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.

"The relevant vaccination details and procedures for the aforementioned foreign nationals will be provided in due course," the letter said.

The Southeast Asian country launched an anti-Covid-19 inoculation drive on Feb 10 after receiving the first batch of the Sinopharm vaccine from China.
