At least one COVID-19 vaccination centre will be set up in every province in Thailand, to provide services at a cost, exclusively for foreign tourists on voluntary basis. This will not affect the vaccine supplies reserved for Thai citizens, according to Public Health Permanent Secretary Dr. Opart Karnkawinpong.

He said that foreign long-term stayers, members of the diplomatic corps and their families are eligible for free vaccination.

Vaccination services for foreign tourists were launched on January 18th at the Bang Rak medical centre and at the Institutes for Urban Disease Control and Prevention in Bangkok, Chiang Mai, Chon Buri and Songkhla provinces.

The services are also available for tourists at the Institute of Dermatology, Rajavithi, Lerdsin and Nopparat Rajathanee hospitals in Bangkok and at the Chiang Mai Neurological Hospital.

The vaccination fees are 800 baht for one dose of AstraZeneca vaccine and 1,000 baht for a Pfizer dose, plus a 380 baht service fee.
