I’ve been mailing in my 90 day for 2 years now and no problems.  It’s easy going to the post office and avoiding the immigration lines and wait.  But I realize some don’t have 50 Baht for EMS and prefer seeing their 500 closest “friends” at immigration.

That is the nice thing, in Phuket:

They have an "drive thru" for 90 days!

This possibly started the rumours:

Outside CW Immigration office.
Nothing apparently to do with Immigration, it was the buildings owners that erected this sign.
Visitors to Immigration for extensions are only required to complete a screening form.

Thai Elite Visa apparently sent this to their members under the false impression it related to the Immigration office.

According to the CEO of Pfizer the vax and jabs are not effective https://www.facebook.com/SaraGonzalesTX/videos/691451045565843 = so immigration has done the proper thing in no mandating this

Pfizer has a medicine, now. Without a german developer in the revenues!

So what do you think, why they arguing that way?

Wow, way to distort the message by cutting out the context.

The two initial shots aren't enough for Omicron.  Clearly they were effective, but now there is a new variant out.  

 

I'm grateful for my two shots.  My entire unvaccinated Thai family, seven people in all, got Covid.  Grandparents both ended up in ICU.  I live in the same house and never caught it.
