August vaccination plan: 80% of Bangkok residents; open to general public, expats

Sounds like a lot of wishful thinking. I’d love to see some regular reporting on the status of Bangkok vaccinations during the month of August to track the progress. I sincerely hope it is achieved, but I can’t help but have my doubts.

I think you have summed it up quite well and I am looking forward to hearing what statistics the government put out on 1st September to let the public know how close to their August targets they got. Of course the excuses for not reaching it will be amusing also.

The sooner full vaccination with high efficacy vaccines can be completed for 80% of the population, the sooner covid-19 can be keep under control. It is time to reach out to other developed nations with excess high efficacy vaccines and good tracking solutions for help. Pride doesn't save lives, sometimes it is good to be humble about our weaknesses. Hope the Thai Authorities can really get it right this time. We pray that the peoples' suffering will stop soon.

It's just fun with figures. Can't understand why he's holding back...probably needs an enema.

Can they open another website to register people that can't register on their vaccine websites. 

My wife (Thai) was registered for her Bangkok vaccine number 1 but they posponed her vaccine date in the beginning of July and she hasn't heard from them at all since and I am yet to be able to successfully register anywhere. I doubt we will be vaccinated in August or September or October.

If 70% vaccination hasn’t solved Phuket’s issue, then why will 70% of a single shot of Sinovac solve BKK and the other deep red provinces issues? Phuket is being locked down harder in recent days. They need to stop looking at infection rates in Phuket and look at hospitalisation and deaths. If these are low, then the vaccines are working and no need to lock the place down. 
 

If the approach hasn’t worked for Phuket then why do they think it will work for BKK and the other deep red provinces?

They would be better off getting 2 doses of anything into 85% of the population of red zones to get any sort of 'herd immunity'  The population is compliant,  only the supplies are limited. This half-assed 50% of one dose in  scattered other areas  is how variants arise.  Or... Shutting the entire  country down for 2 weeks would stop it cold.  Thailand should be a wealthy  nation, able  to provide adequate assistance  to each of its 40 million or so that would need it, too bad corruption has siphoned off the cash reserves.
