Pattaya: Mass vaccination of 40,000 people at sports stadium to begin mid-May


Recommended Posts

    I'm for any vaccination program to FINALLY get up and running--even if I am not included.  The sooner it gets started, the better.

There's approximately 225 days left in 2021.   65% of the Thai population is approximately 45,500,000 people.   That's 202,222 people vaccinated a day, nation wide.     E

Mid-May. So a week from now. Yup, looks totally prepared and ready. Just missing everything, including jabs.

Yes, but no need to worry, it has been approved by China..........although I understand they are using Sinopharm for their own citizens......WHO has also approved Sinopharm, but not, as far as I can t

"It will cater to those who have already registered on the Mor Prom app and also those who have not."

No mention of us expats who've kept many businesses afloat at least for the past year.... considering the Mor Prom app allowed some of those with pink cards to register, only to be told later "sorry, no cigar, not for you" (unless that has changed once more... who can keep up?). Most of us would fall into the "those who have not" (because can not)... "My head is spinning" Covid symptom? No, just trying to follow government pronouncements...

Well you know the saying "<deleted>"  baffles brains. And there are certainly many baffled on this forum. As an ex fisherman I prefer the saying taken in "hook line and sinker "

@RobMuirRob, trying not to be negative at all but, I've just run this past the Mrs,  she asked me what vaccine is it ? I said I don't know & it wasn't stated but I suspected it would be the Sinovac jab, she basically told me they can shove it where the sun don't shine, I am prepared to wait for either Pfizer, Moderna or AstraZeneca & pay for us both, she is not from Chonburi but further along the coast where they do jewellery & fruit, so I don't know  if she's eligible here or not 😎 

 

Do you have a Mrs ? What does she say ?

Just a few months back many farang here confident of June jab.

Your figures dont lie unfortunately. 

 

Even if Thailand magically had 91, 000, 000 vaccines sitting in cool rooms all across the country, that's a queue/s of 45, 500, 000 million people, twice.

 

Even if buying / manufacturing the vaccine was not an issue, it's months and months just to get it into people's arms.

The thing about Pattaya is that no one is native to the province. When I'd lived there I think I'd met half dozen women that were from Chonburi.

 

 

So, do they vaccinate only the registered Thai's, or anyone who presents themselves with their Thai ID Card? 

 

If vaccinating anyone who presents, how do they know how many vaccines are required for Pattaya / Chonburi?

It doesn't matter bc no one is getting vaccined. Currently, Sinovac and AZ are trickling out to hot zones. Some healthcare workers are getting Sinovac. That's the story morning glory.

 

App says August.

 

 

Smoke and mirrors.

I know it's smoke and mirrors. 

 

Merely pointing out that to release a statement like, "40,000 Thai's in Pattaya will be vaccinated" means very little.

This month, I don't think they have much else to offer than Sinovac

It's going to be difficult to find 40,000 Thais willing to take Sinovac.  Lots of bad press on social media true or not.

Some countries do more than a million a day. Thailand could be easily jabed in 2 months, if it wouldn't be Thailand.

Well into 2021, we still have no idea of their vaccination program.

I tried a few times. But she wasn't up for it. Reckons it would hurt too much even with the KY.

Thailand needs to step up infrastructure and training to allow qualified pharmacists to vaccinate. Having large stand alone sites will be too slow. And what about rural areas? 

I came back to Canada end of March. The city and surround area I'm in, population about 1 million, has over 500 vaccination locations including local pharmacies, clinics, and one day popups at hot spot businesses like meat packing plants. Biggest clinic has a capacity of 6000/day. Some are walk up, most by appointment.

Remind me to not bother asking you an even slightly serious question if that's the best krap you can come up with, seriously dissapointed with your juvenile response.

Other than the USA which countries might that be?

You were the one who raised the choc topic. 

 

But ok, the Thais I know are worried about the vaccine, but are not refusing it. It has risks, but the risks are outweighed by the risks of not taking it is the general consensus.

 

The most vocal about it was talking about it causing cancer, etc while puffing away on a cigarette which I pointed out to him.

more jabs = less infections 

Does the vaccine only stop the receiver from getting bad reactions if they catch Covid, eg from a non-masker. It does not prevent you from catching it, and subsequently passing it on.

Hard to get numbers on such a scenario, but the vaccine appears to be very effective at preventing a person developing serious symptoms requiring hospitalization. It also has some benefit to preventing any infection and causing transmission, but less so.

Well it is mid May and nothing happening at the stadium. They are still working on the entrance road.

 

Probably still negotiating the price for setting up food stalls at the front of the stadium.   🤣

My main concern is are they giving out free doughnuts or not like in America?  I might lose interest without doughnuts....

 

Dunkin' or Krispy Kreme?

 Worse than that.  Multiple factions are probably duking it out over who gets the concession to do the sub-rentals.
