New rules set for hospitals offering vaccine booking


The Department of Health Service Support (HSS) announced this week that it has set five rules for private hospitals to follow when advertising vaccine registrations:

• The vaccine brand advertised must be registered and approved by the Thai Food and Drug Administration.

• Hospitals must first seek permission from HSS or provincial health offices before launching vaccine booking campaigns.

• If hospitals take money for advance booking but then cannot deliver the jabs, all booking fees must be returned to people.

• Jabs must be delivered during the period advertised.

• Every jab-booking advert must also include a line saying the government provides free Covid-19 vaccines to all Thais.
