VIPs slammed for jumping queues at vaccine centres


Thai social media has been buzzing this week with complaints and comments about VIPs skipping queues to get a Covid-19 jab first.

In fact, clips showing these “important persons” responding to questions like “why do you get the vaccine before us?” with a blank face are being widely shared.

Twitter user @kerncle posted a similar clip with the comment: “There’s a lot of VIPs showing up for shots. The general public has been queuing for three hours and it’s still not our turn, but they grab a VIP queue ticket and off they go.”

Another clip posted on Wednesday showed a VIP blatantly skipping the queue and the crowd applauding and shouting “super VIP”. This clip also went viral, sparking furious comments.

None of the posts indicated where the incidents took place.
