The Phnom Penh Municipal Administration calls on residents in the capital’s 14 districts who have received their second dose of Covid-19 vaccine to get their booster shot after a four-month interval.
In a notice dated October 8, it said the third-dose vaccination campaign for Phnom Penh residents will kick off on October 11 in 11 districts and on October 30 in the three others, noting that Sinovac jabs will be used.
Six of the 11 districts that will launch the jab drive on October 11 are Tuol Kork, Russey Keo, Meanchey, Dangkor, Kamboul and Por Sen Chey. This will be overseen by the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces under the Ministry of National Defence. Only those who have received their first and second doses administered by the military medics should get the booster shot at the above-mentioned districts. Vaccinations will begin at 2pm for these locations.
The five other districts that will also kick off their campaigns on October 11 are Boeung Keng Kang, Chamkarmon, Chbar Ampov, Prampi Makara and Sen Sok. This will be administered by medical personnel from the municipal Department of Health and volunteer medical workers. Vaccinations will start at 8am.
The three remaining districts – Daun Penh, Chroy Changvar and Prek Phnov – will begin vaccinations on October 30 in campaigns to be overseen by medical personnel from the municipal health department and volunteer medical group.
Vaccinees have to bring along their vaccination and national identification cards or other documents they used when receiving their first dose. They are advised to contact their local authorities or refer to the municipality's official announcement for further details.
