Pre-booked jabs only at Bang Sue Station, no walk-ins


The vaccination centre at Bang Sue Grand Station in Bangkok will open on Monday to people who have registered for a jab. No walk-in service will be available at the station, according to the Department of Medical Services (DMS).

Transport employees will be vaccinated at the station up until Sunday.

From Monday, up to 10,000 jabs per day will be administered to members of the public in two groups: 5,000 employees of organisations that have registered via public health officials, and 5,000 people who have registered via DTAC, AIS, TrueMove, and National Telecommunications mobile services.

The vaccination drive at the station is being led by the Institute of Dermatology and will run from June 7 to August 31, said DMS director-general Somsak Akksilp. The objective is to reduce congestion in Bangkok hospitals that provide vaccination services. A free air-conditioned shuttle bus service will run from three locations – Victory Monument, Bang Pho, and Central Ladprao – to the station from Monday.
