The Ministry of Public Health will next month be launching “Mor Prom,” a phone app that lets people book their Covid-19 vaccines.

“I would like all Thai people to download the application to reserve their Covid-19 vaccination,” Dr Kiattiphum Wongrajit said on Thursday.

“We need to create herd immunity to prevent another outbreak and revive our economy. To do so, we do need to get the vaccine to at least half of our population.”

The app, expected to launch on May 1, allows users to book their free jabs at some state hospitals and public health stations, from June.

It also includes a feature that enables post-vaccination monitoring to check for side effects.
