Yes, next time I have a spare US $305,000 sitting around that's just what I was planning to do with it . . .

Re: Annual Flu shot

I just came across this article in the New York Times which answers most of the questions regarding the flu shot including the prices. And a nasal mist for those afraid of needles. :oops: Interesting reading. Last year about 70,000 people over 65 yo died of the flu in the USA. Scary. https://www.nyt...

Re: Annual Flu shot

Btw, I received the shingrix vaccine a few weeks ago and it was very painful. My arm was sore for a few days and I had flu like symptoms. But I’m glad to have gotten it but not looking forward to the second shot in March. It must be that these "shots" affect people in different ways. I ha...

The 800,000 Baht is to be in your account for 3 months so, if that is the case, then best to do it well ahead of your visit or maybe that is what you meant?

Re: US Embassy Bangkok to stop issuing proof-of-income letters

I spoke with a friend today who went to Immigration in Jomtien and was informed that letters from US Embassy, issued prior to 1 January, will be honored for six months from day of issue.

Re: Annual Flu shot

My last flu shot, courtesy of the US Air Force was in November 1965 -- Not a good experience We have come a long way since 1965, 2lz2p! I didn't even feel the flu shot I recently had. :P But 80,000 deaths were reported in 2018 likely because the flu shots were not so effective. https://www.vox.com/...

Can he not just man up & cringe and look the other way like I do ? :D

No, he also doesn't want to get "sick" from the flu shot. :!:

Re: Time to Remember

Today is the 11th day of the 11th month. A day to commemorate the end of World War 1 at 11:00 am exactly one hundred years ago. I expect forefathers of some readers took part in that war, some paying the ultimate price . An accident of the times of their births and their professions meant that none...

Re: Annual Flu shot

I just got my annual flu shot at Bangkok Pattaya Hospital Clinic My thanks to puan for suggesting the B-P Clinic. I went this morning and received the flu shot in about 15 minutes. There were a number of younger Thais, maybe college students, in white shirts and black trousers, getting some sort of...
