The vaccine passport is an official travel document for those already vaccinated who wish to travel to other countries, and between April 19 and Oct 16, a total of 31,340 people registered for the document, according to the Diseases Control Department.

The institute’s director, Kitpong Sunchatawirul, yesterday said that previously only a time-consuming walk-in service was available, so the institute decided to allow both applications and appointment reminders to be handled via the app between the hours of 9:30am and 3:30pm, Monday to Saturday, reports the Bangkok Post.

Walk-in services for vaccine passports are still available at 100 designated offices nationwide.

For Bangkok and its adjacent provinces, people can contact the Institute for Urban Disease Control and Prevention Prevention in Bangkok, the quarantine office at Suvarnabhumi Airport in Samut Prakan via the “porthealth_bbk@ddc.mail.go.th” email address, the Bamrasnaradura Infectious Diseases Institute, and the Communicable Diseases Division of the Department of Disease Control in Nonthaburi.

The vaccine passport service may also be expanded to university-affiliated hospitals, the Thai Red Cross Society and the Royal Thai Police in the future, Dr Kitpong said.

He added that all vaccine passport applications require an accompanying ID card or passport and national certificate of COVID-19 vaccination.

Meanwhile, deputy government spokeswoman Ratchada Dhnadirek said applications for the Digital Health Pass are also available on the Mor Prom app.

The Digital Health Pass is a system for issuing QR codes which show an individual’s vaccination status and RT-PCR test results if required by public services, restaurants and domestic flights, Ms Ratchada said.

 It's too  easy to get under  the sexpat's skin. Guilt, shame  or.. both?

Oh good. It looks like Christy Sweet has been vaccinated and can now go find another country to live in and complain about.

During the 'farang' Pfizer vaccination day' in Saphanhin indoor stadium I had to pass 3 computer table desks before getting a jab at another table. There should have been handed out vaccination books. Many vaccinated people just walked out without a single proof they got their 2nd jab. 

Kurt | 20 October 2021 - 09:28:08

Vaccine 'passports', are just Yellow Vaccination registration books, not passports. Should be in stock at desks of nurses who give you the vaccination. They can fill out/stamp yellow booklet if you not have one yet from home country with your younger years vaccinations. And there you go. This is the way  done in SMART countries. Fast, convenient, efficient. No unneeded bureaucracy

Apparently the assumption is everyone uses an internet  smart phone and everyone know how to  do 'apps' whatever those are. This Luddite got a 50 baht  certificate  from Thalang Hospital where I also got my walk in  vax. Leave it to Thaidom to make it as complicated as possible whenever they can. 

CaptainJack69 | 19 October 2021 - 13:01:27

@Fascinated. Thanks... but the issue is registering for the Mor Phrom App to GET a vaccine certificate. I have a "vaccination record" but there's no number on there that works.

TIT. Off to the hospital to attempt a 'walk-in' then.

CaptainJack69 | 18 October 2021 - 21:45:10

@Kurt. Maybe the location where you received your vaccination is a factor. I was jabbed at Laguna and told to go to Thalang hospital for the cert. That would be the nearest government hospital to Laguna. I'm guessing you were vaccinated at Vachira?

I wouldn't trust the yellow book. Countries demand specific information about your jab(s) that the yellow book might not include.

Fascinated | 18 October 2021 - 19:32:47

@Capt Jack- use the thirteen figure number on your vaccination certificate to register- it works.

Christy Sweet | 18 October 2021 - 18:31:48

Kurt please tell me did you need to register for that vaccine and on what  site please? 

Kurt | 18 October 2021 - 15:09:33

@CaptainJack69, I got a beautiful plastificated Pfizer vaccination 'diploma' at Mahogany Building, 200 meters from Vachira hospital, same side of the road. With stamps and all. This besides registering/stamping in my International yellow health vaccination book. If you have such book alread no need to apply for a thai book.

CaptainJack69 | 18 October 2021 - 13:54:07

It appears the Mor Phrom app is only available for holders of Thai ID cards, it wont accept passports.  I'm not going to risk gumming up the bureaucratic works by using my pink ID card, (especially since when I was vaccinated they refused to accept that card).

CaptainJack69 | 18 October 2021 - 13:34:00

I think these "yellow books" are traditional vaccination records recognized world-wide and not specifically pertaining to COVID. They should work but for a COVID "vaccination certificate" we are told to go to Thalang hospital.

Kurt | 18 October 2021 - 11:01:21

@JohnC.  There is 1 location in Phuket town that issue Thai Yellow Vaccination Books if you not have a international vaccination book. For info, call Vachira. That hospital did sign/stamp the 2 Pfizer vaccinations in my International yellow vaccination book.

Mj | 18 October 2021 - 10:48:08

if you are in Phuket you can go to Phuket Provincial Public Health Department on Narisson Road to get the Vaccination Passport (Yellow Book) They will issue it within a week

JohnC | 18 October 2021 - 10:12:38

[Walk-in services for vaccine passports are still available at 100 designated offices nationwide.]  Interesting statement. When I got my vaccines and Thai Covid certificate the lady running the show informed all of us that only 3 locations in Thailand can issue the vaccine passport, all in Bangkok. Where have 97 other locations suddenly came from?
