What plans have the Embassy made to innoculate British citizens living in Thailand? Will you be importing vaccines and arranging jabs? What is the timetable for this, and where and when can we register?

Not only where and when can we register, what locations will the vaccine be available? Under present restrictions, this could be difficult. I will add. If inoculations will NOT be made available to British citizens in Thailand, or any other expats anywhere, WHY NOT?

Why not ask the Consular officials directly?  Why ask on here?

How about due to the heading, it asks for question you would like to ask? Or does that not meet with your criteria?

Eh, cost of return flight and other expenses to report to the British Consul for a free jab. (Oh and don't forget to times that by 2) Verses a possibly free or very cheap inoculation in my village, I think that will be no contest.

 

And if they don't offer me a free or very cheap inoculation in my village, I'll probably not bother as the chances of me coming into contact with is virus are infinitesimally small anyway.

if you are resident in Thailand you are not a Resident of the UK and not paying the NHS, therefore no vaccination from the UK Government.

I don't think it is reasonable to expect the UK Government to provide or procure COVID vaccination protection for British citizens living in Thailand.This is a matter of personal responsibility.

 

I nevertheless believe it is very much the responsibility of the Consular Section to provide information and advice to British residents in Thailand on what steps can be taken when vaccine becomes available.In practice I suspect this will mainly involve advising which hospitals and clinics will provide vaccination support to expatriates.

 

At the moment the Embassy will have no more information than anyone else, and it may take several months for this to become available.So its pointless to bother them now.I have little doubt that when information  becomes available, it will be published on the Embassy website.

it is great to be able to ask the British Embassy a question on Thai Visa Forum.

 

I wanted to ask the same question about vaccines too.

 

This probably is not a consular issue but are there any plans for the British government via the British Embassy to offer a COVID-19 vaccine to brits in Thailand?

 

(i guess not but wanted to ask anyway)

I would assume that when a vaccine is actually available in Thailand, it will be your own responsibilty to arrange and pay for vaccinations, as you do for all your other medical treatment.
