Until July 2021 the situation in Thailand has only escalated with new daily cases being over 10,000 and is predicted to increase every day.Contrastingly, vaccines needto be imported to Thailand,causing multiple shortages and delaying the vaccination further. The aim of this research is to investigate the relationship between the number of people who have immunity against the coronavirus SARSâ€CoVâ€2 and achieving herd immunity in Bangkok and vicinities areas of Thailand. The research question of this investigation is How is herd immunity in Thailand affected by the number of people who have had immunity against COVID-19 (either by vaccinated or has been infected by the coronavirus SARSâ€CoVâ€2) by surveying 300 people living in Bangkok and vicinities area and age between 17 and 90 years old?
