Pattaya will place its mobile medical laboratory in the Nong Or temple on September 6 as the city restarts its public health services.
Mayor Poramet Ngampichet was on hand Aug. 30 when the mobile unit made its first call at Chaimongkol Temple in South Pattaya.
The outreach offered on-site blood tests, blood pressure checks, flu shots, x-rays and ultrasounds. People could also make appointments at Pattaya City Hospital for colonoscopies and physiotherapy sessions.
The health salon also offered holistic services, such as herbal foot baths, vision tests and free prescription glasses. People could also enroll in quit smoking classes and get information about Thailand’s universal health insurance scheme.
Even pet sterilizations and rabies shots were available and people could also browse job postings.
