19 Feb 2021

Everybody in Thailand - Thais, and foreigners, including migrant workers - will have access to quality and safe Covid-19 vaccines, a government spokesperson said on Thursday. 

The assurance was given by assistant spokeswoman Apisamai Srirangson during the daily Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration briefing at Government House. 

Everyone would have access to vaccines in the country, including foreigners, she said. 

"Vaccinations will include expatriates and migrant workers. The government intends to offer equal protection," she said. 

Dr Apisamai said the first, limited vaccine delivery would be on Feb 24.

Later deliveries of vaccines, arriving in larger amounts, would reach workers in the service and tourism sectors. 

Inoculated people who need to travel abroad would be issued vaccination certificates. Dr Apisamai said this would include business people and students. 

Later, she said, the government would announce details of the Covid-19 vaccination.
