Check in desks  at Suvarnabhumi Airport are being used as vaccination screening points as part of the effort to inoculate people in Bangkok.

 

A total of 42 check in desks on the 4th floor  of the departure hall are currently being used as service points for people due to receive the vaccination.

 

These include front line workers and employees of Airports of Thailand and other staff who work at Suvarnabhumi.

 

The check in desks are being operated by staff  from  Bangplee Hospital and Samitivej Srinakarin Hospital, as well  as from other agencies, Daily News reported. 

 

At the check in desks, people due to receive the vaccine have their temperature and blood pressure taken before their information is formally entered into the registration system. The person is then given an appointment card to receive their vaccination.

 

Kittipong Kittikajorn who helps to oversee operations at the airport said this will help to accelerate rollout of the vaccine, which is important to help build confidence among passengers.

How come Airports of Thailand staff get their vaccinations ahead of those who are vulnerable and the elderly!  Airport staff can by no stretch of the imagination be regarded as a priority!

 

There are still many medical staff outside Bangkok, who have no idea when they are going to receive their vaccination! 

 

They need shots because there are 70 million tourists waiting to get into Thailand for a holiday.

i would assume that because the government is bringing in possible virus into airport  that they want to protect airport personnel ..
