The goal is to provide vaccination services to 1,000-2,000 people per day day from 9am to 4pm, he said. On Sunday, the system was tested by vaccinating groups at risks, such as health personnel and volunteers, with aftercare and symptoms observation.

He said all 25 Covid-19 vaccination service units outside hospitals were ready both in the service system and administration.

There is a service available to people to reserve for Covid-19 vaccination via the "Thai Ruam Jai" Bangkok vaccine registration system.

The Bangkok governor expects 70,000 people to be injected per day.

He urged people to come as per their appointment time and date as the system sends an SMS. He said if people come by appointment, everyone would be vaccinated.
