Booster Shots Begin at Bang Sue Grand

Covid-19 Coronavirus Booster Shots Jabs Bang Sue Grand Station Central Vaccination Center Thailand Bangkok

Bang Sue Grand Station’s Central Vaccination Center began administering booster shots en masse to those who got their first doses there.

January appointment dates disappeared within hours last week when mobile operators began accepting reservations for the third jabs, with those vaccinated overseas or not at a government center rejected for boosters.

CVC staff and volunteers on Monday worked to prevent crowding and facilitate convenience for patients.

Staff members from each mobile network provider were facilitating convenience to people arriving for their booster dose appointment at the Central Vaccination Center. People receiving shots were given a detailed explanation of the steps, from filling out the consent form to the injection process and post-injection waiting period.

Vaccine recipients said the registration was not difficult but said appointment slots allocated via the mobile network providers filled up quickly.

They said service was decent and similar to their previous experience at the Central Vaccination Center when they received their second dose. The recipients said they were concerned to a degree over the spread of the Omicron coronavirus variant, but did not think they would develop severe symptoms if they contract the virus after having received the booster shot.=

Those who would like to receive their booster shot at Bangsue Grand Station may register at the website of their mobile network provider – AIS, Dtac, NT, and True. 15,000 appointment slots are available for each calendar day through April 8.

The registrant must have received their second Covid vaccine shot at least three months prior. No walk-in service is being provided.

Pheu Thai Party spokesperson Theerarat Samrejvanich has called on the government to quickly procure Covid-19 vaccine doses for children under 12, and to increase healthcare facilities that would accommodate Covid patients who are unable to get a place of treatment.

The government plans to vaccinate children ages 5-11 starting in February, using the Pfizer vaccine.
