My results are the same as you in Pattaya. I have registered with two hospitals, when I asked them for a time frame they laughed. I spent nearly all day at the Bangkok Pattaya Hospital yesterday as my wife was having tests done so I enquired again, seeing how the government has stated we are eligible to book starting Monday. I was told they have no plans yet for foreigners.
The website we were directed to by the government states it is for diplomatic people only. The Thai app we were told to use as far as I know was cancelled.

They are vaccinating locals not far from me at a sports stadium and yesterday at the BPH in the carpark they set up an outdoor facility to vaccinate selected locals, hospital staff and some other categories. No foreigners yet but I am taking it as a sign that they are getting ready for us as that was not there last week.

I do know of someone in Bangkok who has made an appointment at the start of July for the Astrazenrca Jab, confirmed and the rumour that some hospital in Udon Thani is also taking bookings. Still lots of confusion from day to day in the English speaking press coming from the government. Earlier they said private hospitals could not use any vaccine that was in use by the government, they were obtaining Moderna for them at 3000 baht for two jabs including insurance. But that seems to have changed again.

Here is a copy of a message I got from a friend vin Bangkok, may be of some use if you are based there.

“Phyathai 2 Hospital, it has a Vaccine Reg. Booth inside Building B. Farangs can register, as well as Thais. Just did. Got July 5. Should be AZ. Price not mentioned. Seemed churlish to ask”.

I am hoping Monday brings some news and progress.

If can choose what vaccine then that would be good, if there is no choices, then should take what comes available first that are approved by WHO. The India variant is highly contagious & deathly. Most effective vaccine is the 1st vaccine anyone can get hold off.

In Chiangmai we have registered with this initiative:
https://www.cm-healthcare.net/CMCVR/
and received confirmation we are in the first batch of about 1400 people.
This initiative seems unique to Chiangmai and is supported by the British Pro Consul, the governor and the health services.

There is no date however and of the 600,000 promised Astra Zeneca vaccines only 3600 got here at the beginning of the month; this has also been the case in many other provinces.

I also registered on a list with the designated private hospital; they said "in 3 months, cost about 4000THB" but seemed very unsure about it.

Hi Ward, I am no longer in Thailand but recommend that you try to get whatever they jab ASAP, then when Moderna comes later in the year at private hospital get that then.

The Moderna vaccine wont do you any good if you pass up on a Sinovac and get Covid before December.

As you know vaccines from Govt are scarce now and there's that "thai first" policy (nonsense). I may be able to get it through my employer channel, hopefully soon. It's one of the Chinese vaccines, which are not my first choice but if they confirm that, I'll get it right away.

I have paid the money at the Pattaya Memorial. I will however take a vaccine from another hospital if it gets here first.

A friend informs me he has two expat friends in Bangkok who today got their first Astrazeneca shot. Both worked here for years paying tax, have Thai tax numbers and have retired. Both over 60. Hospital was Phayatai Hospital Bangkok. They registered a week or two ago at the hospital.

Not good news about vaccines here.i payed 2000 deposit. Now I'm told the order for moderna has been halved.its a shambles.i can't see the moderna here until end of year at the earliest.we may have no choice but to take sinopharm even though we can't travel to certain countries as the Chinese vaccines are not on the list of many countries for entry to.canada been one.there was also a mention that 2 million of said moderna delivery would go to Thai red cross.im not sure for whom the vaccines would be distributed to ie HIV patients etc.i know this is a worldwide problem and maybe you are right we may have to take what we can get.and top up later.?

I flew back to my country of origin; I will get Moderna this Monday.

I am not impatient by nature, I have been living in Thailand for 26 years, 24 with HIV and on meds.

My boyfriend's parents got vaccinated on day 1 at the local hospital, my boyfriend's vaccination day has been canceled, and I was on waiting list until nobody knows when.

Good Luck everyone.

Woke up this morning a 6am, received an email from the Bangkok Pattaya Hospital saying they were accepting registrations for Moderna. Tried to register online, all sold out. At lunchtime they announced on their Facebook page confirming it was all booked. Delivery would have been between October and January. Not a good performance.

From what I have read some expats in Bangkok and Phuket who qualify through age are getting Astrazeneca.

I know this really doesn't help much but Pfizer, Moderna, and J&J are widely availiable in California ( and I assume all other US States).  Just walk into CVS, Wallgreens, or get an appointment with County Health and get the jab.    Just ID required (not always).  Passport counts.  Free doesnt matter if legal US resident, foreigner, undocumented, etc. 

Also because of the vaccinations, everything here is open now.

So not a bad time to take a vacation here if willing to do the Thai Phuket Sandbox or ASQ.   Lot of hoops to jump through.
