Health officials have said that 20,000 people in Prachuap Khiri Khan will receive a COVID-19 vaccination this week.

Starting Monday (Aug 16), 20,000 doses of the Sinovac vaccine will be given to people who registered using the Mor Prom registration system.

Those who receive the vaccine will be aged over 60, pregnant women and people with underlying health conditions who have not received a COVID-19 vaccine previously, health officials said.

The vaccines will be administered at government hospitals in each of the eight districts in Prachuap Khiri Khan.

Those due to receive the vaccine should already have been informed of their appointment date and time.

In addition, health officials have announced that some walk in vaccinations will be available to those aged over 60, pregnant women and people with underlying health conditions.

Walk in appointments are for Thai nationals who are registered as living in Prachuap Khiri Khan and who have not already registered to receive the vaccine on Mor Prom or Mor Prachuap Prom system.

The walk in appointments are available in the afternoons on the day when the vaccination service is operating.

Health officials did not specify how many vaccination doses would be made available for ‘walk in’ appointments.

The news comes as health officials last week said they would accelerate the rollout of the vaccine to people in Prachuap Khiri Khan.

While around 178,000 people in Prachuap Khiri Khan have received a vaccine dose, only around 54,000 people have received two vaccine doses.
