Cambodia’s total vaccination percentage, based on the 2019 census, finally broke the 85 percent mark, registering 86.26 percent as of November 2.
The increase in total immunization was facilitated by immunizing children five years and older adolescents receiving their first dose of COVID-19 vaccination.
The total number of people vaccinated in four age categories is as follows:
- 18 years and over – 10,011,421 people, 100.11%
- 12 to 17 years old – 1,791,096 people – 98.02 percent
- 06 to 12 years old – 1,931,138 people -101.78%
- 5 years – 68,316 people – 22.45%
This brings the total number of people vaccinated in four age categories to 13,801,971, approaching the 14.5 million people nationwide to be vaccinated against COVID-19 with at least one dose of the vaccine.
The total number of people fully immunized in three of the four categories is 13,897,477, including 9,646,315 adults, 1,699,525 adolescents and 1,751,439.
The total number of women who have received at least one dose of the vaccine is 6,924,394 while those who have completed their two-dose cycle is 6,559,477.
The number of frontline people and residents of Phnom Penh who have received the booster or third dose of the vaccine stands at 1,908,043 of which more than one million are residents of Phnom Penh and the rest of the front lines in eight provinces bordering Thailand or facing the heaviest returnees daily since the border reopened on August 13.
Cambodia plans to vaccinate children aged three and four in the near future as soon as the vaccination of all three categories, except children aged five, is fully completed.
