Registered 2 weeks ago for my vaccine in Soi Dao, Chantaburi. Today was the day; ID card, yellow house book, passport, BP taken, forms filled in, #3 in queue. Got to nurse at vax desk, she made a phone call. "No vaccine for me, because I'm a foreigner"! Wasted 2 hours plus felt like I'd been spat on!
My wife and family are fuming. At least they understand now why we despise these corrupt, dumb sycophants.
Part of the problem in Thailand is many people (not all) believe Buddha will protect them so when they ride past a temple or holy place , just three beeps on their motorbikes horn will save them so they do not need to bother wearing crash helmets.
