Pattaya’s big vaccination day came to a head after no vaccines were available


Must read

Vaccination day in Pattaya had completely gone wrong because there were NO vaccines.

Pattaya Mayor Sonthaya Kunplome and his retinue had gone to the city hospital in Soi Buakhao to inform the angry crowd that the promised Covid-19 vaccines were not available.

The disappointed, often angry residents of Pattaya expressed their dismay after arriving at the city hospital for their Covid 19 vaccinations, only to be told there were no vaccines.

Mayor Sonthaya Kunplome had gone to the hospital’s Soi Buakhao facility with his advisers to observe that the first doses of AstraZeneca vaccine and second doses of Sinovac shots would be delivered.

But those who registered online four to six weeks ago and showed up at their appointed time were told there would be no vaccine that day or possibly every day in July.

“We just don’t have the vaccines. The government has not sent them to us,” a hospital official announced and we are not expecting them this month either. Pattaya City Hall will call you.’

The government promises everything and does not whistle, grumbled a resident of Pattaya who walked away empty-handed. “So all the talk on TV is bullshit

“They don’t even have the decency to tell us in advance,” said another person who made the trip to central Pattaya. “I checked my registration on Mor Phrom every day, looking for any changes or postponements, but nothing was mentioned.

“We are deeply disappointed in the authorities and no longer trust them.”

Others at the hospital said the government’s plan to open the country without restrictions to fully vaccinated foreign tourists in mid-October was “a big joke.”

Meanwhile, the star Pattaya continues to take registrations for AstraZeneca, Sinovac and Sinopharm vaccinations but has no data available on which the shots can actually be administered.

“If this is the real situation, Thais and foreigners alike should really be afraid of contracting Covid-19.”

Not everyone left without an inoculation though, the city of Pattaya did vaccinate vendors in the Amorn, Naklua New and Lan Po markets who showed up for vaccinations after their workplaces were closed for three days following coronavirus outbreaks.
