The first-dose SARS-CoV-2 vaccination rate within November, December, January and February were 57.99%, 72.15%, 79.91% and 81.28%, respectively. The second dose rate were 46.58% , 54.79%, 64.38% and 71.23%, respectively. The third dose rate were 0.45% , 0.91%, 5.48% and 11.42%, respectively. The vaccination rate among patients with mental illness were lower than in the general population in Thailand and in the same province. Patients with substance-related disorders had the lowest rate of the first dose vaccination compare with others. The village health volunteers and PCU officers were the mainly approachable registered way of vaccination, 85.4% and the community hospitals were the main stations of vaccination too. Mostly, the first and second doses were CoronaVac (62.4%) and ChAdOx1-S (67.9%). No serious adverse reactions and mortality were observed. Associated factors of the first and second doses vaccination rate were handicapped-scheme group, the negative attitudes toward SARS-CoV-2 vaccination and unaware or unconcerned in COVID-19 infection.
Conclusion: In many aspects, the SARS-CoV-2 vaccination rates among patients with mental illness were lower than general population. Patients with substance-related disorders had the lowest rate of the first dose vaccination.
