The Phuket News reports that the director of the Phuket Town hospital said 200,000 doses will be provided from May 18 to 28 as the first injections of the vaccine. But he says the goal of 14,000 vaccinations per day is difficult for medical personnel.

He says the first AstraZeneca vaccine deployment in Phuket will begin early next month. Then, another mass vaccination window will start from June 15 for those who will receive their second dose of the Sinovac vaccine.

Officials say another vaccination center has been set up in the Central Phuket Floresta Mall on the bypass road, bringing the total number of centers to 6.

According to The Phuket News, the X-Terminal building at Phuket International Airport, Jungceylon Shopping Center in Patong, Angsana Laguna Phuket Resort in Cherng Talay, Phuket Orchid Resort in Karon and Indoor Sports Stadium in Saphan Hin are other locations designated for the program.

The director urges people to come prepared and on time with their ID cards, pen, short-sleeved shirts and cellphones showing the SMS appointment to help speed up vaccinations.

The Phuket Tourism Association said the number of people signing up for vaccines will increase to 300,000 over the next few days, reminding people to wait for 42 more days.

Today the public health department reported 3,394 new cases and 29 new deaths linked to Covid. Today, 1,498 cases come from Thai prisons. By removing the shameful inmate toll from the equation, the trend is still stable with around 2,000 to 2,500 new cases every day over the past 3 weeks across Thailand.
