Cambodia may miss out on the Sputnik V vaccine due to a belated request but hopes to be among the first to receive the second Russian-developed vaccine EpiVacCorona, Khmer Times reported Tuesday citing sources.

According to the newspaper, Cambodia lodged a request for the first registered vaccine only last week, after Russia had already pledged millions of doses to other countries worldwide. The request was made at a meeting between the country’s prime minister, Hun Sen, and Russian Ambassador Anatoly Borovik.
