The government is on track to wrap up its Covid-19 vaccination campaign in Phnom Penh next month with more than two million people inoculated, according to Ministry of Health spokeswoman Or Vandine.

Vandine, who is also head of the national Covid-19 vaccination commission, said during an inspection in the capital's various districts on June 10 that the immunisation drive was being accelerated to meet the target.

"In July at the latest, we will wrap up the campaign in the 14 districts of Phnom Penh. As of June 9, more than 1.7 million in the capital had been inoculated. The more than 250,000 residents in the remaining three districts will receive the jabs [soon]," she said.

As of June 10, Cambodia had vaccinated nearly 2.8 million people nationwide, or 27.95 per cent of the targeted 10 million.
