The service was announced through a notice posted yesterday (Dec 8).

The Moderna vaccine will be provided to people receiving their second or third vaccine injections only, the hospital said in its announcement.

The injections will be administered on Mondays only, with the number of people receiving injections limited to 100 each Monday, and the service to close at 1pm.

The injections will be provided at the Rak Chiva Building, the announcement said.

To receive a Moderna booster shot, people need to present their Thai ID card or passport, and evidence of all their previous vaccine injections, the hospital said.

Paper documents or presenting the vaccination information registered in the mor prom app will both be accepted.

People wanting to receive the Moderna vaccine as their third-dose booster jab must have had their second vaccine injection at least three months ago, the hospital noted.

So there are 3 Mondays left until.end of December!  That's 300 people! 'Wahoo Way to go phuket'!

Why on Mondays only? Why number of people limited to 100 only?  Is that the way to handle Covid-19 on tourist-Phuket? What nonsense handling is this? Open more vaccination sites if  Patong hospital is so very much limited in jab providing.

Patong Hospital should be put in jail - if possible. to offer 100 jabs on a walk-in basis when they know they will have many hundreds standing in line, show how incompetent the bosses at the hospital. They should lose their jobs.
