A Covid-19 immunization facility has been established at the MBK Center in the heart of Bangkok.

On Friday, MBK Centre’s Zone D’s temporary vaccination facility, located on the sixth level, was formally launched by deputy governor Tavida Kamolvej.

According to Tavida, the Medical Service Department and Klang Hospital worked together to establish the unit. A free Moderna bivalent vaccination is available to everyone who walks in between 9am and 3pm every day. Candidates must be at least 12 years old, have received a Covid-19 infection more than three months ago, or have received a prior vaccination. Vaccination documentation is also required.

Passports must be presented in order for foreigners to receive a shot, but there may be a cost.Aside from the weekends of May 20–21 and May 27–28, the unit will be open every day until May 12.

In the city, there are now more than 1,000 daily Covid-19 patients, up from about 100 before Songkran, according to the vice governor.

“This is because people lowered their guard during celebrations by not wearing face masks in public places,” she claimed. The figure is comparable to the number of influenza cases over the summer, so it is not alarming.

She continued by saying that the majority of the new patients had little symptoms or none at all and could be treated as outpatients. However, there has only been a modest increase in hospital admissions—about 10 patients per day.

Separately, she added, there are worries that once the second semester of classes begin on May 16, a fresh wave of infections could start. As a result, Bangkok Governor Chadchart Sittipunt has ordered the establishment of vaccination units in handy places like shopping centers so that a larger population can receive booster shots.

These facilities will make vaccines available to foreign visitors in addition to reducing congestion in local public health facilities and hospitals.
