PM Says Phnom Penh and Kandal Residents Prioritised for COVID-19 Vaccination

Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen said the next priority group for the vaccination programme against COVID-19 will be the residents of Phnom Penh capital and Kandal province.

According to his voice message shared this evening, the Premier advised the Ad-hoc Commission for COVID-19 Vaccination to prepare a vaccination plan for the people in Phnom Penh because it is a high-risk area and Kandal as the capital’s surrounding province.

Vaccination campaign has been being conducted for priority groups throughout the country, and the next group will be all Phnom Penh and Kandal residents, he added.

COVID-19 vaccination is currently on a voluntary basis, but in the future it would become an obligation, said Samdech Techo Hun Sen, explaining that it would be required when applying for a job, going abroad, and so on.
