The Kingdom of Cambodia has issued an Emergency Use Authorisation (EUA) for Russia-made Sputnik V vaccine against COVID-19.
The EUA certificate for Sputnik V, manufactured by R-Pharm Russia, was signed on Oct. 29 by H.E. Prof. Mam Bunheng, Minister of Health of Cambodia.
On the same day, the Ministry of Health also granted EUAs to four other Russian COVID-19 vaccines, including CoviVac of Chumakov Centre, Sputnik-Light of Gamaleya Institute, EpiVacCorona of Scientific Research Institute of Molecular Biology (IMB SRC Vector), and EpiVacCorona of State Research Centre of Virology and Biotechnology.
Cambodia issued EUA for China-manufactured Sinopharm and Sinovac vaccines, and the AstraZeneca developed by the University of Oxford in February this year.
As of Oct. 28, 85.61 percent of Cambodia’s total population of 16 million have been vaccinated against the COVID-19 pandemic.
