Bang Sue vaccine centre to handle 10,000 walk-ins per day from June 1

The train station at Bang Sue in northern Bangkok will host a vaccination centre to inoculate around 10,000 walk-in patients per day from June 1, in one of the largest such centres around the capital, the Ministries of Transport and of Public Health said Monday.

The government has marked June 1 to start offering walk-in vaccines. The Bang Sue train station will serve as one of the capital’s largest venues under a deal between the Ministry of Transport and the Ministry of Public Health, which will provide the vaccines.

Before the walk-ins start, public transport workers such as train operators, bus, taxi, and motorcycle drivers will be able to receive vaccines from May 24.

The Ministry of Transport will provide public buses from Victory Monument, Mo Chit BTS station, and Chatuchak MRT station, to the Bang Sue venue. The station will provide walk-in vaccinations from 9 am to 8 pm, and the service will run to the end of the year.
