Eventually but apparently we're behind all Thais even if you're in high risk groups.   Such as:   Over 65   Comorbitities such as lung disease indicating asthma, diabetes

I'm not prepared to wait and find out. Fly back to UK tonight, vaccine booked for Saturday lunchtime.

All the way to the UK and you do not then drink a real beer!!!

Assuming foreigners are going to be behind all Thais in the queue, my big question is so when can we get it? Even this year?

Will be reentering with an extension of stay and a re entry permit. Both valid until late December. No issues returning for me in 1-3 months time.

What about special Covid requirements?

I had heard that you need to apply to the Thai embassy there and that reentry permits were not enough anymore.

Have a good trip man, you are right to take advantage of the circumstances to get vaccinated. 


For me staying in Pattaya I'm starting to freak out and envision an inglorious return to my Nakhon Sawan house.

Something else to consider for anyone flying back home for jabs

 

It's highly likely that booster jabs will be needed later perhaps annually to deal with mutations, etc. 

 

It's unknown at this point whether MIXING vaccine brands will be OK or not.

 

 

I normally travel back to the UK annually for a couple of weeks and always have a full check up with my doctor. Haven't been for 2 years due to Covid. I would welcome the booster.

Seems you are a man in full control of his destiny .

The world was made aware of covid 19 in early 2020 . A little over 12 months back in time .

good luck with the 100,000 US dollars of health insurance you will need before you can re enter.

I have heard that Thai nationals are in the front of the queue for the vaccine. That makes no sense in terms of the spread of the virus. The virus doesn't care what nationality you are, and putting any group ahead of another , unless it is based on risk category, puts the entire country at a greater risk. Getting the vaccine is not just about an individual becoming immune, it's about protecting the entire population from infection, by vaccinating at risk groups first, then working your way down the risk curve. What passport you hold is irrelevant to your risk category. 

 

Funny. You're not expecting logic and reason in Thailand, are you? It's Thais First, period, no matter what.

It works out cheaper for the Thais to be vaccinated first.  Foreigners pay for tests and treatment.  The Thai government pays for treatment of Thais.  Simple maths, lack of moral compass and greed really.
