Cambodia to give third dose of Covid-19 vaccine to frontline officials

Cambodia will begin offering a third dose or booster dose of Covid-19 vaccine to frontline health workers, civil servants and armed forces in seven provinces along the Cambodia-Thailand border on Sunday, a health ministry’s spokesperson said on Saturday.

Those provinces include Battambang, Banteay Meanchey, Pailin, Koh Kong, Oddar Meanchey, Pursat and Preah Vihear, health ministry’s secretary of state and spokeswoman Or Vandine said in a statement.

“The move is to fight against Covid-19, particularly the Delta variant, which may spread into our community on a large scale if we all have not taken timely measures to prevent it,” she said.
