Phuket officials are keeping quiet on foreigners being able to register for the Covid-19 vaccine. 2 weeks prior the Thai Ministry of Foreign Affairs said that foreigners could register for a Covid-19 vaccine.
Earlier, Thaiger wrote that many (nationality not specified) who registered for a vaccine had their registration mysteriously canceled.
The “Phuket Must Win” portal has a “Vaccinations for expats or migrant workers” option, but whether it is also accepting unemployed, or retired people is unknown.
The Deputy Director-General of the Department, Natapanu Nopakun, of Information, said on May 21:
Foreigners will be able to register at the hospitals where you have your own health records by using their passport or social security number.
We practice what we preach. No one is safe in Thailand until everyone is safe, everyone is vaccinated.
Phuket officials have issued mercurial statements on expats being able to register for vaccines. At first, they announced that foreigners could register via the portal. They later said that only foreigners who had work permits could register.
In the meantime, foreigners wait with bated breath on whether or not they can get, or register for a vaccine in Phuket.
