According to the departments, foreigners over 75 who have not received a jab can walk in for vaccinations from 9am–4pm at Gates 2, 3 and 4.

They must present their passport and proof of residence, such as a visa or a work permit.

Meanwhile, for those aged 60–74 residing in Bangkok and five neighbouring provinces (Nakhon Pathom, Nonthaburi, Pathum Thani, Samut Prakan and Samut Sakhon), and who have never received a vaccine, pre-registration is required via https://forms.gle/ULAqvx8eiDoX3v5Q9
