Cambodia has vaccinated 1 million out of its 16 million population against the Covid-19 so far, Health Ministry’s secretary of state and spokeswoman Or Vandine said here on Monday.

Panh Savannarith, a 36-year-old Phnom Penh resident, was the 1,000,000th person to be vaccinated, she said, adding that Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen provided the grant of 5 million riels (US$1,250) to Sovannrith for being the 1,000,000th vaccine recipient.

Speaking to reporters after delivering the cash grant to Savannarith, Vandine urged people to go for vaccination when their turns come in order to protect themselves from severe illness and hospitalization.
