Recommended Vaccines
Covid 19 Vaccine

We receive many questions on the availability of the COVID 19 vaccines in Thailand. Unfortunately, there are no clear answers yet. We have to wait for the FDA approvals and guidelines of the Ministry of Public Health first. The internationally available vaccines are not approved yet and we still await guidelines and policies regarding distribution. We expect the MoPH will set priorities soon and roll it out in stages. We will keep members updated.
