Elderly foreign expats now have an easier time getting vaccinated for Covid-19 with walk-in appointments at the Bang Sue Grand Station.
Foreign Ministry spokesman Tanee Sangrat said Sunday that walk-ins are open at the rail station’s Central Vaccination Center from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.
Those receiving vaccines must present their passports as well as proof of residence – a proper visa, permanent residence card or work permit – on the day of vaccination.
Walk-in vaccination is available everyday at Gate 2, 3 and 4. Note that Bang Sue Grand Station is also being used to vaccinate the general public. Covid-19 preventive measures should therefore be strictly observed while traveling to and at the vaccination site.
There is a daily capacity limit for walk-in vaccinations. However, vaccinations will be administered continuously throughout the day, therefore, those receiving vaccines can arrive at the site within opening hours as per their convenience.
This arrangement is reserved only for foreigners who have not yet received any shots of vaccines. Those who have already been inoculated with their first shots of vaccines must follow up with their second dose at the vaccination site where they originally received their first dose.
The system can detect and will reject those who have already received first doses. There is also currently no vaccine scheme for any booster or third shots available for the general public.
