People living in maximum and strict Covid-19 control zones can place bookings for inoculation with the Sinopharm Covid-19 vaccine through the Chulabhorn Royal Academy (CRA) from Sunday.

The academy said on Thursday that registration for Sinopharm vaccination would start at 8am on Sunday and it would initially accept 40,000 registrations.

The service was for people aged 18 years and over who lived in maximum and strict Covid-19 control zones, the academy said.

The zones cover Greater Bangkok (Bangkok city and Nakhon Pathom, Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani, Samut Prakan and Samut Sakhon provinces) and four southernmost provinces - Narathiwat, Pattani, Yala and Songkhla.

Since April 1, Greater Bangkok has logged 182,850 Covid-19 cases (excluding infected prison inmates), including 4,589 cases on Wednesday.

The four southern border provinces have recorded 20,166 cases, including 782 on Wednesday.

CRA said registration would be through https://sinopharm.cra.ac.th and the app CRA SINOP from 8am on Sunday. The app had yet to be approved for downloading through iOS and Android operating systems.

CRA set the price at 1,554 baht for two doses. Each registrant must show the ID card to book one vaccination right.
