The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) announced this morning (Monday) the postponement of inoculations for people who have registered via the Thai Ruam Jai website, scheduled for tomorrow (June 15th) onwards, at all 25 vaccination sites outside hospitals.

The BMA assured the public, however, that they will administer the vaccines as soon as they receive them from the government, and will notify recipients of the new appointments via text message.

82,851 people in Bangkok have been inoculated at 25 non-hospital vaccination sites since the beginning of the mass inoculations last Monday. 13,905 people were inoculated yesterday (June 12th).

The 25 vaccination sites affected are:

The University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce
The Street Ratchada
Central Ladprao
Siam Cement Group
Sripatum University
Central Festival Eastville
Thai PBS
Samyan Mitrtown
True Digital Park
Thanya Park
Central World
Siam Paragon
Lotus Rama 4
The Emporium
The Mall Bangkapi
Robinson Ladkrabang
Lotus Minburi
Big C Romklao
Central Pinklao
The Mall Bang Khae
Big C Bang Bon
PTT Station Rama 2

The BMA’s announcement followed postponement of appointments, scheduled between June 14th and 20th, by several hospitals over the weekend, citing insufficient vaccine allocations, as Thailand entered the second week of its planned mass inoculations.

Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul has denied that the ministry has anything to do with the postponement of vaccination appointments.
