Australia offers Cambodia 2.3 million doses of Pfizer vaccine

Prime Minister Hun Sen says the Covid vaccines will start arriving on Boxing Day.

Australia will deliver 2.3 million Covid-19 vaccines by the end of the year, living up to promises made to Prime Minister Hun Sen earlier this year.

Hun Sen said the vaccines would arrive on Boxing Day and Dec. 28 after he warned Australia he would purchase three million doses of Chinese made-Sinovac if Canberra failed to deliver on time.

The premier has also said Cambodians would receive a fourth booster shot following a rapid rollout of a vaccination program, which has resulted in an end to lockdowns and the Nov. 1 opening of the country in a bid to revive a pandemic-crushed economy.
