Hun Sen gets early second dose of Covid jab ahead of ASEAN summit

Prime Minister Hun Sen and his wife Bun Rany received the second dose of Covid-19 vaccine on the morning of April 20 ahead of his visit to the ASEAN summit in the Indonesian capital Jakarta.

In his Facebook post, Hun Sen said he was scheduled to attend the ASEAN summit on Apri 24 and therefore needed to complete the second dose early. The vaccination was administered at his residence.

He said he and his wife were vaccinated with AstraZeneca, while his youngest daughter was vaccinated with Sinovac.

“I still get the jab on my left arm to keep my right arm ready for [heavy] workload. What I am concerned about is that whether I will be sleepy like after I got my first dose. If I am sleepy, documents will be piling up on my desk and I will not be able to do exercise,” he said.
