Coronavirus (Covid-19)

Vaccine certificates in the works for Thailand

With vaccination finally underway in Thailand, some uncertainty still exists regarding vaccine certificates and official paperwork after receiving your Covid-19 jabs. The Public Health Ministry says that they are waiting for the World Health Organisation to release a standardised format for a vaccine certificate before they start issuing them. That form is expected to be released in June according to the Health Ministry.

Travellers planning on getting their Covid-19 vaccine and then going abroad after will be issued an international health certificate, but are advised to register now for vaccination starting next month. On May 1 appointments are being taken via a new mobile app still in development. Alternatively, scheduling can be done via the Line app.

Aside from registering to get your first dosage, the mobile app should be able to remind users to get their second dose of the two-part vaccine, and also allow people to report any side effects after receiving the inoculation. The Health Ministry also reported that people without smartphones will be able to make appointments by contacting hospitals or healthcare clinics directly.

The plan is to provide recipients of both the first and second vaccine dose with a physical printed certificate along with a digital vaccination certificate. The hospital administering the vaccines should include the certificate, and it should also be available via the “Mor Prom” Line account. There are more than 12,000 hospitals and clinics all across Thailand registered to handle vaccinations.

Thailand has received 1 million Chinese Sinovac doses and 100,000 AstraZeneca doses as well. The majority of vaccines are planned to be manufactured domestically by Crown Property Bureau’s Siam Bioscience, scheduled to produce 61 million doses of AstraZeneca within Thailand and have them available by June.

    And what if you don’t want to get the ‘jab’ and you’re a Farang?
