A total of 3,000,264 people in Cambodia have been vaccinated against the COVID-19 pandemic, or 30 percent of the planned 10 million people to be inoculated, as of June 14.
The figures were shared by the National Ad-hoc Commission for COVID-19 Vaccination, adding that of them, 2,537,274 have already got their second doses of COVID-19 vaccines.
In a Facebook post yesterday evening, Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen said the 3 millionth vaccinated person is Ms. Sum Sam-oeun. She will be awarded with a cash assistance of 10 million Riel (about US$2,500) like the one millionth and two millionth.
Members of the diplomatic corps, staff of UN agencies and international organisations and their family members were among the vaccinated people.
Cambodia has set to vaccinate around 10 million people or 62 percent of the total population against COVID-19 and up to the half of 2022, more than 95 percent are expected to be inoculated.
The Kingdom has so far received over 8 million doses of vaccines: 3.2 million doses of Sinopharm, 4.5 million doses of Sinovac, and 324,000 doses of AstraZeneca/SII (COVISHIELD) via COVAX Facility.
