Foreigners over 75 get jab offer

Foreigners aged 75 and over residing in the country who have not yet had a Covid-19 vaccine can register for their shots through a walk-in process at the Central Vaccination Center at Bang Sue Grand Station.

Tanee Sangrat, the director-general of the Department of Information and spokesperson for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, yesterday said that elderly foreigners can do this between 9am-4pm any day of the week.

"Those receiving vaccines must present their passports as well as proof of residence, such as a visa, permanent residence card, or work permit on the day of vaccination," Mr Tanee said.

He said that walk-in vaccination is available everyday at gates 2, 3 and 4.

Mr Tanee said the station is also being used to vaccinate the general public.

He said that Covid-19 preventive measures should therefore be strictly observed while travelling to and from the vaccination site.

While there is a daily limit for walk-in vaccinations, he said that vaccinations will be administered continuously throughout the day, so those receiving vaccines can arrive at the site within opening hours as per their convenience.

Mr Tanee said that this arrangement is reserved only for foreigners who have not yet received any vaccine shots.
