The first Kenyan will receive the COVID-19 vaccine tomorrow (Friday, March 5) at the Kenyatta National Hospital (KNH).
The AstraZeneca jab will be administered when Kenya’s National Vaccines and Immunisation Programme will be launching the national vaccination campaign at the biggest referral hospital and East Africa.
Speaking after flagging off the national distribution of the two-dose COVID-19 vaccine at the Central Vaccine Depot in Kitengela, Kajiado County, President Uhuru Kenyatta reiterated the government’s commitment to ensure the success of the vaccination exercise.
Uhuru cautioned Kenyans, including the media, to stop peddling falsehoods on the COVID-19 vaccination exercise saying frontline health workers and service providers will be the first in line to receive the vaccine.
Uhuru urged Kenyans to continue observing Covid-19 containment protocols.
