Thank you for your email.
The nationwide rollout of vaccines in Thailand began on 7th June. The Thai government has said it will include all foreign residents, starting with those over the age of 60 or with the following health conditions:
Severe Chronic Respiratory Disease
Coronary Artery Disease
Chronic Kidney Disease (5th stage)
Cancer patients receiving chemotherapy
Obesity (over 100 kg or BMI greater than 35)
If you meet these criteria you can register for a vaccine via the Ministry of Public Health website https://thailandintervac.com/ (registration opens daily at noon – 3pm).
If you do not meet any of these criteria, you can register for a vaccine via https://thailandintervac.com/expatriates
We are aware that vaccine appointments are currently full; however, the Ministry Of Public Health advises that more appointments will become available as soon as possible.
The only vaccines that have been approved and procured for use in Thailand are AstraZeneca, Sinovac and Sinopharm. You may not be able to choose which you receive. You should contact the hospital or vaccination centre for more information if you have any concerns. The Thai government anticipates that Pfizer and Johnson & Johnson vaccines will be available by the end of the year.
The only vaccine centres currently available are Vimut, MedPark and PhayaThai2 hospitals, which are all in Bangkok. It is anticipated that more locations will be added in future.
As Provincial Offices manage the distribution of vaccines, some provinces may prioritise different groups or have different ways to register for a vaccine. You should check with your local provincial authority.
The Centre for COVID-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) also anticipates that vaccines will be available at private hospitals throughout the second phase of the vaccination rollout. They will provide more information when available.
We understand that the Government Pharmaceuticals Organization will place an order for 10 million doses of the Moderna vaccine on behalf of the Private Hospital Association. The first batch is expected to arrive in October and will cost 3800 baht for two doses. We will provide information about how to register for these vaccines when available.
