Administration of third and booster doses of Covid-19 vaccines start today Bang Sue Grand Station at 11 a.m.
Dr. Mingkwan Wichaidit, director of the Bang Sue vaccination center, said the booster shot would initially be for 150,000 people who had received two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine made by China’s Sinovac Biotech between March and May.
They were among the 550,000 people who had received two doses of the Sinovac vaccine.
From Sept. 24-26, the vaccination center will inject the third shot for 15,000 people a day and later the number of recipients will be 10,000 a day. The injection for the 150,000 people will finish on Oct 13.
Later the center will give the third dose to the people who had not been vaccinated at the Bang Sue Grand Station, at the rate of 2,000 people a day.
The people will receive short messages via mobile phone before Sept. 30, inviting them to receive the booster jab. If they do not receive the message this month, they can register for the booster shot via the Vaccine Bang Sue app.
The Bang Sue Grand Station finished the inoculation of the first jab today Sept. 23 and later would inject only the second and third doses, Mingkwan said.
