Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

There is a possibility that Sinovac will be the 'only option' for the second shot, but we'll have to wait and see. Most of us are still waiting for the first one.

Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

A couple more of our elderly (70+) expat population have had their first shot of AZ this week at BS hospital, so things are happening but very very slowly.

Re: Computer Equipment coming to Thailand

@cjsiam - would seriously advise bringing as much computer equipment as you can to Thailand now as you can't buy much here anymore. What is left in terms of local stock is priced astronomically and there is now a thriving second-hand market for computer parts, some of which are selling for more than...

Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

Dozens is a little different to 40 million. I only know two that have come this year and both are very wealthy and have family and property here (certainly not the norm). Thailand is closed for your average Joe. Those with very deep pockets and a shitload of patience may be able to come though - but...

Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

Thailand is still effectively closed to foreigners ... unless they want to jump through all the very expensive hoops (which are still there regardless of inoculation status).

Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

Hospitals are cancelling appointments again. I'm on the BCCT list now but being under 50 probably won't be considered.

At this rate, it would be easier to catch covid and build up some natural immunity rather than wait for a non-existent vaccine in Thailand. :roll:

Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

I managed to fill in the BCCT form, but suspect I'll be bottom of the pile being the whippersnapper that I am!

Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

The local clinic is calling people in Suan Luang so they don't have to spend hours scanning 90 pages of Thai names! Had a quick glance and couldn't see any farangs on it - unless the names have been transliterated into Thai in which case farangs wouldn't be able to read them unless they're fluent in...

Re: Bangsaphan Coronavirus/Covid-19 updates

Got it - it blocks non-Thai IP addresses so need to turn off the VPN.

No point me looking as being under 50, my name wont be on it until 2022 some time ... maybe.

Re: Power/electric supply problems in Suan Luang

A related problem for Suan Luang is the quality of the internet connections which are still pretty much in the dark ages compared to more developed areas of Thailand. TOT has had the monopoly in this area for years and it shows. Their infrastructure is crumbling, speeds and service terrible, and cus...
