Cambodia on Friday began a fourth round of vaccinations against the coronavirus with high-risk groups being the first to receive their next shots. Among those waiting at hospitals and clinics were frontline medical staff as well as members of the armed forces.

Government ministers, including Cambodia's Prime Minister Hun Sen, also received booster doses Friday. Hun Sen has appealed to all Cambodians to get fully vaccinated, including a booster, saying that is the only way to make sure to keep their families and communities safe from COVID-19.

Children from age 5 and up have been included in the program. Restrictions on domestic tourism, schools and other sectors were also lifted.
