Cambodia allows citizens to get COVID-19 booster shot

Cambodia has allowed its citizens to get a third COVID-19 booster shot to build “real herd immunity,” according to the state-run Agence Kampuchea Press news agency.

In a statement on Wednesday, Prime Minister Hun Sen said a third dose of vaccines will be offered to people aged 12 and above.

“In order to rapidly build a ‘real herd immunity’ which is a key foundation to protect the people’s lives from COVID-19, particularly the Delta variant or other variants, as well as to get prepared for the plan to reopen all sectors and to live with COVID-19 in a new normal norm, the Royal Government decides to launch the COVID-19 booster shot policy to the general public aged 12 years old and above,” the readout said.
