BANGKOK (NNT) - The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) and the Board of Trade are aiming to open 25 COVID-19 vaccination stations by the end of May.

 

Bangkok Governor Aswin Kwanmuang said the BMA has opened three so far, at Central Plaza Lad Phrao, The Mall Bang Kapi and Samyan Mitrtown. Officials are now preparing other locations in Bangkok, which will be able to inoculate 38,000-50,000 people per day. The vaccination points will operate for seven months, in a bid to build herd immunity.

 

The jabs are currently being administered to registered medical staff and frontline workers, such as teachers, bus drivers, garbage collectors, delivery and daycare center staff, before being rolled out to the general public starting in June.

 

The BMA also advised people to register via the Mor Phrom (Doctors Ready) application and prepare their ID card before entering the vaccination station. If they don’t have the app, medical staff will conduct the medical follow-up.

How about the rest of Thailand, where the vast majority of people live? Like about 80%.

Well as always those in government and their puppet masters don't give two hoots about them.  It used to be they were needed as poorly paid workers to help build the empires of the connected few. Now with the RTA's developed skill sets, illegals from Cambodia and Myanmar can easily supply adequate labour numbers and at a next to nothing wage also. Plus they can't complain because they are illegal.

Why does everything take so long? Surely it should only take a couple of days to set up, Thailand has the trained people, where is the vaccine?

I expect they "do not" have enough trained people.....and also don't have enough people "willing" (trained or  untrained) to work in a vaccination center.   Top it off with not enough vaccine supply and all you have is a grandiose plan.

All the staff earmarked to open 800 stations to vaccinate people all around Thailand have been ready for nearly 2 months now.& are getting disallusioned waiting.

The local manufacturer has let them down.

They should be rolling out 500,000 doses a day

This is a BMA announcement, not a Thai government announcement. The BMA 's responsibility is Bangkok, no surprises there. I've seen similar announcements from provincial governments, most recently from Phuket and Chiang Mai.

Bangkok is worse than New York in self absorption & nothing exists outside of that bubble

There's that magic word again : "Aims"

 

Not Wills, Not Commits, Not agrees, Not Orders, ......but Aims. 

 

Come on BMA.....   All the taxes that town pays, we can't have it at BTS/MRT, Tesco Lotus or Big C parking lots? 

 

How about the Stadium, shopping malls or the thousands of businesses that are permanently closed. 

 

Pick up the Phone, Call the US and UK embassies and get the vaccine.  

 

Sure, you might owe them a favor..... but you will have saved millions and stopped the disease in your City!
