The administration of the 3rd dose or booster dose for the general public in Phnom Penh began today in 11 of the 14 Khan of the capital.
The 11 Khan include Boeung Keng Kang, Chamkar Mon, Chbar Ampov, January 7, Sen Sok, Tuol Kok, Russey Keo, Meanchey, Dangkor, Kambol, and Pursenchey.
The other three Khan – Daun Penh, Chroy Changvar, and Prek Pnov – will start the booster dose administration on Oct. 30, according to a recent announcement of Phnom Penh municipal administration.
The municipal administration reminded each individual to continue implementing the “3 Dos, 3 Don’ts” measure even though they had received the booster dose.
The gap between the 2nd jab and 3rd jab is at least four months, the announcement underlined, adding that Sinovac vaccine will be used for the booster dose.
Necessary documents to get the booster shot are COVID-19 vaccination card and Khmer identity card or the document used for registration for the 1st dose, it pointed out.
Booster doses have been so far administered to 923,259 people who are frontline health personnel and officials, senior officials, local officials and the over-60s.
Cambodia has been conducting three other COVID-19 vaccination campaigns: for the 18 years old and up which already reached 99.20 percent, the 12 to under 18 years old 89.81 percent, and the 6 to under 12 years old 95.18 percent.
