Moderna vaccination at private hospitals to cost 3,800 baht


The Private Hospital Association has set the median price for vaccination with the Moderna jab at 1,900 baht per dose or 3,800 baht for the full two-dose inoculation.

The price covers the vaccine, hospital service fees and insurance.

The vaccine will be purchased through the Government Pharmaceutical Organisation (GPO), with delivery expected around October. The price for the Moderna jab will be the same at all hospitals.

The Private Hospital Association has ordered 10 million doses of Moderna vaccine from the GPO. It expects the first batch of 4 million doses to arrive in October, followed by another 1 million doses at the beginning of 2022. The remaining 5 million doses will be shipped in batches later next year.

Thonburi Healthcare Group (THG) revealed it had received more than 800,000 applications for Moderna vaccination since registration opened at the beginning of this month.
