As of yesterday, British ex-pat and blogger Richard Barrow had mentioned a leak of personal information of Covid-19 vaccine registered applicants on thailandintervac.com. All of the personal details could also publicly access and be edited without logging in, according to his tweets.
Shortly after being notified, the authorities had taken down the website in the afternoon. The site has turned back on as of last night and opened for registration again.
The Office of International Cooperation, Department of Disease Control, and Ministry of Public Health had also provided an update with an apology to the blogger, reasoning that the website was in the process of developing and revising to support more registrations at the same time when the problem occurred.
