Cambodia to mix vaccines as booster shots to fight COVID-19

Cambodia will begin offering a booster shot against COVID-19, switching between the AstraZeneca and Chinese COVID-19 vaccines in an effort to fight the spread of the coronavirus in the Southeast Asian country.

Prime Minister Hun Sen, launching the vaccination campaign for 12-17 years old, said on Sunday (Aug 1) that the third dose will be offered to between 500,000 and one million frontline workers as a priority.

“People who have already been vaccinated with Sinopharm and Sinovac should be given AstraZeneca as the third booster dose,” Hun Sen said in a speech which was broadcast on social media.
