The Aga Khan University Hospital on Tuesday evening announced the suspension of the government-sponsored COVID-19 vaccination exercise.
The facility said the decision was made following the depletion of its AstraZeneca vaccine stocks.
The hospital is appreciating Kenyans who turned up in large numbers for the free vaccination, promising to resume the exercise once “we receive more doses from the Ministry of Health.”
As of Tuesday, March 30, 1.12 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine had been delivered in the country. A total of 806,000 of those doses have been distributed countrywide.
So far, 130,575 Kenyans had been vaccinated.
Kenya is in her third wave of the global pandemic, with worrying daily infections rising in the recent weeks.
Kenya’s COVID-19 caseload stands at 132,646. 92,290 patients have recovered from the disease. COVID-19 has claimed the lives of 2,147 people in the country.
