National Pediartric Hospital off Russian Blvd. , near Royal University of Phmom Penh....5,000 riel for appointment/shots book and 10,000 riel for each shot.
10,000 riel to see a doc. fast-tracked for 40,000 riel.....Not a long wait for the shots.....Don't get ripped off by the private polyclinics that charge $100 (place where my kid was born charges this) abd up for a $2.50 needle... They do give an examination for that extra fee but up to you if you want it or need it.
If you do go to National Pediatric Hospital (or anywhere else in Cambodia), be sure that you get legible documentation of what has been given to your infant, or you may well end up having a real struggle later, trying to figure out what they've actually done.

In our case, our son's documentation appeared to have French and Khmer on it, and we needed to find out what he had received so that he could get anything missed back in Australia. I emailed the paperwork to a clinic in PP and the staff couldn't decipher it, rang the National Pediatric - no can help. Hopeless.

First clinic we went to in Oz wouldn't help, second one were pretty sure what to do, so we had little choice but to go with their catch up program.

It was a real pain in the neck trying to sort all this out, so be absolutely sure of what has been done, and that may save you some future grief.

When my kid was young he had a vaccination card that had all the names of vaccines and due dates printed on it so it was easy to follow and they'd put down when each was done.

Yes, you can get that leaflet in any clinic. Also, each vaccin comes with a sticker with the name in latin. You could buy a vaccinaties book And put the sticker in, together with the date. When you firdt start the vaccination schedule you will think you’re In full control But a schedule conbined with an overview of all shots already received makes live easy And Sometimes schools (overseas) require it.
