The target of 466,587 people in Phuket to be vaccinated has long been reported by officials as 70% of the island’s full population, which must be vaccinated in order to achieve herd immunity, and has been marked as a critical requirement for reopening the island to receiving foreign tourists on July 1.

The report for yesterday marked that 351,464 had received one vaccination injection and that 205,320 people in Phuket had received two vaccination injections.


Of note, after nearly a week of very low figures of people in Phuket registering to be vaccinated, the report for yesterday showed marked improvement over the past few days, with a total of 408,758 people now reported as having registered to receive a state-provided vaccination under the national mass-vaccination campaign.
