Cambodia is set to welcome another shipment of over 120,000 doses of Chinese-made Sinovac vaccine through Covax – a global initiative aimed at ensuring equitable access to Covid-19 vaccines.
According to Ministry of Health secretary of state York Sambath, the vaccines are scheduled to touch down in Cambodia this evening at 6:15pm.
Sambath, who will be present during the handover ceremony at Phnom Penh International Airport, said the exact number of the vaccine doses is 124,800.
Besides Covax, the Kingdom has also received Covid-19 vaccines through donations and bilateral agreements.
As of October 21, Cambodia had vaccinated over 13.6 million people aged 6 and over, or 85.27 per cent of the country's population of around 16 million.
