Hundreds of people in Nadee sub-district have signed up for COVID-19 vaccination.
Health staff of Ban Nadee Hospital said hundreds of local residents already expressed their intention to be inoculated. The people are in the age ranges of 18-59 and 60 years old and over. The hospital will receive vaccination applications until Feb 24.
Health authorities in Samut Sakhon divided vaccine recipients into three groups: those younger than 18 years old, those aged 18-59 and those who are 60 years old and over.
Apart from medical personnel and government officials, the first lot of vaccine will be for people aged 18-59 with chronic illness because it is aimed at preventing death among infected people. About 10,000 people are in this group.
