constantly evolving and was first opened for diplomats on a specific URL and then for general foreigner signups on the main site, though hiccups and problems are often reported.

The main site was quickly revised to be for expats over 60 years old, or those with one of 7 underlying health conditions designated as high-risk for Covid-19. But now a new page has been added for all foreigners to sign up.

Starting June 14, foreigners can go to ThailandIntervac.com/expatriates and register for a vaccine appointment. The registration on the main site is from noon to 3 pm, but this page is from 2 pm to 6 pm.

The website advises people can register there for the Sinovac or AstraZeneca vaccine and suggests those who sign up can reconfirm their appointment at the hospital they registered with. No walk-in registration will be accepted at vaccination sites. Foreigners are also instructed to register 2 weeks in advance of their desired date for getting vaccinated.

Though the site is intended to be national, the hospitals listed so far have been almost all in Bangkok, with an occasional appearance for a facility in the Pattaya area. The website should be launching a list of hospitals around the nation soon. The government had advised every province to create their own platform and system for registering vaccine appointments. Several, especially provinces with large expat populations, are expected to create their own vaccine registration system for foreigners as well.

    Hahahaha, foreigners in Thailand will still be waiting to get vaccinated next January.

    Meanwhile, here in the U.S., I can walk into any drugstore or Walmart (and a thousand other places) and get a free vaccination. In and out in under 20 minutes with no appointment required. And 15 minutes of the 20 minutes is while you sit there so they can make sure you don’t have any adverse effects.

    Haven’t had a vaccination, never will, but it’s here in the U.S. for anyone that wants one. Free and with zero hassle.

    Well done Thailand 🙂

    Which is why many in the rest of the world can’t.

    In the eyes of the rest of the world, being selfish and boasting about it isn’t something to be proud of.

    Well done America.

    Tried multiple times EVERY DAY on both sites. Used two different emails. Always blocked after registration with Information Incomplete message. (I have completed it and some info disappears from the site)
    I am over 70 and need to get this vaccine. No help available. Visited 4 hospitals, they point me back to the site or just shrug their shoulders

    I am over 60 with health issues and have not been able get an appointment. Those over 60 were to be inoculated first, but even though they have not been able to secure an appointment, now I have to struggle against everyone to get an appointment. This is so screwed up! Covid will probably kill me before I receive a vaccination!

    @Simon Small – you are really a Clown and childish one. Thailand didn’t order Vaccines in time and also didn’t take part in the covax program, so it is their own decisions. This shows very clearly your mindset and always blame others for the own complete failure! Clowns advocat clowns and clowns defend the undefendable!

    You really are a one-trick pony, aren’t you? To you, it’s logical to not vaccinate your own population first (the purpose of every nation-state is to protect its own existence first) but rather spray vaccines around the world.

    Biden’s administration is donating 500 million vaccines around the world. The UK has promised 100 million (surplus) vaccines, but only 30 million this year.

    Rather than tossing your supercilious arrows at the Yanks, you might actually thank them.

    “Thailand didn’t order Vaccines in time and also didn’t take part in the covax program, so it is their own decisions.”

    OF COURSE IT IS!

    Which is why I’ve repeatedly described those “decisions” as “appallingly bad … incompetent … inept … possibly corrupt … a shambles … inexcusable …” etc, etc.

    If you think that’s “defending” anyone you must be even more stupid than I thought, and that’s very unlikely.

    @Mister Stretch – and USA gave 30 million us dollars extra for the vaccination in Thailand and it was Thailands gambling and incompetence of the actual situation ( not part of the covax program, not order in time diferrent vaccines etc). Simon smalls comments are absolut absurd.

    “To you, it’s logical to not vaccinate your own population first (the purpose of every nation-state is to protect its own existence first) but rather spray vaccines around the world.”

    See above to @Stardust, @Mr S.

    No, to me while it’s the DUTY (not the “purpose”) of “every nation-state to protect its own existence first” it’s also their responsibility to do so without harming others unnecessarily just because they can, and the US (and others, from the UK to China) have failed dismally in that regard for a long time.

    “Biden’s administration is donating 500 million vaccines around the world”

    Over an extended period!

    Changing a leader doesn’t change a country’s mindset or actions, and Trump still had more votes in the last election than any previous president has had.

    “The UK has promised 100 million (surplus) vaccines, but only 30 million this year.”

    How much of a “surplus” does the UK need? The UK has SIX TIMES as many vaccines as it needs in stock and on order, and it still hasn’t given away a single dose.

    That may not suit your agenda, but the facts seldom do for some people.

    @Simon Small –

    At it again I see, it the fault of other countries and not the one you have temporary residency in.

    In the UK we have a surplus of vaccines on order but not yet in existence, we have a precarious supply line over the next few months but will eventually have a surplus which we will donate to backward countries like Thailand.

    But we in the West and China did create the vaccines in the first place, without us you would not have a single vaccine to use.

    In Thailand you can not even create a simple national mobile/online app to book appointments with, ‘piss up in a brewery comes to mind’.

    We could write one for Thailand if they asked.

    Just admit Thailand is a mess when it comes to organising anything, just realise it is a great place for a holiday, why do you think so many Thais emigrate to the UK/Australia/NZ/USA etc?

    @Mister Stretch – 500 millions of vials… that is around 5 billions single doses, for 2.5 billions people.
