Free COVID booster shots on offer for all at Bang Sue vaccination centre
The Bang Sue vaccination centre is offering free booster shots of Pfizer and Moderna vaccines for Thais and non-Thais from Monday July 11th until end of this month.
Those interested in getting their third, fourth, fifth or sixth shot can make advance appointments, from tomorrow (Friday) at 9am, via the following channels:
On the day of the appointment, they must show their QR code/SMS/App “Vaccine Bang Sue” to the officials in order to facilitate the vaccination service.
Alternatively, they can enter Bang Sue grand station, via Gate No 2, every day from 9am to 4pm and go through the normal registration process. They will be required to show their ID cards. Non-Thais, who include migrant workers, are required to show their “CID” number, starting with 60-, which was used to register for the Mor Prom app, or their passport number with their previous vaccination record.
The third dose will be administered at least 90 days after the second dose. The fourth, fifth or sixth doses must be at least 120 days after the previous dose.
Those who receive boosters can choose half or full doses of vaccine.
The vaccination centre is also offering free first and second vaccine shots for children from 5 years old and adults who want the AstraZeneca or Sinovac vaccines.
According to the COVID-19 Information Centre, in Thailand, over 140 million doses of vaccines have been administered and 76.5% of the population are fully vaccinated with two doses. 43% have received booster shots. The Ministry of Public Health has been campaigning for fully-vaccinated people to receive booster shots, in light of the spread of the Omicron BA.4 and BA.5 sub-variants.
