Samui Airport director Nutchayathorn Nutsudanijvipa, together with Koh Samui district officials, Koh Samui Tourism Promotion Association, Bangkok Hospital, Koh Samui Hospital, Ban Don Inter Hospital and Thai International Hospital held a meeting on vaccinating the people of Koh Samui.
Meanwhile, Bangkok Hospital Samui has sent a team of doctors and nurses to Samui Airport to vaccinate the first group of 48 airport employees.
The first group has now received two doses of the vaccines in order to prepare for the reopening of overseas flights as well as build up the confidence of passengers who fly into the airport as well as that of people living in the area.
Another 636 employees who work in Samui Airport are scheduled to receive their first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine from April 2-7. The airport expects that their employees will achieve 100 per cent vaccination -- both doses -- by early May.
