This news story angers me. It ignores the basic problem that the online registration tool will not accept passport numbers.  It's OK to state happy good news for some but there needs to  be major emph

Do you really want to register if you cannot choose the brand of vaccine you receive when the time comes?

Harden up.       Or how about you get a pink ID card and learn some Thai language since you live here.   Then maybe you could translate their website for them.

No - Forget about all this register/app , BS. Just walk into a private hospital with cash an ask for what you want and when you want it.  End of Story

Not happening. Maybe later. No guarantees.

The app was over loaded and crashed. Wifey has been trying to use it and just got it working only to find out right now it's only for those over 60 or health care workers.

I tried to register using social security number and failed. The reason being that it requires some digits from the back of the ID card.

Same here.

I knew it wouldn't be too long before I read a post like this. Well here's the good news, no one has been 'blocked by design' at all. Those who took the trouble to read the whole article that was posted yesterday (Saturday) would have read this:

 

''What priority groups must do:

 

To get free a COVID-19 dose, they can register for vaccination from May 1 by contacting their hospital or village health volunteer. However, the government is encouraging people to register and make a vaccination appointment via LINE for greater convenience''.

 

So you don't HAVE to have a pink card at all. I have already been registered at our local clinic.

 

Vaccination booking opens in Thailand,

We registered with the local government official a few weeks ago. No confirmed date or type of vaccine. But they said it would be end of June or so.

No guarantees, but a 99% certainty!  Private hospitals will need to increase their revenue!

Did you miss the recent announcement that the government had decided they will not allow private hospitals to acquire their own vaccines?

 

An example in point. A private hospital in Pattaya stated they will have doses "later" (not defined) and it will be the unpopular not very effective Sinovac and MAYBE one other brand. I'm assuming probably Astra Zeneca.

Is there a local government official to do that in Pattaya?
