MoPH behind push for full vaccination of seniors to fight mortality crisis Over 60s can register for extra shots from Monday 12 July through mobile providers AIS, TRUE, dtac and NT – jabs start 16-31 July at Bang Sue Central Vaccination Center

11 July 2021: Dr Somsak Akksilp, Director-General of the Department of Medical Services of the Ministry of Public Health, said, “The pandemic crisis has become acute in Greater Bangkok as case numbers are rising. New measures and curfews have now been implemented in many areas to reduce the spread of infection. The most worrying statistic is that if the over-60s become infected, they have a significantly greater chance of mortality from Covid than other groups. For this reason, we are making every effort to secure vaccination for older people aged 60 and over and create immunity for this group.”

Bang Sue Central Vaccination Center is thus opening vaccination registrations for citizens aged 60 and over through the registration channels of AIS, TRUE, dtac and NT with the support of NBTC from 12 July 2021 from 09.00 onwards, for vaccination appointments running from 16-31 July 2021 at 09.00-17.00. The channels of each mobile provider comprise:

Those aged over 75 who are not convenient to register online can travel to receive vaccination at Bang Sue Central Vaccination Center Gate 1 every day from 09.00 t0 17.00 (no shots for accompanying family), from today until 18 July 2021. Persons aged under 75 must pre-register and receive confirmation of an appointment from any registration channel to receive service. People are requested to arrive at the appointed date and time to reduce overcrowding, infection risk and waiting times for vaccination, to make the operation as efficient as possible.
