It was not confirmed which vaccine way being made available to this group. is the designated site used for registration of vaccination in Phuket. Registration is open now although it was specified that it is only for Thai nationals who have received a first dose within Thailand and that it does not apply to anyone who received a vaccine overseas.

Registrations can be made directly via the site:

Christy Sweet, likely? It is/was just a idiot not100% working site as many foreigners experienced. That ExpatVac is also a very unstable thing. They simply launch crap sites, same as that 90 day unreliable cyber report thing.  They have no smart functional made sites. Few days ago they launched a driving license site,.." but we only write it in Thai". Thank you, International Phuket.

Kurt  the PMW site is likely not ever going to give you an appointment, we missed that boat- Have you registered on ExpatVac ? Beyond despicable  immigration  has any involvement in this process. Makes me want to lodge a formal complaint with.. well I guess the UN would be the correct authority.

@Maverick, OK so I know I understand - it’s only the whiners and complainers who have not been vaccinated. And to be honest, I am not surprised. They seem to be living in a different Thailand than the rest of us, one in which things never ever go right for them. A complete failure to adapt. Sad.

ematt 1: You don't know me. 2: You can check with immigration that there are many more. 3: Why you think France sent vaccines for all French nationals on Phuket, and now Germany is doing the same? 4: Did you not read comment here of mgb? There are many more of 'us, including people who not write comments in PN. 5: Your personal 'manage' remark is nonsense. Thailand not manage well....

I haven't gotten vaccinated either. I could not register at PhuketMustWin because of a TM-29 snafu I cannot rectify while  Immigration engages in holding  vaccinations hostage based on paper chase BS?  While I was able to register at the ExpatVac site, that seems to be going nowhere fast -  for anyone. I suspect it was purely a data mining operation.

Ematt@ to be fair I did meet another expat last week who is not jabbed but he’s a member of trump fan club so does not count I guess :-) we’ve been notified that our second jabs have just been moved forwards by 3 weeks 

ematt | 16 August 2021 - 11:37:38

Kurt you are literally the only expat I know who has not been vaccinated. You want to tell the entire country how to manage its affairs, and you cannot even manage your own.

meanwhile the Foreign Retiree That are living in Phuket and spending money are struggling to get the first Injection.  To say we are the type of tourist Phuket is trying to cultivate, it gives the opposite impression.

Mr Ed- why do you allow this troll to continually troll- just clickbait.

Kurt | 14 August 2021 - 18:08:17

Really? What a bunch of plain lies! I registered 2 months ago, and still get answer: "Fully booked". Who are they fooling?  Lying, lying. A perfect show of not trust Thai. They have no pride, no honesty, no sincerity. Lucky Thai abroad, all vaccinated like locals there because these foreign Governments did order vaccines in time, including for Thai 'guests'.

"It was not confirmed which vaccine way being made available..."
- Well it must be MODERNA !!! Right???

It shows on "Phuket Already LOST" app. 

Of course it's Xi Vaccine .. XinoCRAP or XinoGARBAGE?
