Covid-19 Vaccines for Elderly Foreigners at Bang Sue Station

Unvaccinated foreigners aged 75 and over residing in Thailand can register to get a Covid-19 shot at a walk-in vaccination center in Bang Sue Grand Station.

On Monday, Foreign Ministry spokesman Tanee Sangrat said elderly foreigners could register for inoculation from 09:00 a.m. to 04:00 p.m. any day of the week.

Mr. Tanee explained that people requesting the coronavirus vaccine must present their passports and proof of residence, such as a work permit, permanent residence card, or a visa.

He also said walk-in vaccination would be available at gates 2, 3 and 4, adding that the Bang Sue Grand Station was also being used to administer jabs to the general public.

Therefore, measures to control the spread of Covid-19 should be strictly observed and adhered to when traveling to and from the vaccination spot, Mr. Tanee went on.

Health officials set a daily limit for walk-in vaccinations, he stated.

However, the Covid-19 jabs would be delivered continuously throughout the day, and people booking shots can come to the site during service hours at their convenience.

Mr. Tanee emphasized that the arrangement is exclusive for foreigners who have not yet been vaccinated.

He explained that people who have already received the first dose of any Covid-19 vaccine should follow up and request the second dose in the same place where they received the first.

The registration system can detect and reject foreigners who have received their first shot, he added.

So far, no plan for vaccine boosters or third jabs for the general public has been confirmed either, Mr. Tanee stated.
