Cambodia’s Ministry of Health has introduced KhmerVacc, a mobile app for COVID-19 vaccination registration, and for the health authorities to give the registrants their appointment date and place of inoculation. The move is to facilitate registration of the COVID-19 vaccination programme throughout the country, an attempt by the government to successfully inoculate 80 percent of the population to protect them against the deadly coronavirus.
The user-friendly mobile app will allow people to register for the vaccine, and subsequently wait for the health authorities to notify them of the date, time, and location where they will be vaccinated.
Cambodia has previously received praise for the handling of the pandemic. The Kingdom was ranked by the World Health Organization (WHO) among the top nations in the world with the best COVID-19 containment and impact management and has been praised for avoiding a large-scale breakout. The Bureau de Prospective Economique (BPE) of Senegal has also placed Cambodia in third place among the 166 studied nations across the world, and first place in Asia in terms of the Kingdom’s effective measures to contain the spread of COVID-19 and handle its fallouts.
