PHUKET:-- Foreigners living in Chalong will be freely vaccinated COVID-19 once the national government has approved which vaccines may be used in Thailand, Chalong Mayor Samran Jindaphon has announced.

 

Mayor Samran explained to The Phuket News today (Jan 18) that Chalong Municipality has already set aside a budget of B20 million to source a vaccine once they become available.

 

Chalong Municipality must acquire any COVID-19 vaccine from the Ministry of Public Health, Mayor Samran admitted.

Join the queue Mr Mayor, your Health Secretary left it too late to acquire enough vaccines and you'll be lucky to get any spare before 2022 unless you pay top dollar from one of the private hospitals that will be selling them once approved.

So an offer for a free vaccine, and still complaints.

Would this free offer compel all foreigners living in Phuket move to Chalong?

Does that mean vaccinated whether wanted or not?

Why on earth wouldn't you want to? My parents have had it in the UK and are very happy about it.

Maybe the pressure the central governments needs to vaccinate all in the country that wish to be vaccinated.  If there is a nominal cost then so be it, but at least it sounds like an area in Phuket is on the right track.  I know they want tourism back and want to ensure the arriving folks whether it be international or domestic tourists are provided a safe environment, well as safe as possible by ensuring the residents living in at least Chalong are vaccinated.  I lived there near Wat Chalong for a few years before moving to Rawaii, and then North to Udon before moving to where I am now in BKK.
