Cambodia’s Mandates Missing Key Guidance

Vaccine mandates can be a key tool in limiting the pandemic’s spread—but Cambodia’s mandates threaten human rights, according to Human Rights Watch.
Mandates handed down by the Phnom Penh governor this month require proof of vaccination for everyone ages 6 and up to enter a range of public and private spaces from educational institutions to restaurants.
But HRW says authorities have failed to provide the public with key information about the restrictions and exemptions, ultimately leaving people vulnerable to being denied food, medical care, or education.
Rush to vaccinate: Cambodia greenlit vaccines for 6 to 12 year-olds back in September in a push to reopen schools—though the WHO has not endorsed any of the vaccines available in Cambodia for that age group.
