AIS connects network to 23 vaccination sites in Bangkok and the provinces Supporting full immunity for all Thai people

8th May 2021: A major public health sector plan to deal with the Covid-19 pandemic is vaccination for the general public, and particularly among risk groups such as the elderly and people with pre-existing conditions. These will start to be phased in soon alongside vaccination stations already established in hospitals. The private sector is fully joining in this effort. For instance, the Federation of the Thai Chambers of Commerce and many other organizations have established many vaccination sites both outside and inside hospitals to provide service to the public and reduce the burden on public health facilities.

One of the key factors for the success of this mission is a communications network to provide convenience in connecting to databases for medical teams to rapidly and efficiently verify people's registration data and vaccination history. Members of the public coming in for vaccination can use the network while they are waiting. AIS 5G is participating with various organizations on this task, to be ready to rapidly care for the public in any situation.

Wasit Wattanasap, AIS Senior Vice President Nationwide Operations and Support said, “We have recently started work on coordinating with many organizations who are opening as vaccination sites for the general public. We need to address the challenges of communicating and transmitting data concerning vaccination, which requires careful recording of details with maximum efficiency, including vaccination history of the first and second injections by doctors and nurses. This starts with the registration process, then weigh-in, blood pressure reading, screening, oral interview and observations after injection. All of this data must be clearly recorded at every stage for correct follow-up and storage of people’s vaccination history in the National Database. This includes expanding networks in the vicinity of hospitals nationwide, because communications networks are the vital heart of this critical mission. Medical teams have the end-goal of creating immunity among the public. Every member of the engineering team, and every AIS employee considers it their highest obligation to deliver the best possible quality network for this task, because vaccines are the answer for us to overcome this crisis.”

23 vaccination stations for the public are being installed with network by AIS in the first phase, and these comprise Central Ladprao, Central Pinklao, Central Westgate, Robinson Lifetsyle Lad Krabang, The Mall Bangkhae, The Mall Bangkapi, The Mall Ngamwongwan, Sam Yan Mitr Town, Asiatic The Riverfront, Big C Bangbon, and the PTT service station on the outbound lane of Rama 2 Road. There are also vaccination stations at Chulalongkorn University field hospital in Jamjuree 9 Building, and the Royal Thai Air Force vaccination station for government servants and members of the public in the Ronnakat Building of Navaminda Kasatriyadhiraj Royal Thai Air Force Academy.

Vaccination sites are also being established in Thailand and other regions. They comprise Chiang Mai Public Health Office (Promenade), Nakhon Ping School (Gym 2, 700th Anniversary Stadium), Nakhon Chiang Mai Hospital, Prasat Hospital, Suanprung Hospital, Songserm Sukhaphap Hospital (Mothers and Children), McCormick Hospital, Phra Chom Klao Hospital Phetchaburi, Ban Suan Municipal Conference Room and Chalerm Kiart Pavilion of Chonburi Hospital, and Queen Sirikit Hospital Sattahip.
