PHNOM PENH (Xinhua): Cambodia said on Wednesday (Feb 24) that all foreigners living or working in the kingdom will be able to receive free Covid-19 vaccines in due course.

"All foreign nationals who are currently residing and working in Cambodia can get vaccinated against Covid-19 at no charge in accordance with Cambodian Covid-19 vaccination plans," said a foreign ministry's letter sent to Diplomatic Missions and the Office of the United Nations Resident Coordinator in Phnom Penh.
