The boat service along Khlong Saen Saep canal has been suspended during the weekend as more than 250 staff members will receive their second shots of Covid-19 vaccine.

Chavalit Metayaprapas, managing director of Family Transport Co, said the vaccination would help build up herd immunity and prevent the spread of Covid-19.

The boat services will resume on Monday, Thai media reported.

Earlier, the boat operator suspended the boat service along the canal on May 29-30 to allow employees to receive the first shot.
