Bang Sue Grand Station Central Vax Center Shuts Down


Central Vaccination Center at Bang Sue Grand Station Ends Operations

The Thai government has shuttered the Central Vaccination Center located at Bang Sue Grand Station on Friday, Sept. 30, more than a year since it opened to the public on May 24, 2021, according to a report by the National News Bureau of Thailand on Sunday.

The centre gave the last COVID-19 jabs to recipients before it was officially closed by Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Public Health Anutin Charnvirakul yesterday.

Since its inception, the Central Vaccination Center was able to administer 6.5 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines, providing service to about 3.5 million people. Medical personnel who worked at the centre will now return to their original placements.

Those who planned to get their COVID-19 vaccines from the centre can head to the Institute of Dermatology at Victory Monument and other free vaccination sites around the country.

This month, the institute will be offering free COVID-19 jabs on the 8th and 29th, from 9 AM to 3 PM. Free vaccines are also available in various health care facilities in Thailand and the public is encouraged to inquire at the facility nearest them.
