Overseas and Overlooked, Americans in Thailand Seek Vaccines

"Although all Americans 16 and older in the U.S. are eligible to receive the vaccine, and about 44% of adults 18 and above in the U.S. are now fully vaccinated, some 9 million Americans live outside the U.S., and many are struggling to get a shot in their host countries."

"The call by American expatriates is becoming more urgent as more contagious and virulent variants of the coronavirus emerge."

"American Citizens Abroad, a nonpartisan nonprofit group based in Washington, D.C., wrote the State Department and Congress about vaccinating Americans overseas on April 12."
