Hospitals restrict vaccine registration amid supply concerns

The Chulabhorn Royal Academy (CRA) and several private hospitals were closing their registration procedures for vaccination against the Covid-19 virus on Monday.

The Center for Covid-19 Situation Administration (CCSA) last week asked people to “slow down” their vaccine registration via the Mor Phrom Application due to limited supply of vaccines.

The locally produced AstraZeneca vaccine will reportedly not be delivered in June as scheduled.

The CRA announced online that their registration has reached capacity, and it will not be registering any new patients to ensure vaccines are allocated to those who have registered.

CRA announced last week that it will be responsible for importing at least 1 million Sinopharm vaccines.

MedPark Hospital, a newly opened private hospital, also said it has reached full capacity for their vaccine registration and needs to ensure enough shots are available.

Phaya Thai hospital stated that it will be unable to provide vaccine registration as the CCSA announced to restrict registrations via the Mhor Phrom application to allow people to register via the Thai Ruam Jai website, which opened last week for peoples ages 18-59.

Bangkok Hospital stated this month that is has not opened any vaccine registration, but will notify the public when one becomes be available.
