Free Covid booster shots pondered for tourism arrivals

Struggling to get a Covid booster shot because of the incompetence of government in places like Australia?

Consider travelling to somewhere like Thailand, where visitors could soon be offered free booster shots on arrival.

The Thai Tourism and Sports Ministry hopes to offerbooster shots to tourists and Thai tourism workers in preparation for the return of Chinese travellers. Tourism and Sports Minister Phiphat Ratchakitprakarn told the Bangkok Post.

"It will create a good image for Thailand as we are ranked among the top nations for healthcare security," he said.

Phiphat said the Tourism and Sports Ministry would work with the Tourism Authority of Thailand and the Public Health Ministry to explore the feasibility of the idea.

If the government approves the scheme, it should allocate funds to the Public Health Ministry to purchase vaccines, he said.
